Event:  The Embassy continues to engage the Argentine government and commercial airlines to secure approval for additional charter flights. There are currently no confirmed commercial flights from Argentina to the United States.

The Embassy continues to track U.S. citizens seeking to leave Argentina.  If you wish to leave and have not done so already, visit https://ar.usembassy.gov/covid-19, and provide the required information.

Please reference our Embassy webpage on COVID-19 for options and instructions on traveling to Buenos Aires from the provinces. Per Argentine regulations, only travelers with confirmed international flight reservations may travel from the provinces to the Buenos Aires metropolitan area 24 hours in advance of the flight. If your travel to Buenos Aires will take longer than 24 hours, please email the embassy at buenosaires-acs@state.gov.

U.S. citizens sheltering in place should be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. For the provision of medical care, food, shelter, or other needs, you will need to rely on the Argentine system.
