Uruguay will fully open its borders to foreign tourists who are vaccinated with two doses, starting in November, while Chile remains closed. Both are among the most vaccinated countries in the world.

At the same time, Cordoba, Salta and Mendoza were confirmed this Friday as the provinces that have requested the opening of their international airports and some of their border crossings to receive from abroad Argentines, residents and tourists from Chile and Uruguay.

If approved, the three provinces will be added to the quota of 2,300 international passengers that will be allowed per day as from Monday, September 6. The Government assures that today there is an average of up to 1,500 passengers arriving per day at Ezeiza, after a series of tug-of-war after the hard closing of last July when, fearing the entry of the Delta virus variant, the government lowered from one day to another the entry of passengers on foreign flights to 600.
