Recent experiences flying into EZE?

I have a flight booked from Lima for this Sunday. I went and got a PCR test today, but they told me the results would actually be ready today! And not tomorrow. The issue is Argentina apparently requires test results no farther out than 72 hours of arrival.

Should I redo this painful and expensive test again on Saturday?

I don't think it will matter as PCR only applies to travellers coming from Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Chile

Hey Fiscal don't bother. Legally, the PCR applies only for travelers (and technically only for residents/citizens of those countries, not even Argentines residents/citizens) from Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Chile. Unless something changes over the weekend that PCR is useless. You can still present it if you wish.

At least now you know, though!
Was the test supposed to tell you if you have antibodies to or indicate if you currently are infected?
Saw some places that do the tests in BA and it's not clear to me if they are separate or not.
Also can anyone recommend a place for antibody test in BA?

I think you only need the test to avoid the quarantine if you're coming from neighboring countries for tourism reasons.

Other than that you are still required to do 14 days lockup (no one checks)

Also for next time — it doesn’t matter when you get your results. What matters is what day of the sample was taken. Which will be indicated on the certificate of results. So you should have never done the test before Thursday (today) in the first place. Not to sound mean but next time do your research first.

Wait, doesn't this still say I need a COVID test?
