Event

Argentinian authorities have eased the country’s international travel restrictions and domestic COVID-19 measures as of June 17. Travelers are no longer required to be vaccinated or provide a negative PCR test result to enter the country. The city of Buenos Aires has also lifted the requirement to wear a face mask in enclosed spaces.

National measures
Outside of the city of Buenos Aires, people elsewhere in the country must still wear a face mask in certain enclosed public spaces, such as public transportation and passenger vehicles. Additionally, authorities may require people aged 13 and older to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination to enter places and events considered high-risk, including nightclubs, tours, concerts and other indoor and outdoor events with 1,000 or more attendees.

Provincial governments and the Capital District have the power to apply stricter measures if necessary; therefore, the exact restrictions in place in some local jurisdictions may differ from national guidelines.

International Travel Restrictions
Incoming travelers must complete an electronic affidavit for the National Directorate of Migration no later than 48 hours before departure for the country; however, travelers over 70 can complete it upon arrival. Argentine nationals or residents entering the country by land and for less than 24 hours are exempt from completing the electronic affidavit. Non-resident foreign nationals are also required to present proof of medical insurance including COVID-19 coverage; those entering the country by land and for less than 24 hours are exempt from this measure.

Authorities recommend travelers aged six and older who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 get tested within 24 hours of arriving in the country.

Authorities could reimpose, expand, tighten or otherwise change any restrictions with little or no notice, depending on disease activity over the coming weeks.

Tips

Follow all official instructions. Reconfirm all travel arrangements and business appointments. Ensure that contingency plans take into account other disruptive measures or extensions of current restrictions.
