Detailed Restriction/Reopening Information For Argentina
Data Last Updated: October 29, 2020

General Information

Partially Open

Argentina  has reopened its borders for tourism but only to travelers coming from its neighboring countries.

Starting October 30, 2020, residents of Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Uruguay can enter Argentina through air and sea for tourism.

There's no mandatory quarantine needed, for as long as they can provide a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of entry. All visitors must also sign an affidavit declaring they are Covid-free and agree to a health screening including temperature checks.

Mask Requirement

Mask requirements differ in different states/regions within this country.

Internal Restrictions/Closures

Authorities in Argentina will reimpose or extend Phase 1 restrictions, which include the strictest quarantine measures, in several cities, as well as the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Region, through at least Aug. 30. The decision to maintain tightened restrictions was made in response to higher coronavirus disease (COVID-19) case numbers.

Residents are still allowed outside, but only for essential activities, such as purchasing food and medicine or attending jobs in essential and critical sectors, such as government, health, security, and the production of essential goods. 

Approved businesses deemed to be critical may also continue to operate. Outdoor exercise is permitted 1800-1000.

Nationwide, the ban on all social gatherings will be extended until Aug. 30. Cinemas, theaters, clubs, and cultural centers remain closed. Tourism activities remain banned. Residents are required to wear protective face coverings and adhere to social distancing guidelines when in public.

Airlines & Transport

From July 2020, there are some international flights back to Argentina. Iberia, KLM, and Air France are flying once a week. But these flights are only available for Argentine residents.

Departing flights for repatriation purposes have occurred in limited numbers. 

As of Oct 21, domestic flights and long-distance buses and trains have resumed; however, interprovincial travel remains highly restricted and reserved only for essential workers, persons requiring medical attention, individuals intending to return to their home provinces, and other individuals with special authorization. The availability of domestic flights depends on the discretion of airlines to resume flight routes. Authorities are likely to continue the established checkpoints along thoroughfares to enforce internal travel restrictions.
