On 1 Nov 2021, Argentina reopened its borders to the world and immediately made it easier for fully vaccinated tourists to enter. As of writing, these are the only travel requirements:

  1. That the fully vaccinated tourist has completed vaccination at least 14 days before travelling to Argentina. 
  2. Fully vaccinated tourists must provide a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of entering Argentina. 
  3. They will have to fill out Argentina’s “Affidavit of Migration” and show proof that their insurance covers COVID-19.
  4. All travellers must take an additional COVID-19 test upon arrival, and undergo a further test between days five and seven of their stays.
  5. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated, including children, are subject to a mandatory seven-day quarantine in addition to the testing protocols. Read the advisory here.

This was announced by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, who said on their website: “The country of the End of the World reopened its borders on 1 November for travellers from all over the planet. The destination of nature on the surface, of the best wine, of the colourful mountains and the mirrored lakes is ready to receive you.”

By best wine, the ministry was referring to Argentina’s world-class wineries you can encounter on wine tours in cities like Mendoza and Cafayate. And of course, one can’t ignore the country’s Fourteen Coloured Mountain aka Hornacal in North Argentina. Want to see a sample of a one-week Argentina itinerary? Click here
