yes , that is the reason to call that Reciprocity Fee when you cross the border you pay like in USA
Hi Long Beach!
Yes. Others have reported that the Argentine authorities are insistent that the arrival tax, the Reciprocity Fee, has to be paid. I've not heard any accounts of the Argentine border patrol relaxing this rule for day visits. Check with a reputable, English-speaking guide, perhaps arranged through your Brazilian hotel. Professional guides possess up-to-the-minute information that travel writers can't get.
Remember that Canadians, Australians and US passport holders have to pay this tax to enter Argentina, even coming by land at Iguasu Falls. The Argentines insist that it be paid by credit card, over the internet, in advance. You are not supposed to be able to pay it in cash at the border (but then I haven't tried). Unlike the excessively bureaucratic rules for a Brazilian visa, you can pay the Argentine tax the night before, or even the same morning from your Brazilian hotel. If you do, ask the hotel is there's a way you can get the paid receipt printed. When we crossed, the Argentines looked for the receipts. The border patrol could not tell from our passports alone that we'd paid.
Thank you for being so clear about the options.
