Visa for Peru and neighbouring countries

Hello -

Do I need a separate visa for Peru,argentina,chile and bolivia ?

we are planning a trip to Machu Pichu in December and were wondering what else can we cover in the same trip - besides Cusco and Lima.

Please let me know.

Really appreciate your help.

Thanks.

Because you are from the USA you will require a visa for Bolivia and it is $135.

You don't need a visa for Argentina unless you plan to stay longer than 90 days but because you are from the USA you need to pay $160 fee online at this website http://www.provinciapagos.com.ar/dnm/

You don't need a visa for Chile but if you arrive at the Santiago airport you will have to pay $160 fee similar to Argentina.

If you are a USA citizen you do not need a visa to visit any of the countries you mention, but you will be charged 100 dollars when you enter Argentina and Chile

Are you US citizen traveling as a tourist on a US passport?

If so, you don't need visas for Peru, Chile or Argentina. However, Argentina requires a reciprocity fee of $160 paid upon entry into the country (this payment is good for 10 years). Chile also charges $160 fee, but only if you enter Chile at the Santiago airport.

But you do need a visa for Bolivia: …state.gov/travel/…entry_requirements
