Argentina Suspends $160 Reciprocity Fee for U.S. Citizens

Exciting News, Argentina has suspended the $160 USD Reciprocity Fee for U.S. Citizens entering the country.

reciprocity-fee-suspended Argentina is an even more enticing travel destination! As of March 24th, 2016, Argentina has suspended the reciprocity fee required for U.S. citizens entering the country for less than 90 days – for at least the next three months. This change follows President Obama’s visit to Buenos Aires earlier this month. There is speculation that after the three months, an executive order could extend the reciprocity fee waiver indefinitely. The Embassy of Argentina stated the following:

“In order to strengthen the relationship between Argentina and the United States of America, the Argentine Government has resolved to suspend the collection of the reciprocity fee from US passport holders who visit our country for less than 90 days, for tourist or business purposes.” – Buenos Aires, March 24, 2016.

If the spectacular city of Buenos Aires or the mighty Iguassu Falls didn’t have you convinced, then the $160 USD travel savings should be reason enough to visit Argentina. As it stands, Argentina is already an affordable destination for people traveling with U.S. dollars. According to Travel + Leisure, it ranks as one of the Top 2016 Destinations Where Your Dollar Will Go Far. Argentina isn’t the only South America country that has waived travel fees.  Brazil has also passed a temporary visa waiver program for citizens from the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan, going to Brazil during the Olympic games from June 1, 2016 – September 18, 2016.
