Entry & Exit Requirements
U.S. and Canadian citizens must have a valid passport to enter Argentina. Passports must be valid for at least six months after the date of entry.
A visa is not required for visits up to 90 days. However, U.S. and Canadian citizens are required to pay a reciprocal entry fee prior to entry into Argentina. 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).
If you are not traveling with a U.S. passport, please check with the Argentine Embassy 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.
Some physicians recommend that travelers get hepatitis A and typhoid vaccines before visiting Argentina.
Please consult your physician for additional information and recommendations based on your individual circumstances.
Locally transmitted cases of Zika virus have been reported in Argentina. Local transmission means that mosquitoes in the area have been infected with Zika and are spreading it to people. The CDC recommends that travelers to Argentina protect themselves from mosquito bites. As a precaution, the CDC advises women who are pregnant to consider postponing travel to any area where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.
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.
