Does the white covid card serve proof as of vaccination? I'm confused about the app mi argentina.

I was just wondering if anyone could elaborate on the no social gatherings indoors in the first 7 days. Does this include things like going to dinner or museums?

There’s a lot of misinformation in this post or it’s confusingly written. I’ve been in Argentina for a month and that app only works if you’re an Argentinian National.

Also, the PCR test between the 5th and 7th day isn’t required. It was tentatively outlined for reopening in November but never required. It’s also not mentioned on the US Embassy website either.

@Dee, here from the official portal of the Argentine State: (link) Note it clearly states test to be performed between third and fifth day, not 5th and 7th as many websites are stating.

@Jim,

Can you kindly source this to an Argentinian announcement somewhere? Nothing is coming up online.

@Kashlee Kucheran, the 5-7 day PCR test came into effect 30th December.

@Kashlee Kucheran,

Looks to be outdated information. Unless it was reinstated somewhere, Google tells me it was never enforced and effectively eliminated October 26th a few days before general tourism opening. Also, Aerolineas Argentina doesn’t mention it for vaccinated tourists with their list of requirements. I also was not promoted to do this prior to entry or after.

We have updated the information that the app may only work for residents. The day 5-7 PCR test is still showing on many government sites, like the UK gov site for example, so we will leave it on the guide (link)
