In short... As fully vaccinated person you can do everything. Masks must be used in all closed places and where much peoples are together in open spaces. About 70-80% of people are wearing masks in open space (at least in regions I was recently)

Thanks obddjwvikqji - v helpful!
Does anyone have suggestions for getting a local sim card without a DNI? I bought a Movistar chip, but have been unable to get in contact with Movistar to activate it since I don't have a DNI. I read that Claro has a prepaid chip for tourists, is this true? It might be the best option, but it looks like Movistar has more 4G coverage based on a coverage map in Patagonia so it would be nice to have that if possible
I did this today actually. I went to the Claro store with my passport and they gave me a SIM and activated for free. Then you add money at any Kiosco. It was 350 pesos for 2GB.
I'm using Google Fi and it works wonderfully
Same as mannyg, I went to a Claro store with my passport.
What was the problem with WU exactly? MoneyGram is an alternative, but lower rate. I also recently met someone who got 1USD=200peso rate on the street
tom13d
I spent good 20 mins at the counter, the guy was calling their support, trying his best to assist. Basically the system didnt let him give me the cash unless I have provided a โ€œnum cuil para extranjerosโ€ (which is something I cannot get with visitor visa afaik). Then he suggested that I send money so someone else - not an option either as I arrived yesterday and dont know anyone.

Anyway, I finally managed to get some cash via Xoom. What a mission btw! Seems like many branches here dont have much cash.
you could get to a cueva but the fee starts at 250usd
tom13d
ok, good to know. I just went for Xoom even thought the exchange rate is not as good as at WU
tom13d
anybody knows where to get tickets to watch Argentina vs. Colombia World Cup Qualifier in Feb? I only found them online at viagogo resellers but nothing official
jk13d
lsgzvsjvd - did you ever come across this issue with WU?

Maybe itโ€™s dependent upon the WU kiosk you go to - some are more helpful than others?
There are rumors that they're planning on moving the match to Cordoba. So not sure the location is final yet.
inga13d
nuyijlvnmdqc thanks so much!
Hi, no date for tickets yet. It is almost confirmed that the match is played in Cordoba, on Feb 1st. The last matches the tickets were obtained in "Autoentrada". The last game was in San Juan and you could also get it in person at the stadium (it was chaos).
I would suggest trying another WU branch - I picked up cash at a WU yesterday with just a copy of my passport. Unless it has something to do with specific passport / visa, I have a US passport and don't need a visa.
Thanks guys, to anyone wondering, I was able to activate a Claro chip by filling out a form online. There is no Claro store here in El Calafate, so that wasn't an option to go in person.

I tried to post a link but am not allowed since my account is new. But if you search you can find it on Claro's website
wiew never had this problem. Sometimes it doesn't work, sometimes they don't have the money. But never something like this that Tom described
๐Ÿ›ฌ girlcvguhvesa just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
tom12d
qdjokrwrrv I am on EU passport, no need for visa either. I tried 4 different branches.

<@U02H9FYCJS0> you are right, finding a branch that has the cash is also a mission!

Anyway, someone on FB recommended Remitly - apparently you can get the same or even better rate than WU
tom12d
oh no, I dont think I would fly to Cordoba because if it. Thanks guys!
how about some drinks tomorrow, I'm in Palermo, Plaza Armenia
depends on how much money you want. After my first experience, I try to stay below โ‚ฌ250
I've sent myself $500 twice with just a passport as ID, never gave me trouble other than needing to go to bigger WU places rather than kiosks
< $250 should be fine at small kiosks, but you probably should go to ones that look like they can handle the transaction. And probably plan ahead, dont expect to make large withdrawls at places like Ushuaia
tom11d
there is a meetup tomorrow in Palermo
๐Ÿ›ฌ nxlbstbwzjc just arrived in San Carlos de Bariloche, #argentina
๐Ÿ›ฌ qhkofxxdqqok just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
sounds like a good plan ๐Ÿป
what companies would you guys recommend to rent a car in CABA? is there anything like Turo () in Argentina? ๐Ÿค”
How are the covid restrictions? Looks like cases are way up but hospitalizations/deaths are not. Does it seem like the government is going to put more rules in place or does it seem like they are going to just focus on the booster rollout?
As far as I understand from official page, people here have the "cuidar" app, where they have vac. certs. registered and they get a message as soon they can go to take the booster.
Without a local ID (DNI) you can not register via this app anyway.

But who knows, there is some other way to get....

Uruguay has some program for tourists getting the booster. must stay there some days and you can get only 6 months after second dose. (read this about 3 weeks ago)
is this happening at the Temple Craft Hollywood? and are u lfsbggtdhh efoni going?
the meetup is full (waiting list) ๐Ÿค”
tom10d
it is at Distro Federal actually
tom10d
I will DM you the link for the whatsapp group - apparently they cannot let in people who are not registered

you will notice right away that almost everybody in the streets is wearing a facemask. I would say maybe 85 % here in Palermo, BA where I am staying. Having said, the bars and restaurants are packed and no one checks anything.

