COVID-19 measures in Argentina

Last update of the article on October 7th, 2020. We keep this page updated if COVID-19 measures changed.

Before you arrive in Buenos Aires, there are some COVID-19 measures that should be in order. If this is not completed, entry to Argentina will be refused. You will of course always have the opportunity to fill in certain forms during your flight, but if you prepare everything, your arrival will go a little smoother.

Declaración jurada

The Declaración jurada is a passenger locator form that you must fill in before arriving in Argentina. Click here to open. The form is available in Spanish and partly in English. Here we will explain it step by step.

The declaración jurada form must be completed between 48 hours and the time of arrival. In order to fill in the form completely, you must first know the seat number of your flight. Suppose you can check-in online for your flight 24 hours before the start? Only then will you be able to fill in the online form. That’s no problem.

Not everything has been translated into English. To make everything clear, we have made an instructional video.

The Argentina passenger locator form is one of the COVID-19 measures taken by the Argentinean government. It is a legally binding statement so please complete everything truthfully.

COVID-19 travel advice Argentina and measures

Argentina travel advice during this health crisis is clear and is made out of several topics. Below we will mention all the measures that the government takes to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

Getting around in Argentina and Buenos Aires

The country is still under strict lockdown until September 20th, 2020. Moving freely between provinces is not possible. You can’t take public transport in Buenos Aires city.

At all times you are allowed to travel to the airport for your upcoming flight.

Do you arrive or you need to travel to the airport? Then we strongly suggest taking a private transfer. Buenos Aires taxi’s are ok but every taxi has a different kind of approach to protect your health. Therefore, private transfer gives you more security. The car is ventilated, there is more time between passengers, and the disinfection of the car will happen more often.

Wearing a mouth mask is mandatory as soon that you leave your house or hotel room. Not wearing the mouth mask will result in a financial penalty by the police.

My roots in Buenos Aires started as a tourist. After some great adventures in Argentina, I moved in 2017 to the metropolitan city of Buenos Aires. I felt a need for correct and honest information for tourists. That's why I love to write for you. Sharing my discoveries in Buenos Aires. I hope you enjoy the city as much as I do! Feel free to support us by "Buy me a coffee ". Means a lot to us. ❤️


  1. I need to travel to Argentine to meet up with my fiancé . I plan to travel early December 2020. I have no objection to the 14 day quarantine. Do you think I can get an airline reservation? I’m willing to go to any province airport. Would this be considered a tourist trip? Please shed some light.

    • Hi Carmen 👋, if we may believe the Argentinian government, then regular flights should resume on October 15th. However(!) I expect that those flights will be only available for Argentinian residents and only for essential travels. I believe that December 2020 is a little bit too early for tourist activities.

      You can always make a reservation – if for example the price is very low – and reschedule it for free. Of course, check always the rebooking policy of the airline. Nowadays they are more flexible but you never know.

  2. Hi Glenn,
    this morning Lufthansa airlines confirmed my flight for Argentina (EZE Airport) for October 25th. Of course me and my wife will travel as a tourists. Reading your articles/news I am becoming a little pessimistic about Argentina board opening. More I took an eye to the “Declaración jurada” . It requires a 14 days isolation, so we cannot enjoy the country. I hope the situation will change rapidly and…without self isolation.
    many thanks to keep us updated with your articles/news

    • Hi Roberto 👋, I’m not really optimistic either about the reopening of the borders around October 25th. Even up today, the government didn’t announce anything about reactivating international tourism. But there is some international pressure to give the tourism sector some perspective. Now the question is, will the government give that? Let’s hope that they will announce something good soon.

      Indeed, the declaracion jurada will ask you to go into 14-day self-isolation. They are talking that a PCR test can be the solution to reduce the days.

      Saludos 🙂

    As of 09/27/2020 can I travel to Argentina for business? Our company is very interested in purchasing onions for the U.K. and Western Europe as well as the USA, our Indian growers are no longer allowed to export due to shortages, and we are also interested in sourcing Lemons for the U.K. and Western Europe. I live in the US and would like to travel down to Argentina on business in the next three weeks. Thanks for any help!!

    Best Regards,

    Dan Bissett

    • Hi Dan 👋, traveling to Argentina for a business trip is currently not possible. Sadly, it isn’t an exception on the list. Maybe from October 12th they will allow it but the prospect is not good right now. I wish you the best with the company’s future plans.
