    Also note that the agricultural service (SAG) is now requesting that all used equipment, including vehicles, brought into the country comes with a phytosanitary certificate (meaning it has been fogged). Otherwise it could be quarantined before release.
    /QUOTE ]

    The fogging is only required when the bike has been shipping imported to Chile from the U.S. being perforned at the origin 5 days max previous of being shipped. A certificate is issued and submitted to Chilean Customs.

    Crossing border with an anerican reg. bike, such fogging is not enforced.

    I just dropped my bike off at the shipper in L.A.
    No mention of the ag. permit.
    Does anyone know if they will fog it in Chile ?

    Chilean Agriculture and Livestock Authority ‘SAG’ has recently issued a provisional regulation to control the entry into Chile of two pests, the Asian Gypsy Moth and the Brown Marmorated Stink bug.

    The regulations apply to any product that consists of used clothes, toys and used vehicles (cars, trucks, machinery among others) that are imported to Chile from USA, China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

    The aforementioned goods must carry an original Phytosanitary Treatment Certificate, which has to be presented to SAG upon arrival to Chile.

    Certificate must include:

    * Name of Company performing the Thermal Fogging Treatment
    * Exporter’s Name and Address
    * Thermal Fogging Treatment date
    * Type and amount of items Thermal Fogging treated
    * Name/Code of Thermal Fogging Treatment applied.

    I'm pretty sure it can be done in Chile but it will delay your clearing customs.

    Thanks for the above.
    I'll see if my shipper can take care of this.

    Hey A, where are you cooking down South ?

    I'm in The Pearl of the Strait, a.k.a Punta Arenas, most of the time.

    Yes Punta Arenas is a beautiful city.
    Looking forward to staying there again.
    It should be time for me to change my oil
    when I get there. Can I find good moto oil there?

    Would you have any suggestions for good restaurants there ?

    Max,

    The phitosanitary fogging should be performed before is shipped . 5 days previous max,
    and a cetficate is required from the applicator.
    The thermal fogging must be PYROCIDE 100 , against stink bug.

    No problem getting a good mechanic shop and decent restaurants here. Just make contact when you get closer.
