Entry & Exit Requirements
U.S. and Canadian citizens must have a valid passport to enter Argentina and Chile. Passports must be valid for at least six months after the date of entry.
Neither country requires a visa for visits up to 90 days.
The Argentina reciprocity fee has been temporarily suspended for U.S. citizens until further notice. Canadian citizens are still responsible for paying this fee online prior to arrival. The entry fee can only be paid online, with a credit card, at one of two websites (www.migraciones.gov.ar or at www.provinciapagos.com.ar).
A tourist card is required for anyone entering Chile from the United States and is issued upon arrival. This card allows visitors to stay for up to 90 days and will allow multiple entries. Keep the tourist card with your passport; it is important not to lose it, as you must present the card to Customs when you leave the country
If you are not traveling with a U.S. passport, please check with the Argentine and Chilean embassies for the requirements based on your nationality.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends that all travelers be up to date on routine vaccinations such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccine, varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, and your yearly flu shot before every trip.
There are no vaccinations required for entry into Argentina or Chile.
Some physicians recommend that travelers get hepatitis A and typhoid vaccines before visiting Argentina and Chile.
Please consult your physician for additional information and recommendations based on your individual circumstances.
The effects of the sun can be damaging to the eyes and skin. Spending time outdoors exposes you to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, even on cloudy days. To protect yourself from the sun, use a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15, protect skin with clothing, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, and drink plenty of fluids.
