Argentina reopens vaccinated American travelers on November 1

After a significant drop in COVID-19 infection since the rise of the Delta variant last summer, the Argentine government has just issued an order to begin granting entry to fully vaccinated international travelers of all over the world from November 1st.

As long as foreign visitors are fully immunized and provide a negative PCR test performed within 72 hours of arrival in Argentina, no quarantine will be required. Fortunately, the South American country has a wide and diverse variety of natural wonders to experience while staying far enough away from others, with a million square miles of land available to explore.

Specifically, Argentina’s new entry requirements for foreign travelers, regardless of their citizenship, will be:

—Complete a complete schedule of vaccinations against COVID-19, with the final dose administered at least 14 days before arrival in the country.

—A negative PCR test performed within 72 hours of entering the country.

A negative COVID-19 test will not be required to be able to fly between the different regions of Argentina, to and from the capital of Buenos Aires.

According to Reuters’ Vaccination Tracker tool, 74.9 percent of Argentines have received at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19 and 57.1 are fully vaccinated. In addition to reopening the border, Argentina is sanctioning the opening of large-scale dance clubs and events with more than 1,000 attendees at 50 percent capacity, just for fully vaccinated people.

Monitoring of Johns Hopkins COVID-19 shows that Argentina has seen 5.29 million confirmed cases of the virus and 116,000 deaths over the course of the pandemic. At the time of publication, the number of new cases has been reduced to 1,385 from an all-time high of more than 41,000 observed at the end of May; and deaths with a seven-day average of 1,221, compared to a June peak of nearly 33,000.

The U.S. State Department is currently issuing a “Level 3: Reconsidering Travel” warning for Argentina, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also classifies the country as “Level 3 : COVID-19 High “in terms of risk of infection. The agency advises that travelers be fully vaccinated before traveling there, which they should be anyway if they hope to cross the border.
