The Argentine government has officially announced that the country is open to foreign visitors again as of November 1, 2021. That said, before buying a plane ticket, check for updates as government regulations can change in a matter of days. A good first site to check with is the Argentine Ministry of Tourism and Sports.
Safety first. Keep up to date on the Covid-19 Pandemic situation in Argentina.
As of October 23, 2021, 55.6% of the Argentine population is completely vaccinated. At the current rate of vaccination, according to Reuters, by the end of November the figure should reach 65%. (71.9% of the population has at least one dose.)
Schools have returned to in-person classes as of September. As we are now in the spring in the southern hemisphere there is more ventilation. Wearing masks in public transportation, taxis, schools and government offices is mandatory, and, speaking anecdotally, I have never seen anyone enter a store without a mask.
Requirements and Conditions for entry to Argentina
– Complete COVID-19 vaccination record. You must have received the last dose at least 14 days prior to the day you enter.

We will be updating this site in the next few weeks with any changes to these requirements as well as further information on the best private health care facilities in Buenos Aires for foreign travelers.
