The measures taken to stop the coronavirus pandemic mean that the situation of the

borders - 

open, closed or with restrictions - is constantly changing.

And this triggers the questions: Which countries allow the entry of tourists, and particularly of Argentines ?;

Upon arrival at the destination, do you have to quarantine or present a negative PCR ?;

Is it necessary to be vaccinated?

It is not bad to remember, in the first place, that from the Migrations area they advise against traveling for non-essential reasons, and that the Argentine Government imposed a limit on the number of people who can enter the country through the Ezeiza International Airport.

The Destination Tracker website, where the updated situation of each country can be consulted (www.unwto.org/es/unwto-iata-destination-tracker)

Since July 24, it only receives

7,000 people per week

.

This causes the cancellation of flights and thousands of people are stranded without being able to return.

For this reason, if you decide to travel abroad, it is recommended to frequently visit the pages of the

embassies and consulates

of the place where you intend to go

, to avoid inconveniences.

“It is also advisable to visit the

Destination Tracker

website

of the International Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

In the case of needing to move through South America, it is advisable to visit the website of Mercosur and Associated States:

Suramérica Abierta

.

And if you need to travel to Europe, the website in Spanish of the European Union:

Reopen Europe

”, they suggest from the entity.

While some countries begin to live in a new normal, others

keep their territory closed

to tourism and the vast majority

ask for various requirements

to enter.

Here are some places where we can travel - and others that we cannot - Argentines.

Europe

A new wave of infections threatens Spain, and President Pedro Sánchez announced new measures for travelers.

Argentina is classified as

an epidemiological “high risk” country

, and therefore only Argentines with

a European passport

or who can prove a

specific situation

can enter Spain

.

Of course, those who enter must complete a

10-day isolation

, which can end sooner if a test is performed after 7 days and it is negative.

The measure will be in effect

until August 10

This announcement implies a setback, since entry had been authorized as of June 7 to all people vaccinated with the doses approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

In this sense, it is important to remember that vaccines widely used in Argentina, such as

Sputnik V

and

Sinopharm

and

Sinovac have

not yet been approved

by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

However, the procedures are underway and it is estimated that the approval

should not take much longer

.

Especially considering that both Sinopharm and Sinovac were approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).

In other words, Argentines who want to travel to Europe for tourism will be able to do so only if they completed the vaccination

schedule

with the approved vaccines, which are those of 

Pfizer-BioNTech

,

Moderna

(including that for young people from 12 to 17 years old),

AstraZeneca

and

Johnson & Johnson
