FAQ's

I was born in Argentina. Do I still need to apply for the Tourism Fee If I travel with a foreign passport?

If you were born in Argentina, even if you are a US, Canadian or Australian passport holder, you are not required to apply for the Tourism Fee. Your passport must state you were born in Argentina.

 

Are Visas required to visit Argentina?

US, Canadian and Australian citizens need to pay a “Tourism Fee” to visit Argentina. This is not considered a traditional visa, since visas are not required for businesses and tourist visitors (US, Canada and Australia).
