As of March 20, 2020 and by Decree 297/20, the entire country entered a period of social,

preventive and obligatory isolation.

What does this mean?

That you cannot leave your home except to provide yourself with essential items, such as food,

cleaning supplies and medicines.

If you do not comply with these rules, you are breaking the law.

If you have traveled to a country where the virus is spreading or have been in contact with

someone who tested positive, you must stay in isolation for 14 days.

If you have any of the symptoms, call free of charge at 107.

  • If you wish to bring a cat or dog into Argentina, it must have been vaccinated against rabies between 30 days and 12 months before arrival. An accredited vet from your home country must also complete the Certificado Veterinario de la Argentina (Argentine Veterinary Certificate) and include a copy of the rabies vaccine certificate.
  • In the instance that animal is being imported for commercial purposes, these certificates must also be presented to the Argentine Consulate in your country of residence for legalisation (personal pets do not require this approval).
  • Airlines must inform the Argentine airport authorities about the animal's arrival at least 24 hours in advance in order to guarantee the attendance of a vet when the animal arrives.
  • Other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammels such as rodents and rabbits) do not need anti-rabies certificates, but must meet other requirements and must have a health certificate.
