Business Travel Logue Resource Guide – Buenos Aires, Argentina
So you’re going to Buenos Aires for work and you’re not sure what to expect? Here are some tips.
From most international destinations, you’ll be flying in to Ministro Pistarini International Airport, otherwise known as Ezeiza Airport. The airport is about an hour and a half from downtown Buenos Aires, so don’t be surprised if it takes a while.
Before you leave, check the health info at the CDC Page and check with your travel doctor for any vaccinations you may need and updated health information. The yellow fever vaccination isn’t required for travel in Argentina, but it may be if you visit other countries in South America. Some areas of Argentina have some degree of malaria risk, so if you’re traveling outside of Buenos Aires you may need to get the medication.
The currency is the Argentine peso, you can check conversion rates here.
