Prior to each term, the Program Managers in Buenos Aires arrange a virtual pre-departure meeting with the next term’s cohort of study abroad students. In addition to logistical program information, region-specific topics of health, safety, and security are discussed. This information is reiterated upon arrival in Buenos Aires, and students are given emergency phone numbers for program staff, as well as Harvard Travel Assist (Harvard’s international emergency service). Program participants are required to have international health insurance. Harvard students are required to register in the Harvard Travel Registry for the duration of their international travel (non-Harvard students should follow their home university policies for travel registration).
