The border crossing by the vehicular bridge that connects Bermejo with Aguas Blancas, on the border between Bolivia and Argentina, was reopened four days ago, after being closed for more than two years due to the pandemic and remodeling work on the infrastructure of control of the Argentine side.

In recent days, the flow of vehicles from the neighboring country has gradually increased.

“As of the 24th of this month, the international bridge between Bermejo and Aguas Blancas was reopened, It is open 24 hours a day, from Monday to Sunday,” the departmental director of Migration, David Bolívar, confirmed to EL DEBER.

The official indicated that private and public transport can now travel through this passage, without the need to turn around Yacuiba – Salvador Mazza or Villazón – La Quiaca, which were previously rehabilitated.

At the same time, the president of the Municipal Council of the White Water Administration, Luis Saiquita, He stated that the reopening of the international bridge benefits the region because at this time there is a high influx of tourists from his country who go to Tarija and Chaguaya.

“There are many Argentines who cross in their vehicles and buses to visit Bolivia because of the devotion and faith they have towards the Virgin of Chaguaya and the Patron Saint of San Roque,” he said.

Bolívar agreed with Saiquita, saying that this benefits tourism in tarija for the two traditional religious festivities that began in the middle of this month.

At this border crossing, it was only enabled by the area of ​​Las Chalanas for the transit of people to cross the Bermejo River.
