      Argentina Visa Policy

      The official visa policy of the Argentine government is that foreigners must have visas in hand before they can enter the country unless they are from visa-exempt countries. 

      Visas are obtained from Argentine diplomatic missions abroad or online. The country's visa exempt list is determined by agreements between Argentina and foreign countries which may be multilateral or bilateral.

      If you are from a visa-exempt country, you don't need a visa to enter Argentina. With a valid passport, you can stay in the country for up to 90 days or 60 or 30 days, depending on your nationality. Visa-free visitors can visit any part of the country they wish, but they are only allowed to work with visas, as only work visa holders can work in Argentina.

      Argentina Electronic Travel Authorization

      Some foreigners from selected countries and territories may apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization or AVE if they wish to visit for noncommercial purposes. This online authorization is for tourism, business, and transit. Holders coming for medical treatment may also apply for it too.

      The Argentine ETA is issued only to visitors who meet some conditions. Firstly, the applicant must have a valid visa issued by the United States. 

      This visa may be a B2, B1, J, O, P or E visa. Suppose the applicant is from a country whose citizens enjoy visa exemption in Argentina. In that case, they can go ahead to apply for the ETA provided they can show evidence that they have visited the US at least once in the last 2 years before submitting their application for the ETA or US visa.

      The good thing about Electronic Travel Authorization is that you don't need to waste time on the application or wait weeks to get it. The application is completed in just a few minutes, and the authorities will process your application in three days or less.

      Argentine Travel Certificate

      Another type of application document is an Argentine Travel Certificate issued to citizens of a few countries. This special document is offered to citizens of Taiwan, Tonga, Tuvalu, Kosovo, Nauru, and the Sahrawi Democratic Republic who wish to visit the country. These nationals don't need visas for short trips.

      Note: The list of countries for visa exemption and ETA is always changing, so endeavor to consult the current list to determine whether you need a visa or not or whether you qualify for ETA.

      Key Information About The Argentina Electronic Travel Authorization

      All ETA applicants must be aware of key details about this document before submitting their applications or making the trip to Argentina with it. In this section, we throw more light and what you need to know about this entry document.

      It is not a Visa: First, you should know that this ETA is not a visa but a legal entry document. Holders are not entitled to any other privilege apart from what brought them into the country. They are not issued any permits during their stay in Argentina either.

      Apply outside: You cannot apply for ETA while in Argentina. Despite being an online process, you must be outside to obtain it.

      Only for designated routes: This document will only be accepted for entry at designated entry routes. You may be denied entry if you use it for an unapproved route. Also, it is only valid for trips to Argentina, not any other country.

      Financial Sufficiency: All visitors coming to Argentina for short visits must show proof of financial sufficiency in cash, credit, or debit card. The funds must cover their daily needs multiplied by the number of days or weeks they plan to spend.

      Argentine Immigration: Do note that despite having an ETA, a visitor may be denied entry by Argentine Immigration if they cannot explain beyond reasonable doubt why they are coming to Argentina. They may also be denied entry if the officers discover that the ETA was obtained with false documents or information.
