Passports and Visas
To enter Argentina, a valid passport is required. The passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the date of departure from Argentina, and must have at least one page available for entry stamp.
As of July 1, 2017, US, EU, and Australian citizens do not require a visa to enter the country for visits of up to 90 days.
Citizens of Canada (and other countries that charge Argentine citizens for a visa or entry fee) are required to pay a reciprocal fee, equal to the amount that those countries charge Argentine residents. The current fees are: $100USD (valid for 10 years, multiple entries, or until one month prior to the expiration date of the passport). Note that this entry fee MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE at the Argentine migrations website. Here you can register, pay the reciprocal fee with your credit card, and print out a receipt. You must bring this receipt with you when you enter the country to prove payment. Travellers who have not paid the required reciprocity fee prior to arrival at an Argentine port of entry may be sent back to their port of embarcation.
We strongly suggest that you check with your appropriate State Department, consulate, embassy, and/or the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs website before traveling to Argentina, as these policies are subject to change.
