Who needs a Visa?
The “visa” is just a big stamp in your passport.
A visa is waived for residents of the following countries: USA, Canada, Australia, New Zeland, and most Western European countries. Upon arrival residents of these countries can stay for 90 days. A new “reciprocity fee” is being charged upon arrival for citizens of several of the countries mentioned above. Be prepared to pay a fee at immigration upon arrival. Many airports also charge a departure tax.
Currently the “reciprocity fee” is the following:
- Canadian citizens: $70, per entry
- Australian citizens: $100, valid for 10 years
- Please check for up-to-date fees and regulations before departure.
You must pay the reciprocity fee on this website. Once paid, you must print out the receipt and present it to the Argentine immigration officer at the time of entry.
Citizens of other countries should contact an Argentine Embassy or Consulat in their country of residence.
- Your passport must be valid 3 months beyond intended stay.
- You must have tickets and documents for return or onward travel.
- We recommend at least 2 blank pages in your passport per country visited.
Visiting Iguazu Falls
You can visit Iguazu Falls from both Argentina and Brazil. U.S. passport holders need a visa ($160) 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.
