Chile–Estonia relations are foreign relations between Chile and Estonia. Chile re-recognized Estonia on August 28, 1991 and diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on September 27, 1991. Chile is represented in Estonia through its ambassador who resides in Helsinki (Finland) and through an honorary consulate in Tallinn. Estonia is represented in Chile through an honorary consulate in Santiago. The current Chilean ambassador to Estonia, Carlos Parra Merino, officially presented his credentials to the Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in June 2007. Carlos Parra Merino resides in Helsinki.[1]


  • An agreement on visa-free travel between Estonia and Chile came to force in 2 December 2000.[2][3][4]
  • The two countries also have in force a Memorandum on co-operation between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs.[2]
  • Agreements on cultural, tourism, and IT cooperation are being readied.[2]


Chile is among Estonia's most important foreign trade partners in South America.[5] In 2007, trade between Estonia and Chile was valued at 6.3 million EUR. Estonian exports included mainly machinery, mechanical equipment, and mineral fuels; Chile exports included mainly wine, fish, crustaceans and fruit. In 2004, 83% of Chile exports to Estonia, then totaling 2.4 million EUR, consisted of wine.[2] In 2008, Chilean wines held the highest share of Estonia's imported wine market, followed by Spanish wines.[6] Due to its climate being unsuitable for large-scale grape production, most wine sold in Estonia is imported.


In 2006, Estonia and Chile issued the joint Antarctic themed stamp series, designed by Ülle Marks and Jüri Kass, bearing images of the Emperor penguin and the minke whale.[7] The works of Chilean writers Isabel Allende, Pablo Neruda and José Donoso have been translated into Estonian.[2]
