The IUCN Red List status of White-chested Swift is Least Concern (BirdLife International 2012). The conservation status of White-chested Swift is difficult to assess adequately, however, until the breeding range of this species is ascertained.
Effects of human activity on populations
White-chested Swift apparently has declined in the Cauca valley in Colombia, a decline that perhaps is attributable, at least in part, to the regional use of agrochemicals (Collar et al. 1992).
