November 2. Argentina opened its borders to the world Monday, welcoming fully vaccinated travelers to experience the country’s amazing wine, breathtaking mountains, and deep-rooted culture.
Eligible travelers must have received a completed vaccination at least 14 days before coming and must show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of entering the country, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports.
Travelers will also have to fill out an “Affidavit of Migration” and show proof they have insurance that covers COVID-19.
The opening comes as Argentina has vaccinated about 67% of its population and COVID-19 cases have significantly dropped since the late spring and early summer, according to Reuters.
In Buenos Aires, bars have been allowed to stay open until 3 a.m., according to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports. And discos can open at 50% capacity.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently classifies Argentina as a “Level 3” destination, indicating a “high” level of COVID-19 transmission. The agency recommends only fully-vaccinated travelers visit.
