why not use the italian passport in both countries? then no fees at all....
I see you've asked much the same on the argentina forum. I don't see how your Oz passport comes in to it at all?
I've never known a plane ticket to have any connection to a passport. Simply use your Italian passport unless there is a reason not to, eg it still shows you as being in Oz.
The only place you need to show your Australian passport is at check in for your first international flight to Argentina. It is just to show how you are entering Argentina and that you will not need to pay the fee. After that you put the Australian passport away safely, take out the Italian one and use that to enter/leave both Argentina and Chile. You don't need the Australian one again until you return to Australia. Immigration only wants to see a valid passport when you enter the country. They aren't interested in where you reside, where you were born or whether you have a second nationality. They just want to see a valid passport which doesn't expire in under 6 months.
Hi! thank you guys.. We are concerned because Yesterday we talk with the airline and they said that they charge normally the fee on the airplane and if the system says that my BF is Australian he should pay then, even if he has an italian passport. I asked her if we could put the italian details then on the ticket, she said that they will send all the details to Australian and Argentina customs and if they don't match we are going to be in troubles.
We thought that maybe we are force to pay the fee then.
I don't see how they could charge you on the airplane. Each individual must fill in their data online, pay the fee online and print out the receipt. That would be impossible on an airplane.
At check-in say you are entering Argentina with an Italian passport and show it.
What airline is it?
does anyone know if you have to pay the Chilean fee if im only in the country for transit reasons.
If your luggage is checked all the way through and you remain in the transit lounge on an international to international connection, you do not have to pay the fee.
