Just finished 6 weeks in Chile before heading to Argentina. It felt great knowing there was no way US anti-vaxxers were mingling among me!

@J Traveler,

Test on arrival you don’t pay for. You enter your passport information, take a ticket, have someone swab your throat and nose and then results come back ordinarily in 8-12 hours with the lab they partner with. If you overnight at a hotel, results should be back when you wake up.
