What do I expect?
We all waited long for the moment that the Argentine government announced the reopening of the international borders. And from November 1st the Argentine borders are back open. My expectation was late 2021, beginning 2022.
Borders of Argentina reopen soon!
As of October 1st, the Argentina borders will reopen for citizens of neighboring countries. The borders of Argentina are reopened from November 1, 2021.
Read here the requirements to enter Argentina when the borders reopen. In the future, you will find there all the information about the COVID app or how to prove you are fully vaccinated.
Fantastic news that we have all been waiting for for a long time. But I’m tempering the enthusiasm a bit.

Air New Zealand, Emirates, and Qatar suspended their routes to Buenos Aires for an indefinite time. They will not resume the route when regular commercial flights are back allowed in Argentina.
Domestic flights in Argentina
Domestic flights are possible back. You do have to know to the measures that can differ from province to province.
I recommend taking a private transfer instead of a taxi. I have found that the hygiene measures per taxi are very different and with a private transfer I had more confidence. I made a guide on how to get to Ezeiza airport in Buenos Aires.
Then the question is what is the best time to visit Argentina and how many days you should spend in Buenos Aires. I answered these questions with pleasure and I look forward to when the tourism resume in Argentina. ☺️
