Argentina Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

Jul 01, 2002

The Department of State continues to urge U.S. citizens to monitor developing situations in Argentina and to avoid large gatherings. A demonstration in late June turned violent, and two Argentine citizens were killed and many injured. This Public Announcement supersedes the Public Announcement of May 29, 2002, and it expires on October 31, 2002.

The security situation is fluid during the ongoing Argentine economic crisis, and public demonstrations are common. While usually non-violent, a demonstration in late June turned violent, two Argentine citizens were killed and dozens were injured. There have been no reports of injuries to U.S. citizens related to the crisis. Financial sector difficulties and trade restrictions may occasionally affect access to banking and Automated Teller Machines (ATMs). ATMs in Argentina accept most U.S. ATM cards, but will dispense only Argentine pesos.

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 areas where large groups have gathered. To obtain updated security information, please contact the U.S. Embassy by calling (011) (54) (11) 5777-4533/34, or via e-mail at For further general information regarding travel to Argentina, travelers should consult the Department of State Internet site at http://travel.state.gov, which includes the latest Consular Information Sheet for Argentina.
