If you require a visa, it is strongly recommended that you apply at least three months in advance to ensure you receive your visa in time for travel. To obtain a visa application form, visit the Argentina Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate nearest your city/location.
For complete information about how to enter to Argentina and visa requirements for your country of origin – including a list of countries requiring a visa – visit the Argentine Immigration Department website and please check if it is required.
