According to the Sherpa website sent to me by the airline, one of the following tests is required to fly back into the US (for vaccinated travelers):

NAAT: RT-PCR, RT-LAMP, TMA, NEAR, HDA, SDA, CRISPR, or Antigen: Rapid, Viral, Antigen Chromatographic Digital Immunoassay, Antigen Chemiluminescence Immunoassay, or Antigen Lateral Flow Fluorescence

Can anyone confirm from recent experience that CDRossi's rapid antigen ("test rápido de antígenos"), or Centralab's "antigen" test is accepted for this requirement? I've done the PCR previously, but the results are slower and it costs almost twice as much. Common sense says yes, but you never know.

Second question, if I get to Ezeiza 4 hours before my flight, and for some reason my antigen test is not valid or too old, is there still a place at Ezeiza that can test fast enough to make my flight?
