Argentina Tourist Visa Requirements
Tourist visas are not required for entry into Argentina; you will receive a visa stamp valid for 90 days upon arrival. However, citizens of Canada and Australia must pay a reciprocity fee online, before arriving in Argentina. This is required for all entry points into Argentina.
As of March 24, 2016, Argentina has suspended the reciprocity fee required for U.S. citizens entering the country. This change is valid for at least the next three months. There is speculation that after the three months, an executive order could extend the suspended reciprocity fee indefinitely. Prior to traveling, please check with your Embassy for the most up-to-date information.

Note about traveling to the Iguazu Falls: The Iguazu Falls lies on the border between Argentina and Brazil, and the border with Paraguay is very close by. If you want to enter Brazil or Paraguay to explore the area around the Iguazu Falls (even just for a day trip), you will need to obtain a Brazil tourist visa, which can take several weeks or a few months, and/or a Paraguay tourist visa. For the tourist visa into Brazil, please see our Brazil travel info page.
