Rest of World Citizen of countries NOT mentioned on this list, it is vital that you check your specific visa requirements before traveling to Argentina. We recommend visiting VisaHQ to stay up-to-date with all the latest visa & passport requirements.

** Note for Travelers from New Zealand, South Africa, and other Latin American countries

Travelers from New Zealand, South Africa, and many other Latin American countries DO NOT REQUIRE A VISA to enter Argentina. However, it is still very important you check with your local consulate or embassy for the most up-to-date visa & passport requirements.

Passport Requirements:

Citizens of ALL countries: To enter Argentina, your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months after your travel dates. For example, if you are traveling to Argentina in March, your passport must be valid through September of that year.

We strongly recommend making copies of your passport. Keep your original passport locked away in the safe of your hotel and carry a photocopy of your passport with you during your travels. You might also consider purchasing a passport holder to keep all your documents safe.

Visa Requirements:

Tourist visas for most countries are NOT REQUIRED for entry into Argentina. Instead, you will receive a visa stamp valid for 90 days upon arrival. However, prior to traveling, it is always a good idea to check with the nearest Embassy for the most up-to-date information.

Note about traveling to the Iguazu Falls:
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 Iguazu Falls (even just for a day trip), you will need to obtain a Brazil tourist visa, and/or a Paraguay tourist visa. For tourist visa information to enter Brazil, please see our Brazil Visa & Passport page.

Vaccination Recommendations: 

We highly recommend visiting the World Health Organization website for the most up-to-date country-specific vaccination requirements.
