No Avoiding It Now: You Have To Pay To Play in Argentina
IN 2010, Argentina instituted a reciprocity fee for United States, Canada, and Australia passport holders, payable on entry to the country. To begin with, it was applicable only to flights into the international airport, Ezeiza (EZE). Argentine officials then expanded it to include the other, smaller airport in Buenos Aires, Aeroparque (AEP). Later, the policy was updated yet again to require passengers to register and pay the reciprocity fee online, before entering the country. This last requirement goes into effect on December 28th. Up until that point, you may pay online or upon arrival.
