Travellers from the USA, Canada and Australia entering Argentina via any port of entry are required to pay a fee online before travelling and must show proof of payment on arrival. You can pay this on the Provincia NET website. The reciprocity fee is waived for travellers who are in transit for less than 12 hours, have an onward connecting flight and do not leave the international area of the airport (ie do not pass through immigration).
Reciprocity fees for US citizens: US$160; Canadians: US$92; Australians: US$100. For nationals of the USA, this fee covers unlimited entries to Argentina for 10 years. For Australian nationals, the fee allows multiple entries for one year from the date of issue. For Canadian nationals the fee allows multiple entries until one month before the traveller's passport expires.
For nationals requiring a tourist visa, the cost is US$50.
Passengers staying for less than six hours within the airport waiting for connecting international flights do not need to go through immigration control or apply for visas.
Those applying for a temporary visa have to get an entrance permit (permiso de ingreso) from the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones first. When you have the entry permit, you can apply for a temporary residence visa.
Nationals requiring visas are advised to apply at least two months in advance of their trip.
Visa-exempt tourists can apply for a 90-day extension to their visit at the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones.
Single parents/adults travelling alone with children should be aware that Argentina requires evidence that both parents have given permission for the child to enter/leave the country.
