RECIPROCITY FEE for Canadian Citizens - Online payment
In order to enter Argentina, the nationals of the following countries must pay a "Reciprocity Fee" in accordance with the following chart.
The payment of this fee is NOT a visa since Argentina does not require visa to citizens of the above mentioned countries when traveling for tourism purposes.
The Argentine Government set this entry fee on equal amounts to the fees Argentine citizens must pay when requesting a visa to travel to those countries.
