🚨 Travel Advice for Argentina

Closed

for travel
International travel to Argentina is permitted for vaccinated travelers. There are exceptions for non-vaccinated citizens and those traveling for 'essential reasons'.
It is necessary to comply with requirements to ensure entry is allowed.

Exceptional travel

Exemptions to the border closure are in place for essential reasons, including travel for business, studies, or humanitarian reasons. Travelers falling into these categories should apply for approval through a local Argentine Consulate. Travel for tourism is not permitted unless fully vaccinated.

Vaccination required

Travelers are required to present a valid international certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, with the use of an approved vaccine. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days before departure. Proof of vaccination should be validated via the 'Mi Argentina' mobile app or via a document from a national or state-level public health body.
A pre-departure test must still be presented but vaccinated travelers are exempt from isolation and testing on arrival.

Conditional quarantine

Non-vaccinated nationals and residents will be tested on arrival and are required to self-isolate for 7 days. Local authorities will determine if the isolation period can be completed at a private residence or in a designated quarantine hotel.
A PCR test will be administered at the end of the isolation period and those testing negative will be relieved from isolation. All testing and isolation costs will be at the traveler's expense.

Test/medical certificate required

Proof of a negative PCR test, taken within the previous 72 hours, must be provided on departure.
Alternatively, those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 are exempt from testing requirements and may provide proof of a positive antigen or PCR test accompanied with a medical certificate confirming recovery, taken at least 10 days before departure and not more than 90 days, on departure.

Vaccinations and vaccinated travel

Travelers who present a valid certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19 issued in some countries are exempt from pre-departure testing, post-arrival testing on day 8, and quarantine requirements. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days before departure.
Vaccinated travelers are still required to book a rapid lateral flow test or PCR test for day 2 after arrival and complete a passenger locator form. Travelers testing positive on the rapid lateral flow test will undergo PCR testing. Those who test positive on the PCR test will be required to self-isolate for 10 days.
Vaccination exemptions will only apply if the full dose and certificate were issued in the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and other specific countries.

Quarantine required

Travelers are required to self-quarantine for 10 days on arrival at their own residence or accommodation, or the full duration of the trip if staying less than 10 days.
If traveling to England, travelers may apply for the 'Test to Release' scheme to be tested on the fifth day after arrival and be relieved from self-isolation early, if the result is negative. Those with a positive result will be required to self-isolate for another 10 days.

Testing on arrival

Those traveling to England are required to purchase a 'COVID Testing Package' before departure, for 'Day 2 and day 8 tests'. These tests must be administered twice during isolation, on or before day 2 and on day 8.
Vaccinated travelers who meet the exemption criteria are only required to book a 'Day 2 test'.
Unvaccinated travelers staying for less than 10 days, and vaccinated travelers staying for less than 2 days, are still required to book the relevant testing package regardless of the duration of their stay. The tests only have to be taken if the travelers are still in England on the test dates.
Proof of purchase for this testing package must be provided on departure. This can be booked directly at https://quarantinehotelbookings.ctmportal.co.uk/ or a list of approved third-party test providers can be found at https://www.gov.uk/find-travel-test-provider
