Change in Reciprocity Fee payment method for American, Canadian and Australian passengers

Change in Reciprocity Fee payment method for American, Canadian and Australian passengers

Please be advised of an important change to the Reciprocity Fee’s policy for American, Canadian and Australian passport holders visiting Argentina.

Starting on November 1st , 2012, any passenger visiting Argentina with an American, Canadian or Australian passport will be required to pay in advance the Reciprocity Fee via online.

The new system will work parallel to the regular collection service performed at Ezeiza Airport until December 28th, 2012 and at Jorge Newbery Airport until October 31st, 2012. After the dates previously mentioned, the only method of collection would be online.

American, Canadian and Australian passport holders visiting Argentina will be required to pay the reciprocity fee online at the following site: https://virtual.provinciapagos.com.ar/ArgentineTaxes/. They must register and pay with a credit card, the fee is $160 USD. Once the payment is received, an electronic receipt will be given and passenger would need to show it upon their arrival in Argentina.

The lack of such proof of payment will generate the denial of entry of the passenger and consequent returning to their departure city by the airline. We strongly urge passengers to take the necessary precautions so that those passengers who travel to the mentioned airports with a scheduled arrival starting on November 1st, 2012 (Jorge Newbery) and December 29th, 2012 (Ezeiza) have the electronic receipt with them.

Gradually, over the course of this year, control devices such as biometrics machines will be installed in all of the airports which operate international flights.

This fee is a Government Fee and has nothing to do with LATAM Airlines Group. Passengers will need to check these web sites if they have any questions and/or need to request a refund:
