As I previously wrote, I’m headed to Chile and Argentina in a month and needed to get my reciprocity fee for Argentina handled, as Argentina no longer allows processing to happen at the airport. The fee is, unfortunately, $160 and is called a reciprocity fee because it’s the exact same fee we charge Argentinians to enter the United States. The cost is somewhat steep, but the fee receipt is valid for 10 years.
Spanish isn’t my first language and dealing with embassy instructions can sometimes be tricky, so I asked my friend in Argentina what is the easiest way to handle the reciprocity fee process.
He sent me to the website of VisaToArgentina, a company that does, well, just that. For an additional fee of $20 on top of the $160 reciprocity fee, they handle everything with a simple, two-step process. I ordered my fee ticket last night and by this morning, I had an email in my in-box with the receipt attached.
I’m a big fan of making travel bureaucracy as easy as possible, so if you are going to Argentina, consider using this service.
