ARGENTINA COUNTRY FAQs

Do I need a Visa to enter Argentina?
Most Western European nationals as well as those from the U.S., Canada and Australia do not require visas to enter Argentina although there is a fee charged to U.S. nationals flying into Ezeiza International Airport. This fee will allow multiple entries for ten years. Other nationals should check with the Argentinean Embassy in their country.

Do I need any vaccinations to enter?
There are none required. Others may be recommended depending on where you are traveling to in the country and the degree of contact you will have with inhabitants. These may include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Yellow Fever and Typhoid. Malaria pills may also be recommended but again, only for certain areas. Check with the recommendations in your country before traveling such as with the CDC in the U.S.

What is the language used?
The official language is Spanish, however, in certain communities, indigenous languages such as Quechua, Aymara, Guarani or Tehuelche may also be used. Because of immigration, one may also hear Italian, German, English, and French, especially in Buenos Aires.

What currency is used?
Currency used is the Argentine peso. ATMs can be found most places and will usually offer a choice between English and Spanish. The drawback is that you can only take out a limited amount in each transaction. While you can keep inserting your card, you will incur whatever fees your bank charges each time. U.S. dollars, Visa and MasterCard are accepted at many larger and more tourist-oriented places. Traveler's checks are difficult to cash.

Is the country safe?
Argentina is one of the safest of the South American countries to travel in. The same cautions should be taken as in any large cities. Buses are safe during the day but taxis are recommended at night.

Is there Internet access?
Most hotels have at least one computer for accessing the Internet and there are many Internet cafes available, often in even small towns. WiFi is also becoming increasingly available.
