The U.S. Department of State issued an updated Level 1 travel advisory for the Argentine Republic on August 18, 2023.

The State Department says visitors should exercise standard precautions when visiting Argentina in 2023, as some areas have increased risk.

For example, the City of Rosario has been issued a Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution advisory.

The State Department says criminal elements are active in Rosario (Santa Fe province), increasing civil unrest.

Additionally, U.S. Embassy personnel are required to give advance notice before traveling to Rosario, which is located about 300 km northwest of Buenos Aires.

In 2022, Statista reported Argentine Patagonia received nearly 3.9 million overnight visitors, with January welcoming about 454 thousand people.

From a health perspective, the U.S. CDC suggests various travel vaccinations, including for dengue outbreaks, when visiting Argentina in 2023.
