Argentina Entry Fees For Business And Leisure Travel
Updated: 21Nov12
Revised: 05Dec12 - special instructions
Revised: 31Dec12 - special instructions

Argentina authorities collect an entry fee for all arriving U.S., Canadian and Australian citizens. Please refer to Argentina Reciprocity Fee.

For additional information refer directly to: Argentinian Business Travel Requirements for US Citizens.

Special Instructions:
Effective December 28, 2012, for arrivals to Ezeiza International airport (EZE), all U.S. tourist or business visitors must pay the reciprocity rates (USD $160 for Americans) with their credit card through the online system. The reciprocity fee is valid for years and can be transferred to your new passport should it expire before the 10-year reciprocity fee expires.

Currently during the INFORMED COMPLIANCE period, we highly recommend every traveler who falls within the specific nationality (U.S., Australian, and Canadian) to pay the reciprocity fee online. This will help the traveler to avoid the inconvenience of paying the fee on arrival and delaying processing through immigration control.

The airlines will be notified when the pay-on-arrival option will be discontinued and when it will become mandatory for the listed nationals to have a pre-paid receipt prior to U.S. departure. Customers without the pre-paid receipt will be denied boarding because they will not be allowed to enter Argentina.

Re-entering Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD)
Updated: 17Dec12

When making changes to a customer's itinerary that involve adding, changing, and/or confirming schedule change for Other Airline (OA) segments, you are required to resubmit the Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) data. According to Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD) FAQs, the purpose of this requirement is to ensure that SFPD data is transmitted properly to the OA system. This requirement applies to PNRs that are on a courtesy hold or ticketed. Failure to follow the proper steps can result in cancellation of the OA segments.

Schedule Change Notification Reminder
Update: 12Dec12

AA uses an automated schedule change process up to 72 hours prior to departure. Through this process all schedule changes are sent to the booking source for notification. It is the responsibility of the booking source to notify the customer, acknowledge the schedule change and reissue the ticket. Customer's tickets must match current flight information prior to departure for check-in.

To avoid any inconvenience to the customer please process your schedule changes daily.
