Come to the “Land of Silver"

Argentina: "Land of Silver" and the second-largest country in South America (next to Brazil). Its diverse geography includes the fertile plains of the Pampas, the oil-rich plateau of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the subtropical flats of the Gran Chaco and the rugged Andes Mountains along its western border with Chile. Buenos Aires, the capital, is one of the busiest and most elegant cities in the world. It is said to be the essence of all that is Argentina. Our most popular Argentina tours include the destinations you should not miss: Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Bariloche in the Lake District, Iguazu Falls, Mendoza (the center of Argentina’s wine industry), Salta and Aconcagua (highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere).


Be in the know before you go


A valid passport is required to travel and should have at least 6 months’ validity after your return home. You should have at least 2 blank pages per country that you are visiting. If your passport does not meet this requirement at the time of departure, you can be denied boarding for your international flight and may consequently incur additional expenses.

While no visa is required for travel to Argentina, a reciprocity fee must be paid online before attempting entry to Argentina. The fee guarantees each traveler multiple tourist entries to Argentina for tourist stays less than (90) days through the duration of the reciprocity fee’s validity. US citizens must pay 160USD (ten year validity period, multiple entries). Canadian citizens must pay 100CAD (valid for ten years or up to one month prior to expiration of the registered passport, multiple entries). Australian citizens must pay 100USD (one year validity period, multiple entries).

Important Note: Effective March 24, 2016, the reciprocity fee created by the Presidential Decree 1654/2008 and regulated by Disposition DNM 2761/2009, will be suspended for a 90-day period, or until an Executive Order be issued (as promoted by this National Directorate), for the derogation of this fee, as regards the US citizens entering Argentinean territory
