We can't wait to be with you in Buenos Aires in March!!!
We hope and believe that by 2023 the pandemic will be endemic and not pose significant difficulties to holding or participating in BA. Tango Evolution. Sebastian and Mira were both in Buenos Aires in early 2022 and already milongas were full and tango life was continuing as usual in Buenos Aires.
While we acknowledge that the pandemic still poses significant risk to many individuals, we also believe that dance, touch and contact are very important. If you are uncomfortable with the risk of Covid exposure or infection which international travel and a dance program entails, then please hold off joining us until you are comfortable with the situation.
We will follow Argentina's health protocols (and update if needed):
The borders of Argentina are open all to travelers with no quarantine requirement
There are high vaccination levels in Argentina and Buenos Aires
Vaccination and appropriate booster recommended
Our aim will be for the program to continue even if someone in the group or team of dancers was exposed or tested positive. We do not plan to require self-isolation.
By registering, you agree to assume all health risks.
Current Requirements to Enter Argentina
Valid passport (with visa if required by your country)
Simple Argentina entrance online form submitted within 48 hours of travel
Health or travel insurance covering Covid while in Argentina (no specific amount required, easy and cheap to obtain via online travel insurance companies)
By registering you agree that you can fulfill these requirements, including the requirement to show health insurance.
50% program balance due January 10, 2023.
Remaining 50% due in USD in cash upon arrival in Buenos Aires.
Covid Refund Policy
We will offer you a full refund of 2023 deposit and advance payments if and only if you are unable to attend BA. Tango Evolution 2023 by force majeure because the borders of your country or region close due to the pandemic and prevent you from traveling. Please take extra care of yourself prior to the program. Contacting Covid before the program and therefore not being able to travel will not qualify for a refund.
We will not be able to offer refunds once you have arrived in Argentina and the program has begun, including if you chose to self-isolate due to Covid concerns or because you have tested positive or developed symptoms.
Standard Deposit Refund Policy
For cancellations for any reason that do not qualify for our Covid Refund Policy (above), our standard deposit refund policy applies to 2023 deposits. (2020 deposits on hold will continue to be held as credit towards a future program.)
Some flights have changed since the pandemic. Please verify that you will be able to find and purchase appropriate flights for your travel needs.
Thank you for understanding! Registration deposits and these policies make it possible for us to run these programs.
