REMINDER OF CURRENT TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

Below are the protocols to travel back to Argentina as of the Official Bulletin published March 25th, 2021.

  • Obtain a negative PCR 72 hrs prior to travel.
  • When you land in Buenos Aires you will need to take a 2nd PCR in the airport.
  • If your PCR test is positive, you will need to quarantine for 7-14 days in a government assigned hotel.  You will be responsible for all costs associated with your stay in quarantine.
  • If your PCR is negative, you will need to quarantine in your home for 7 additional days, being able to go out as of day 8 of your arrival and 2nd PCR test.
  • At the end of your quarantine you will need to get a 3rd PCR test to confirm that you can circulate freely.

 

Things to consider:

  • Commercial airlines will be allowed to enter and may be delayed due to gradual entry protocols.
  • At this time, there is no information regarding waivers of the above mentioned protocol for those who have had the vaccine. 
  • Please remember to check our COVID-19 information section on the website regularly to review updates, as well as local government websites. 
  • Please remember to check quarantine needs and travel restrictions for your country of destination.  Please make sure to plan for these needs well in advance. 

Expected Return Dates

As previously communicated, we expect all faculty to be available to work on campus on August 2nd. Those who travel must plan for sufficient time for quarantine upon returning from abroad so that you are able to work on campus on August 2nd. (This means returning to BA no later than July 26.) Unfortunately, at this time, we do not know if and when the government will allow schools to open in August so we ask that you remain open and flexible, and that you keep in contact with your supervisor over the June/July break regarding any possible changes.
