Reciprocity Fee for New Zealanders living in Australia?

Does anyone have accurate, preferably first-hand, information on whether or not New Zealanders who live in Australia have to pay the so-called reciprocity fee when entering Argentina, in this case by taxi/hire car from Brazil at Iguassu?

Only people who enter Argentina by producing either a Canadian, US or Australian passport are obliged by Argentina to pay its reciprocal entry fee. Citizens of New Zealand producing New Zealand passports to Argentine Immigration and Customs upon both entering and later leaving Argentina do not owe it.

Read the New Zealand government's official advice pages for New Zealanders traveling to Argentina for official confirmation of this.

One's citizenship, not his residency, determines whether he owes that fee or not upon entering Argentina.

How on earth would an immigration official know where you live?

Thanks for this, it's just when you google the question, some websites will tell you that you do need a visa.

How does an immigration officer know? Not very likely, but in today's world the information might just pop us on his screen.
