Buenos Aires announces reopening of national, international tourism
In coordination with the national government, the plan includes different locations for conducting tests in order to guarantee the safety of international and national tourists, as well as residents of the city, and includes isolation in the event that a test returns positive for coronavirus.
Visitors must submit an online affidavit, take a coronavirus test at their place of origin 72 hours prior to arrival, possess medical insurance with coverage for coronavirus, and take another test upon arrival before continuing on their journey.
In October, the Argentinean capital obtained the Safe Travels seal from the World Travel and Tourism Council, which guarantees that it is complying with health and safety protocols.
According to the Argentinean government, in 2019, 2.9 million international tourists and 6.9 million domestic tourists visited Buenos Aires, bringing in a total of 2.484 billion U.S. dollars in revenue to the city. ■
