The Argentinean government announced on Tuesday morning it will open the country’s borders to welcome tourists from neighboring nations this summer, in a time when Argentina passed 1 million of confirmed COVID-19 infections.

“The national government has taken the decision to open the borders to receive tourists from neighboring countries. In principle, [entry] will be by air, through the Ezeiza [international] airport and by sea through the port of Buenos Aires,” Tourism and Sports Minister Matias Lammens told local reporters during a press conference in capital Buenos Aires.

Lammens, who is known for being the former president of the San Lorenzo football club, pointed out that “the conditions are in place so that tourists can come to Argentina, in this new stage where we have to live with the virus.” He didn’t specify a specific date for the reopening of borders to tourists. Summer vacation season in Argentina normally begins in the second week of December.

“The decision implies an important [amount of] income for our economy and i[t’s] one more stage in this pandemic to turn the page, without abandoning the fight against the virus that has us in full battle,” he added.
