Maybe you can hire a coyote to get you across...

What recourse do we have if a government literally and legally won't permit entry? I know most travel insurance doesn't cover a disinclination to travel due to epidemic or pandemic; however, in this case, I physically am being barred from entry. Thoughts?
Id contact the airline and advocate for a cancellation with full refund, because you don’t seem to have any recourse in this instance if the DUN order goes through today or tomorrow. The problem is an airline might look at the act as something beyond their control, force majeure. Same with insurance. How do they deal with for e majeure issues?Good luck.

Supposed to fly into EZE from the US on April 18th. I have no idea what to do. That's over a month away but I really don't see how anyting can get better in that time.

Posted this in another thread but IATA seems convinced of both the 14-day quarantine and the suspension of flights from many countries including the USA (https://www.iata.org/en/programs/saf...ch=&country=AR):

Declared risk zones: EU member states, Schengen, UK and North Ireland, USA, Korea (Rep.), Japan, China and Iran. All flights from declared risk zones are suspended for 30 days as of 17 March, with the exemption of Aerolineas Argentinas. Crew with no symptoms are authorized to return. Passengers traveling or transiting from China, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Japan, Spain, Korea (Rep.), or USA, will be subject to 14 day quarantine - crew are exempt. Passengers traveling from affected countries may land on a separate platform and have to sign an affidavid saying they have not felt any symptoms prior to arrival.
Even though I can't find anything on the government's website confirming this, we've decided to cancel an entire South American trip which included Argentina.

I can vouch the USA and France are in the list of banned countries. The USA, because a friend from Buenos Aires happened to be in NYC and managed to get into one of the last flights to Ezeiza before the lockdown. France -- I was supposed to go back to BA in a few weeks for work and ended up cancelling because of this mess. I was looking forward to seeing some friends and fetching some books I left at home, but oh well, Amazon will have to do.

Stay safe and wash your hands everyone

If anybody has any personal anecdotal information about entering AR since the lockdown, we'd like to hear about it. We travelled to UY for the first leg of our trip last week, and had planned to take the ferry to BA from here. We've delayed the ferry, and are assessing what to do next. The information about the terms of mandatory isolation are somewhat vague as far as we've found, with some information seemingly suggesting that there's some form of screening, which if passed, might allow for more flexibility in moving around. I understand all the warnings and such, just looking for some data points in order to make our own assessment.
Anyhow, again, looking for **personal, anecdotal information, specifically about entry by ferry**.

Thanks!

BTW, the Argentine president issued a ban on Thursday on all flights coming form the most affected countries which include the US. So this not a decision by the airlines and none of them had a choice but to cancel the flights, not just AA.
