Uruguay stops requiring an online sworn statement to enter the country
The objective of the measure is to boost the entry of international visitors to the different destinations
The Uruguayan government decided to advance to Saturday, August 27, the suppression of the mandatory online sworn statement to enter the country, according to the Minister of Tourism Tabaré Viera in statements made on August 26.
This measure had been implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic. "The health situation today is different and happily we can not require the declaration, but it will be necessary to have the corresponding vaccination," Viera said.
Likewise, he clarified that although the decree nullifies the obligation to submit the online health affidavit, unvaccinated people must submit a PCR with a negative result to enter the country.
The minister also indicated that many tourists had difficulties making the declaration and did so at the border posts, which delayed the transfer of other passengers, especially to the Argentine Republic.
