I appreciate it but I am vaccinated, it just looks wrong to me.
The US is not the only country handling it that way. Many EU countries are handling it exactly the same way. This is not March 2020. People who stayed or traveled back to Argentina knew what they were getting into...

Do you think that by September we should be back to normal flight schedules like before? I'm really feeling tired of this situation, I feel I need to get out of this country for 2 or 3 months.
I think it'll be like last year. December opening for domestic vacation season.

There is a long, easy-to-cross border with Bolivia, problem is that you likely won’t be able to fly out from there if you didn’t enter legally.
This is the minor problem you might have. The border with Bolivia is the far west: drug trafficking, human trafficking, trafficking is the local industry at Salta. Plus add that there is a disaster with Covid at Salta and Bolivia (no doctors, no IC beds, no O2). Add to all these that the border is patrolled by Gendarmeria Nacional that are the local rangers.

From what I know this sounds scarier than it is, true as it may be.
Comparisons to the Wild West notwithstanding, the border is crossed by people and “stuff” (mind-altering and otherwise) on a daily basis.
The problem is that without having entered legally there’s no way you’re flying out of Bolivia - or most other countries for that matter.
You’re not Carlos Ghosn.

Message to U.S. Citizens: U.S. Embassy Buenos Aires (May 26, 2021)
Event:
U.S. citizens may directly return to the United States with certain expired U.S. passports.

If you are overseas and your passport expired on or after January 1, 2020, you may be able to use your expired passport to return directly to the United States until December 31, 2021.
You qualify for this exception if all the following are true:
· You are a U.S. citizen.
· You are currently abroad seeking direct return to the United States.
· You are flying directly to the United States, a United States territory, or have only short-term transit (“connecting flights”) through a foreign country on your direct return to the United States or to a United States Territory.
· Your expired passport was originally valid for 10 years. Or, if you were 15 years of age or younger when the passport was issued, your expired passport was valid for 5 years.

You do not qualify for this exception if:

Please be advised that currently, routine passport processing in the United States can take 10-12 weeks.

I just got my PCR results back for upcoming flight. The result is negative. But my PCR report just has a few lines. It has the name of the lab, the type of test and negative result, then a signature plus date and time. A friend has a "viaje" pcr report. It has the negative result, plus her passport number, plus a few other worthless lines of spanish medical code.

Question: anyone flying out with a barebones pcr report like mine? Or do I need to visit the lab again and get a "viaje?"

Thanks.
