I'm going to be travelling through Peru for a month, staying strictly to the regions of the country where there's no risk whatsoever of Yellow Fever. Following this month, I'm flying to Santiago de Chile one morning, and late in the afternoon of the same day I'll have a flight to Easter Island, where I'll stay for a week.
Apparently the entry rules for Easter Island (note: not Chile) are that proof of yellow fever vaccination is "Required for travelers coming from an endemic zone" (Later on that page it defines "traveling from an endemic zone" as "transit through an endemic zone in the previous 6 days. Country requirements are subject to change at any time; therefore, CDC encourages travelers to check with the appropriate embassy or consulate prior to departure." Although I'm wondering if there's any meaning in the difference between "travelling from an endemic zone" which is listed for most countries, versus Easter Island's "coming from an endemic zone".)
1) Does anyone have a link to the appropriate embassy or consulate where I can find out if this still holds?
2) Does anyone know if there's direct transport to Easter Island from anywhere that's an endemic zone, or have any other argument which could convince me that "coming from" doesn't apply to me since I'd be "coming from" Chile?)
3) Does anyone have personal experience with flying to Easter Island after having recently visited Peru, and can tell me anything about how strictly they check? I'd really hate having to get the expensive and for me totally useless Yellow Fever vaccine just to comply with bureaucratic rules, yet obviously I'd hate even more to be denied entry to Easter Island over something like this.
