Understanding the relation between the different forms of inseparability in quantum mechanics is a longstanding problem in the foundations of quantum theory and has implications for quantum information processing. Here we make progress in this direction by establishing a direct link between quantum teleportation and Bell nonlocality. In particular, we show that all entangled states which are useful for teleportation are nonlocal resources, i.e., lead to deterministic violation of Bell's inequality. Our result also extends the phenomenon of superactivation of quantum nonlocality, recently proven by C. Palazuelos [Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 190401 (2012)], and suggests that the latter might in fact be more general than initially thought. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.87.042104
