Reduced flight schedules and current entry / exit requirements

What is the status in this regard? Was this also covered in the DNU extension (until beginning of August I believe)? If so, I guess nobody knows how long this is going to last .... Are there any workarounds (e.g. apply in an Argentinian embassy in Europe for a temporary residence)? Or if I would get a job interview/offer? (in March I met a German tourist [no relation to Argentina whatsoever] who entered the country based on a job interview ... )
Was he being hired to build hydro electric facilities in Northwest Arg? I heard the gov makes some exceptions for this type of person.

No, she came to Argentina based on a job interview / process that was "organised" by the travel agency in Germany. She then spent a couple of weeks in Argentina, travelling to Patagonia etc, before going back ... Obviously there was no real job application process. But this was in March right before the new lockdown was announced. (not that I would recommend anyone to travel to Argentina at the moment with all the restrictions in place, but this is another discussion)

I understood from previous posts from Bajo Cero that Argentina does not consider it "illegal" but instead "irregular" for Argentines to cross in this way. Maybe he can elaborate?

Note that raft crossings etc. are dangerous and people do die trying to cross this border, including children. Not to mention risk of robbery or assault.
It is worth pointing out that foreigners who are caught from time to time do get returned to sender.

If successful in such a crossing, I would personally imagine that this would only cause real headaches beyond just fines for temporary or non residents later wanting to officialise something, like renew or apply for residency or exit the country legally without being given the third degree to identify the UFO they flew in on...
So the short answer - and all I’m willing to share here - is that there are straighter, faster, far less dangerous ways.

What I’m not sure of is the legal angle, for people that are inherently allowed to be present on Argentine soil (e.g. citizens and PR), and for whom the law-breaking is limited to the manner in which they crossed the border.

well united officially cancelled my ticket on the 25th (no surprise really). i guess they updated their system to reflect what was approved.

in any case, the earliest i could get rebooked now is aug 14. there wasn't anything else available to choose from when i called.

How does it work? Do they email you that your flight was cancelled? They don't automatically rebook you? It's up to you to rebook? First come, first served or is there any priority?

I have to fly to work on Saturday, wonder what the chances of me getting back into the country are. I didn’t realise they were actually flying more passengers out than in.

In the case of Delta they didn't send me anything. I just happened to be looking on their app and saw that my return flight to Arg had been cancelled. They did not automatically rebook my flight; I had to call and wait on hold for an hour and fifteen to get it rebooked. I had tried to rebook through the app before calling but that wasn't possible. I think I saw that cancellation on the app shortly after it had happened; otherwise, my return flight might have been delayed even more than three weeks. My wife's flight on American was automatically rebooked. Maybe it depends on the airline.
