COVID-19 Entry Requirements:

As of September 30, 2022, the following measures stand. 

While all staff and guests aboard the Ocean Victory are required to be vaccinated, Argentina is no longer requiring vaccination or a negative test to enter the country.  

The crew and staff are ready to invite you. You will need to present your proof of vaccination at embarkation. 

Guests presenting with symptoms at boarding may be required to undergo a compulsory PCR test by the ship's crew prior to boarding. If positive, these guests will be denied boarding.  

Antigen and PCR testing are available to guests by request. The cost is $45 for an antigen test, and $75 for a PCR test. These are chargeable to your ship account. 

In public spaces, wearing a face mask is optional. 

Conditions and requirements are subject to change. These may change without notice due to factors including, but not limited to, border entry conditions, health orders, and regional health advice. The orders of our ship's captain and doctor are final.
