USA Passport Holders are required to pay a $US160 entry fee online prior to entering Argentina. At the present time, the only exception is cruise passengers arriving at the cruise terminal. After July 1, 2013 then the fee will apply to cruise passengers,also.

The fee is paid online at the Argentine website. Airlines will not allow you to board your flight without proof of payment.

Departure fees are included in your airline ticket.

Jocko,

AS OF JANUARY 7, 2013 pre-paid on-line reciprocity fees before departure and arrival will be payable for all entries into Argentina for Americans, Australian or Canadians, whether by land , sea, or flight.

The single exception is an extension until July 1 for cruise ship passengers.

Bruno,

Argentina has announced their intention to stop collecting reciprocity fees at airports. If it hasn't already begun, at some point in the near future all fees must be paid in advance on line.

Also, the amount paid depends upon the amount charged by your country for visas for residents of Argentina. That amount is currently US160 for residents of the United States. The amount for residents of other countries varies.

Canadians currently pay US75 for one time entry or unlimited entry of US150.

PLEASE NOTE - ESPECIALLY THE LAST PARAGRAPH: you must pay in advance - you cannot - repeat - CAN NOT - pay the fee at the airport -

Any passengers visiting Argentina with an American, Canadian or Australian passport will be required to pay - - in advance -- the Reciprocity Fee/Immigration Tax online at the following site: https:/….

Passengers must register and pay with a credit card. Once the payment is received, an electronic receipt will be provided, passengers must present their proof of payment upon arrival into Argentina.

Any passengers scheduled to arrive in to Jorge Newbery Airport (AEP) on or after the 1st November 2012 or Ezeiza Airport (EZE) on or after the 29th December 2012 MUST have the electronic receipt with them or they will be denied entry and returned to their departure city.

The provincia pagos website is not currently working which means you can't pay online in advance. Argentines are aware of this but it has been down for at least a week. They extended the ability to pay on arrival until yesterday, January 7, but the site is still not working today January 8. Anyone know what's happening on the ground on arrival? They can't be sending people back in droves.
