    I don't want to go to Santiago
    I'm willing and able to pay the fee.
    But my destination is Antofagasta, an international airport accessible by a change of planes in Lima, from the US, and waaaaaay north of Santiago
    Can I actually pay up there?
    And if i can't will I get into trouble?
    I've read posts that state the fee is collected ONLY at SCL
    But will I be illegal if I don't waste at least a day each way to go to SCL just to pay a dang fee?
    Or refused entry at ANT?
    BTW the Chile consulate in LA didn't know, but the nice lady couldn't believe that anyone would NOT want to go to Santiago

    There is an extra fee for US citizens arriving at SCL. You can legally enter Chile without that fee through any other available border crossing - airport, land, or sea.
