The objective was to evaluate the cross-cultural measurement invariance of the Fear of COVID-19 Scale (FCV-19S) in 7 Latin American countries (Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay). The participants were 2944 people, selected through non-probability sampling for convenience, where the majority were women . Data collection occurred between 12 June and 14 September 2020 . The results indicated that the model with two related factors presents a better fit to the data and has partial scalar invariance among the 7 countries . Differences in emotional and physiological reactions were observed between the countries.
