Reciprocity Fee for US, Canadian and Australian Citizens
There is a reciprocity fee that US, Canadian and Australian Citizens must pay to enter Argentina. The payment of this fee is not a visa since Argentina does not require visa to citizens of the above mentioned countries when traveling for tourism purposes.
The Argentine Government set this entry fee on equal amounts to the fees Argentine citizens must pay when requesting a visa to travel to those countries.
1- Argentine nationals who also bear US, Canadian, or Australian citizenship, and present any of these passports at the Immigration control.
2- Foreign nationals bearing regular US, Canadian, or Australian passports in transit.
3- Foreign nationals bearing regular US, Canadian, or Australian passports who have permanent residence in Argentina.
4- Foreign nationals bearing Canadian passports with a business visa.
5- Foreign nationals bearing official or diplomatic passports from the US, Canada, or Australia.
6- If you are arriving to Argentina by plane, staying less than 12 hours, and will not leave the airport, you do not have to pay the fee.
Those foreign citizens who have already paid the Reciprocity Fee in the past and it is still valid, do NOT have to pay the fee again.
US, Canadian or Australian citizens must pay the Reciprocity Fee before their arrival into Argentina. Print the receipt. Upon arrival in Argentina, this receipt must be presented to immigration officers. The receipt will be scanned by the immigration control officers, who will verify the data and authorize entry to Argentina.
You are not allowed to pay the Reciprocity Fee upon arrival. You must make the payment online before arriving in Argentina.
