translated from Spanish: Borders open: Uruguayan and Chilean tourists will be allowed in

While coronavirus infections continue to decline, and the Delta variant delays its impact in Argentina despite having exceeded the threshold of community circulation, the national government continues to make progress in relaxing restrictions in the face of the pandemic. In the last hours, sources from the Casa Rosada confirmed that they will authorize the entry of Uruguayan and Chilean tourists from September 6. If the experience is convincing and the evolution of the pandemic allows it, the perspective is to continue with passengers from other Latin American, North American and European countries. According to the latest provision of the National Directorate of Migration, as of September 6, provincial governors will be able to propose the implementation of a “pilot experience” of entry of foreigners from those neighboring countries only with complete vaccination schemes and mandatory quarantine. The Government expects the opening of borders to foreign tourism to be progressive. In fact, Córdoba, Salta and Mendoza made a request on Friday to open their international airports and some of their border crossings to receive from abroad Argentines, residents and tourists from Uruguay and Chile.According to Clarín, representatives of the three provinces raised the request in a meeting they held with the national director of Migration,  Florencia Carignano, and the director of Border Health, Claudia Madies.Al not being a border province, Córdoba requested to open only its airport. Mendoza, in addition to its international air terminal, asked for the border crossing of Christ the Redeemer. Salta, for its part, managed the reception of international passengers by air, and Chileans and Argentines from the Paso de Sico.De be authorized, the three provinces will thus be added to the quota of 2300 international passengers per day from Monday, September 6, as stated in the provision of Migrations.It should be remembered that the Argentine borders are closed since March 2020, although there is a fourth province that since June works on protocols for the reception, from October, of international tourism: Tierra del Fuego, through cruise ships from abroad.
