Travelers may be required to present the confirmation e-mail they receive from this system to board a flight.

The form is available in Spanish and partly in English. Travelers 70 years and older may complete the form upon arrival in Argentina.

Unvaccinated foreign travelers are allowed to enter Argentina under strict limitations, including quarantine.

 

UPON RETURN TO THE US.

  • Negative Antigen Test All travelers regardless of their vaccination status must have an original printed or electronic negative COVID-19 viral test result (NAAT: RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA, NEAR, HDA, SDA, CRISPR, or Antigen: Rapid, Viral, Antigen Chromatographic Digital Immunoassay, Antigen Chemiluminescence Immunoassay, or Antigen Lateral Flow Fluorescence). The test must be taken a maximum of 1 day before the first scheduled departure time in the flight itinerary (if a flight is at 1 pm on a Friday, travelers could board with a COVID-19 negative test that was taken any time on the prior Thursday). Test results must include the traveler’s full name and at least one other identifier such as date of birth or passport number. The test must also clearly state that the results are “negative,” SARS-CoV-2 RNA not detected,” SARS-CoV-2 antigen not detected,” or “COVID-19 not detected.” A test marked invalid” is not acceptable. This requirement applies to all travelers, including US citizens, residents, and transit travelers. Travelers may use a self-test (sometimes referred to as a home test) that meets the given criteria.
  • Proof of full vaccination (vaccination card showing you got all the doses, depending on what vaccine you’ve chosen). Must have received the complete course at least 14 days prior to arrival.
  • Migrations affidavit https://ddjj.migraciones.gob.ar/app/home.php
    Travelers must complete and submit this again within 48 hours prior to boarding the flight to Argentina.
  • US Required Attestation and Airline Apps
    Depending on the airline you might need to download an app. American requires the VERIFLY app, United allows you to upload Covid information into their app and Delta has the  FlyReady app. It will make checking and boarding the plane easier and faster.  The app will require your record locator, and then to upload in PDF format, the negative test, and then to complete the US affidavit.

If you do not wish to download an app, or have trouble with it, simply print 2 copies of the form in the link above with you to Argentina and sign them before you board your flight home.
