Have you thought about visiting Argentina? Check the entry requirements that have been in force since November 1st:

– Documentation showing Proof of Vaccination up to 14 days before the trip with either two doses or a single dose

– A Negative RT-PCR test carried out 72 hours before boarding

– Travel insurance that covers the costs of any treatment for Covid-19

– A completed Affidavit from the website of the Argentine government

– Children under 18 can enter the country with a negative RT-PCR, without the need for quarantining

Anyone who has not yet been vaccinated for Covid-19 can travel to Argentina, but must complete a seven-day quarantine, either at home or in a hotel. Afterwards they must take a RT-PCR test on the seventh day. If they are infected with Covid-19, they will need to isolate for an additional period, the cost of which will be borne by the traveler.
