IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Argentina will waive the visa reciprocity fee for Canadians starting Jan. 1.
What does the change mean? Canadians will no longer need to pay the US$78 online fee before travel, as is currently required. Canadians remain visa-exempt for stays of up to 90 days in Argentina.
Background: In 2008, Argentina imposed reciprocity fees on travelers from Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Argentina removed the reciprocity fee for the U.S. in 2016 and for Australia this year.
BAL Analysis: The removal of the reciprocity fee will facilitate business travel and reduce costs for Canadian business travelers to Argentina.
