Argentina: The borders are open, but how exactly can you enter?
Today we are sharing more of an informative piece, this is to say, this week the fantastic news has been released that after a very long time, Argentina’s borders are open again to tourists, and the beautiful Latin American nation is ready to receive visitors from around the globe once more, meaning that it is our job to clear up any details. As with many countries worldwide following the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still conditions and requirements for travellers to fulfil either before, during, or after their stay, in order to maintain security of both the health of visitors and also residents of Argentina.
For any prospective traveller, this is a key piece of information, as nobody wants to arrive somewhere and be denied entry at the border due to missing information or lack of preparation. As Argentina is still in the reopening process and has not been this accessible for quite some time, it is likely that you are unfamiliar with the requirements. It is for this reason that they will be shared below:
· Be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before travelling
· Present a negative PCR test 72 hours before entering Argentina
· Present a further negative PCR test 5-7 days after entering the country
· If not fully vaccinated, you will need to undertake a quarantine period of 7 days
This really is not an extensive list, and it is also worth mentioning at this point that no nationality is barred from entry, making Argentina more accessible than at any other point during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing hope for normality resuming in the near future.
As well as this, in the event that you should present a positive test from your PCR test, a 10-day quarantine period will be necessary in order to ensure the spread of the virus is curbed and contained to protect you and also anyone you may otherwise have come into contact with.
While these are the specific entry requirements under COVID-19 protocol, other entry requirements remain the same, and applying for visas is the same as well, meaning if you come from a country which requires a visa to enter Argentina, you will still need to ensure you complete and organise this correctly well in advance of travel to minimise the potential for any issues that could otherwise arise.
So, if you think Argentina may be the next travel destination on your list and you need some more assistance, get in touch with us today! At Creimerman we are delighted to help people from all over the world to expand across borders and grow their business and expand their personal horizons, and we would love to work with you to make you the next.
