The possibility of vaccinating tourists who stay for 21 days is also under discussion. The Tourism Minister is planning the opening of borders for tourists and commented: “The first option, because we have to continue taking care of the health status that we have achieved, which has implied an enormous effort and sacrifice of all Uruguayans, would be to accept vaccinated foreigners … Surely, in 45-60 days we will not have more Uruguayans to vaccinate , and we are going to have stock of vaccines “ Hinting at the option of offering tourists who arrive and who are not vaccinated, they can do so but after immunizing all Uruguayans. “Fundamentally, to allocate them to people who arrive from Argentina and Brazil, who are much more behind schedule than Uruguay” in terms of vaccination. “Giving them the possibility to vaccinate them and spend 21 days in the country is a possibility to analyze,” he said.
He also remarked that today they cannot affirm a day for the opening of borders, but that we will have news shortly.
