Visiting Iguazu Falls
You can visit Iguazu Falls from both Argentina and Brazil. U.S. passport holders need a visa to enter Brazil, and they are NOT available at the border. EU passport holders do not need a visa to enter Brazil.
There may be lines on either side of the border, depending on the time of the day and holidays.
Also check regarding immunization requirements. Australian residents, for example, require yellow fever shots if returning to Australia within 6 days following a visit to Brazil.
