When sending money to Chile, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply to sending large sums of money overseas depending on many factors including:

  • how the money is going to be used
  • how much you are sending
  • the source of the funds
  • if the money has been taxed elsewhere

For example, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums of money abroad as a gift. See our Guide to Sending Money to Family Abroad for more details.

How to send money to Chile at a great exchange rate

When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the Chilean peso (CLP) is affected by copper prices, as copper is one of the country’s largest exports. The value of the USD, and the rate of growth of China’s economy, can also influence the CLP.
