It is no longer necessary to complete the Electronic Sworn Declaration to enter or to leave Argentina. The new policy is enacted with Disposition N° 1975/20221, which was announced on 26 August 2022 by the Argentinean government. This new Disposition supersedes Disposition N° 3025/20202 which is nullified effective August 26.
WHY THIS MATTERS
This measure will bring relief and certainty for those returning to their homeland and places of residence considering the global impact that COVID-19 and new strains has in people’s lives nowadays.
Employees and their family members will no longer be burdened by the need to present the Electronic Sworn Complete vaccination schedule at least 14 days from the start day of the trip.
Beyond this measure there are some ways of life that, given current circumstances, will remain as leading practices. For example, remote working for globally-mobile employees – apart from essential workers – to the extent possible remains a prudent way, for the time being, for employers to foster the safety of their employees and help with business continuity.
Continuing Some Existing Measures
Measures advising people to keep 1.5 meters apart, and the use of mouth coverings / face-masks, should still continue to be followed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and its strains.
Any individuals impacted by the travel restriction extension may wish to consult with their global mobility advisers and immigration legal counsel as soon as possible for advice on next steps.
The KPMG International member firm in Argentina is tracking these matters closely. We will endeavor to keep readers of GMS Flash Alert posted on any important developments as and when they occur.