I'd also like to know this. Any luck with finding this information U0145AAUCH3?
๐Ÿ›ฌ ycghwkxfbueox just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
Dear nd's, is it hard to find an airbnb less than 800dollars in palermo? Or any recommendation to rent an apt?
Well, depends on the amenities you want and how long you plan to stay. But for sure youโ€™ll find nice and convenient Airbnbs. Last year (before moving to Europe) I rented through Alternativa Propiedades because most of the rent values were expressed in Argentinian Presos so it was way cheaper than Airbnb.
๐Ÿ›ฌ qdeftanjfxozpvcnsxnhjwn just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
Oh, then I must try that! Thank you so much โ˜บ๏ธ
yeah it really depends on your way of living...but I did stay at an Airbnb that had a nice balcony, was at Palermo, 1 bedroom for ~500usd a month
Just giving a +1 to not having much trouble finding < $800 USD apartments if you stay for longer periods of time, especially with month discounts
Looks like Palermo was affected and thatโ€™s where most nomads stay
did anyone notice this in their apartments / coworkings?
some did, my place's all good
back in Palermo Chico
but from what they write in news, that's probably not last time happening during hot/AC season. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey all. Looks like I missed the recent Meetup.com|Meetup.com drinks for January

If thereโ€™s any more events coming up - Iโ€™d be keen to join
Every thursday.. check the meetup group

Thanks for the heads up! prayskin-tone-2 Had missed that.
anyone know if I need a PCR test when crossing Argentina/Chile border by land? Thinking of visiting Patagonia and hopping between both sides of the border.
Hi Alex! waveskin-tone-3 I'd like to hear the answers regarding this, since I'm planning to cross this border by car in the end of February (Mendoza > Santiago)
I was in a store when it cut, but it was less than a minute, at least in that area. Internet in my area was down for about a day and a half also
I talked to a few locals before going and it ended up being just a passport, vaccine card, and a declaration of health (found online).
ok, good to know. Thanks!
The borders by land are still closed. I'm in Bariloche and I wanted to cross to Chile, still it's not possible. Just by flight
that's too bad, thanks for the info U01DEQPJG76!
check the link that I sent you. For some reason I can't post it in this channel. Basically it says that there are some places where you can cross by car. Still, be sure before trying it. And let me know if you can get it ๐Ÿ™‚
For posterity, the twitter handle is deodwjtjwlxdneg
Good lord, a day and a half with no internet and youโ€™re an SRE? How did you get any work done?
Did the mobile internet cut out too or was it possible to tether?
where I stay (Palermo Chico) it was about 4hr. plus cable internet was down another hour after that. Claro Mobile worked through all the time.
I am planning to stay for a month in Argentina (BA for a couple of week and another place rest of the time). How is the situation there?
The host of where Im staying apparently uses a different ISP for a different set of apartments in the same building for....whatever reason
I tethered for a few hours until I noticed it wasnt going to come back up
you are welcome izez and frbqoz just correcting. As numbers grow much more since 11 days ago, i would say that now 90% are using everywhere, except some....
Has anyone flown into Bariloche recently? What kind of documents did you have to show? It looks like you need a Certificado รšnico Habilitante para Circulaciรณn - Emergencia COVID-19 on the Cuidar app, as well as some other things according to the Aerolineas Argentinas website
If you are in BA, they don't ask for absolutely anything. Just went a week ago
I'm in Bariloche, if you are coming from inside Argentina they don't ask for anything
Hey anybody knows what are they asking if you go to Buenos Aires from outside Argentina?
I think you need the vaccine and to fill out a form too, but immigration didnt ask me for anything it was only the airline. Also insurance that covers covid. This was a few weeks ago when I arrived
sdtzjwp is proposing a nomadlist.com/meetups#8cee1f80da3b061c761491ef6656112f|meetup in Buenos Aires, #argentina at www.google.com/maps/search/Any, Any, Buenos Aires|Any> on Wednesday, 19 January at 20:00. ```Crypto and other stuff```
anyone in Rosario?
How many days of insurance for covid do I need to buy? I mean, only for passing the imigration ๐Ÿ˜Œ
the immigration officer didnt ask me anything about it, only the airline, and they didnt even ask for proof, just asked if i had it and I said yes. So I would think that as long as you can show them that you are covered when you arrive it will be fine, but I guess if you wanted to be as safe as possible it would cover the whole trip
SafetyWing covers it for example and probably alot of travel insurances do
Thanks bro! It seems not that tricky! I just bought one for 1month. Hope this works! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Has anyone entered Argentina with proof of recovery? I can get an EU Recovery Certificate. I think they also need a doctors note?

Edit do I need to make a separate doctorโ€™s appointment?
Those who have been infected in the last 90 days prior to admission must present a positive PCR and medical discharge, after at least 10 days have elapsed since the PCR was taken.
Right but whatโ€™s a medical discharge in this context? Most people just stay at home and quarantine. I know what the website says Iโ€™m asking if people are making doctors appointments for this.
Makes sense, thanks!
We got in a few weeks ago with safety wing for one month :)

Do a quick search in Facebook market, they may vary from 280 - 600 USD, depends on the amenities. At least on CABA
Just wondering if anyone has any leads on where to go to get a โ€œtouristโ€ SIM card- just arrived in BA and couldnโ€™t get one at the airport - the Personal kiosk seems to be goneโ€ฆ..asked and they said no one sells them there anymoreโ€ฆ. BTW Iโ€™m in Recoleta
Any official Claro store (i.e. not kiosks) give them to you for free, just need your passport
