Argentina’s border closure has been further extended until August 30th.  Airlines have requested ANAC (National Civil Aviation Administration) to increase routes to Argentina for September and October.  These flights would be limited to foreign nationals with special visa permits as essential workers, residents, temporary workers and Argentinian citizens.

Immigration authorities have started to approve Special Entry Permits for non-resident foreign nationals performing essential activities. However, the issuance of visas is at the discretion of the relevant consulate, which may not issue a visa even supported by a Special Entry Permit – this should be checked with the relevant consulate on a case-by-case basis.

Residence documents issued by the Immigration Office expiring from March 17th and onwards are now automatically extended until September 17th. Foreign nationals in this situation will not be penalized and existing interviews will be rescheduled.
