The Embassy of the United States in Santiago is the diplomatic mission of the United States of America in Chile.


The Republic of Chile was recognized by the United States in 1823, and the U.S. Senate confirmed President James Monroe's nomination of Heman Allen as the first Minister Plenipotentiary to Chile. On October 1, 1914, the U.S. Legation in Santiago was elevated to Embassy status when Henry P. Fletcher was appointed as the first U.S. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Chile.[1][2]

During a period of military rule from 1973 to 1990 in Chile, the U.S. government played a controversial role in the events leading up to the overthrow of the democratically elected President Salvador Allende and the establishment of General Augusto Pinochet's regime. However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the U.S. shifted its stance to support the restoration of democracy in Chile. Ambassador Harry G. Barnes Jr. actively promoted the return to civilian rule and the end of human rights violations by the Pinochet regime.[3]

For more than 26 years, Chile has maintained a robust democracy. The benchmark 2003 United States-Chile Free Trade Agreement signifies the close cooperation on various global issues, including international commerce, rule of law, environmental protections, and human rights.[1][2]
