Argentina removes reciprocity rate for Canadian visitors

Tourists from Canada who have ordinary passports will no longer have to pay the reciprocity rate to enter Argentina.

The elimination will take effect on January 1st, 2018.

Argentine minister of tourism, Gustavo Santos, said: “It is very important to provide new mechanisms for tourists who want to visit our country and advance in international integration.

“Tourism is a key activity for the commercial relationships of Argentina with the world.”

In terms of connectivity, Argentina and Canada are aiming to be more connected.

Currently, Air Canada joins Toronto with Buenos Aires in six weekly frequencies, with a previous stopover in Santiago de Chile; although as of May 2018 there will be three direct weekly frequencies.

There are also flights with a stop-over operated by Delta (Atlanta, USA), Aeroméxico (Mexico City), United Airlines (Houston, USA) and American Airlines (going through Dallas, Miami or New York).
