Argentina Reciprocity Fee for U.S. and Canadian Citizens
To enter Argentina, citizens of the countries listed below must pay a “reciprocity fee”. The collection of this “reciprocity fee” is NOT A VISA, since Argentina does not require visas to citizens of those nations for tourism or business.
The Argentine government fixed this admission fee in an amount equal to that paid by Argentines applying for Visas to these countries:
U.S.: USD $ 160. – (Multiple entries for 10 years)
Canada: USD $ 75. – (One entry) or USD $ 150. – (Multiple entries for 5 years, from the first entry)
Australia: USD $ 100. – (Multiple entries for 1 year)
UBP recommends that students pay the fee before coming to Argentina on-line, by accessing this site: http://www.migraciones.gov.ar/accesible/templates/reciprocidad/reciprocidad.htm to avoid delays at the airport.
