Argentina Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Dec 31, 2001

Following the resignation of the president and the installation of an interim administration, the government of Argentina lifted the state of siege it had imposed on December 19. Political and economic uncertainty had contributed to sometimes violent demonstrations. While public security has been largely restored, the government has called general elections for March 3, and the political, social and security situation is likely to remain fluid throughout the campaign period.

The Department of State urges U.S. citizens considering travel to Argentina or already present there to monitor media reports for current information on developing situations and to avoid any areas where large groups have gathered. Security information may also be obtained by contacting the U.S. Embassy at tel. (011) (54) (11) 5777-4533/34, or by e-mail at Americans traveling or resident in the country should avoid large public gatherings, as sporadic demonstrations or riots could pose a risk to those who may be in the wrong place at the wrong time. There have been no reports of injuries to U.S. citizens, and demonstrations and looting have not been specifically aimed at foreign visitors or residents. Travelers should be aware that public disorder may also affect medical services, access to banking and ATM machines, as well as to airline and other public transportation, and possibly limit free movement. In addition, Argentine government economic regulations and local bank cash shortages occasionally limit a traveler's ability to withdraw funds from ATM machines.

For further information concerning travel to Argentina, travelers should consult the Department of State's Internet web site at http://travel.state.gov, which includes the latest Consular Information Sheet for Argentina.
