Uruguay's Ministry of Tourism is planning to first allow in only foreigners who have taken a full coronavirus vaccination scheme, regardless of its brand, as the gradual reopening of borders seems imminent.

 In order to boost tourism in the next summer season, Uruguayan authorities are considering that the first group of foreigners to be allowed in will be those who own property in the country and then all travelers who are completely inoculated with any known coronavirus vaccine.

According to the Montevideo newspaper El Observador, the reopening of borders will happen sometime in September. “First to enter will be those who have properties in Uruguay and are fully immunized with any vaccine - that is, they have both doses and 14 days have passed since the second application.“

In a following step of the gradual reopening, ”all foreigners will be welcomed, regardless of their nationality but who are vaccinated,“ El Observador quoted Tourism Undersecretary Remo Monzegllio as saying.

Tourism Minister Germán Cardoso then explained that the third and final stage will be ”vaccine tourism,” which is expected to occur closer to the summer season. It is about enabling entry to any tourist, regardless of whether they are vaccinated, who will be able to receive their full treatment during their stay in the country.

Last week, President Luis Lacalle Pou said in a TV interview with that enntry to the first group was being eyed for the spring. Still, vaccination of all Uruguayans remains a priority.
So far, 64.73% of Uruguayans have received the two doses, while while 9.46% have only taken the first shot of the coronavirus vaccine, according to Our World in Data.

    Jus get ill on Covid, and spread it to your circle, family and friends.
    That may teach you a lesson, unless you succumb quickly.

    You're welcome.

    earsup, have you written to the MSP askng for specific scientific proof that “the virus” exists, is pathogenic and contagious, only to have them tacitly admit they have no such proof (by not providing it and vaguely referring to pubmed)? I didn't think so. I have. Have you been informed about the content and risks of your “vaccine?” I know the answer: no. Were you informed that by getting “the vaccine” you are actually participating in a medical experiment? Of course not. Are you aware of the spike of deaths in Uruguay following the introduction of “the vaccines?” OK, by now you have your fingers in your ears and are yelling “NANANANANANA” at the top of your lungs, but for anyone else who's curious, have a look:
