Borders of Argentina reopen soon!

On September 21, 2021, the minister of health announced that the borders of Argentina will reopen on November 1, 2021, for all foreigners if they are fully vaccinated.

What vaccines?

Most vaccines will be allowed. Pfizer, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, Sputnik, and Sinopharm as these vaccines are also used in Argentina. Johnson and Johnson’s vaccine is under investigation by the government health service.

What are the requirements to enter Argentina?

During the press conference, it became clear that there are some requirements to enter Argentina.

  • Fully vaccinated for at least 14 days on the day of arrival in Argentina.
  • Present a negative PCR test no older than 72h.
  • Get a new PCR test between days 5 and 7 in Argentina.
  • Those who are not fully vaccinated, including minors, must perform quarantine, a PCR test on arrival, and a PCR test on day 7.
  • When 50% of Argentines are vaccinated, the rule of a PCR test between 5 and 7 for fully vaccinated foreigners will be stopped.

I look at Argentina's Covid vaccination rate everyday.  They are currently at 44.5% full vaccinated.  On September 11, they were 40.1% fully vaccinated.  So, they should hit that 50% vaccinated threshold well before foreigners are allowed in on November 1.  We are arriving on November 20 for a cruise that doesn't leave until November 26.  I'm hoping that the second PCR test requirement will be dispensed with by the time we arrive.

According to the Reuters COVID tracker Argentina citizens are being given shots at a rate where 10% are inoculated every 32 days.  Unfortunately this has slowed a bit - last month it was 23 days.
