Argentina Opens to Foreign Travelers November 1st

Fully vaccinated foreign travelers will be allowed to enter Argentina beginning November 1, 2021. After closing its borders in February 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Argentine Ministry of Health has approved the country’s reopening, thanks to a 50% vaccination rate in Argentina and the increased rate of vaccinated people globally.

Travelers must be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before arrival in Argentina. (Fully vaccinated means the person has received one shot of a one-shot vaccine or both shots of a two-shot vaccine.) Argentine authorities will require evidence of vaccination and accept all vaccines approved in the traveler’s country of origin. Traveler’s also need a negative PCR COVID-19 test no older than 72 hours before boarding in order to be exempted from quarantine. Travelers will need to take another PCR test within five to seven days of arrival in Argentina. Travelers must also have travel insurance that covers COVID-19 treatment.

Argentine immigration authorities require that all travelers entering or exiting Argentina submit an electronic sworn statement 48 hours before their arrival/departure. The form is available in Spanish and English here (  Travelers may be required to present the confirmation e-mail they receive from this system to board a flight.

Also, everyone entering Argentina must download Argentina’s COVID-19 Ministry of Health App, designed to alert people if they have possibly been exposed to another person who tests positive for COVID. All passengers transiting Argentina must comply with the same requirements as those passengers entering and remaining in Argentina.
