Argentina Suspends Flights to and from Italy

The Argentina Migration Directorate announced today, among the measures to combat Covid -19, the suspension of flights to and from Italy. In a press release, it is specified that "starting from recommendations of the Ministry of Health, and within the framework of a detailed work by the head of government and the Ministries of Interior and Transport, the suspension, arrival and departure of flights from and to Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Australia", maintaining "the restrictions introduced for Great Britain".

The statement from the Argentine authorities does not specify the duration of the measure, which seems to be linked to the evolution of the epidemiological situation concerning, among other things, the spread of variants of Covid-19. In general, the Argentine government has announced that starting at 00:01 on 25 December 2020, and until 8 January, it will introduce new requirements for the entry and exit of Argentines and residents through the international airports of Ezeiza or San Fernando, who will be the only ones to be able to enter Argentina. These requirements concern the submission of a negative (molecular) PCR test and the implementation of mandatory seven-day quarantine.
