“It is a decision made to receive foreign tourists from neighbouring countries. It is an important income for our economy in a new stage in this pandemic that allows us to turn the page, although without abandoning the fight against the virus, with great care and many precautions “ , he claimed.

“Tourism is going to be one of the great reactivators of our economy; we cannot deny that we need foreign exchange income and for that tourism will help a lot,” he added.

Lammens announced that the decision will be included in the decree of necessity and urgency that will be published this Sunday with the new stage of isolation and next week the protocols will come out and the administrative decisions with the specifications will be known.

“We are working with the city of Buenos Aires to establish the protocols” , he assured.

The trips cannot be made by bus and only tourists will be received by air and, in the case of Uruguay, also in river services. The rules will begin from the week of Monday, November 2nd.

The official detailed in a dialogue with radio Miter that Tourists will not be required to comply with quarantine and the medical requirements are being finalized, which in principle would consist of a PCR test with a negative result in the country of origin and some additional test upon arrival in Argentina.

In addition, their temperature will be taken upon arrival and they must sign an affidavit.
