Reciprocity fee for US citizens

U.S. citizens visiting Argentina for tourism or business must pay a "reciprocity fee" of US$ 160. This "reciprocity fee" is not a visa, given that U.S. citizens do not require a visa when visiting Argentina. This amount is equivalent to what Argentines must pay when requesting a visa to enter the United States.

 

Form of Payment

1. To pay the reciprocity fee, please click on the following link: http://www.migraciones.gov.ar/accesible/templates/reciprocidad/reciprocidad.htm
You must make this payment online before arriving in Argentina, as it is the only way to comply with this requirement.

2. Register and fill out the form with your personal data and credit card information (Visa, American Express or Master Card are accepted). The National Directorate of Immigration in Argentina will receive this information electronically.

3. Print the receipt. This receipt will be valid immediately, as soon as payment is made. A copy of the receipt is also automatically sent  to your e-mail account. In case you do not find it in the Inbox, please check the Spam as well.
4. Upon arrival in Argentina, this receipt must be presented to immigration officers.
5. The receipt will be scanned by the immigration control officers, who will verify the data and authorize entry to Argentina.
6. The fee is valid for 10 years from the date of payment, and for multiple entries for U.S. citizens

7. If you require further information, please send an e-mail to consular@embassyofargentina.us or call BAPro Pagos help desk: +54 11 5080-3030 Monday-Friday between 8 AM and 8 PM UTC-3
