What permits are needed to leave and enter Argentina on a private flight during the Covid-19 pandemic?
A second wave is being planned worldwide by Covid-19 and Argentina is already taking the necessary measures on flights both domestic and out of the country. It is important to keep this in mind when a person needs to travel, whether it is for business or an emergency, because every government has a great responsibility in its hands, which is to protect its inhabitants. For this reason we want you to know more about this subject.
To be able to travel at this time, it is required the approval of a permit application to ANAC (National Civil Aviation Administration). Only Argentineans with legal residence or foreigners living in Argentina with legal residence are being given permission to enter and leave the country. Such permit must be requested 72 hours before the day a person needs to travel and most countries will send the passenger as soon as he arrives at his destination to a good category hotel, where he must spend 14 days to take care of his health and wellbeing.
To leave the city where you live, you must justify a series of questions about the reason for the trip, proposed by the government to have a better control in the area of public health. Here are three questions that you will surely find when you want to take a plane: “Why do you ask for permission to travel,” “In what area of work do you work,” and “What is your nationality?
It should be noted that the situation in each city in Argentina varies, due to the number of people infected. That way, each government will have a different control over each province when the reason for a trip must be considered. In addition, a person’s nationality will always be an important factor, because if you want to return to your home country, repatriation flights are an excellent option and governments are flexible in approving that case.
