Do I need a Visa?

As a tourist, you do not need a visa to visit Argentina if you plan on staying less than 90 days. If you’re thinking about staying longer than 90 days, we’d advise speaking with the country’s official migration service.

How to get around


The immense size of the country makes air travel the most convenient of the Argentina transport options.  There are a number of airlines servicing the country however be prepared to be routed through Buenos Aires which can cause inconvenience and cost.


The bus network in Argentina is excellent.  Despite the long driving times the buses are fast and very comfortable.  There are a number of different classes, even sleepers for overnight journeys.  Larger luggage is stowed in the hold and security is generally very good.


While there have been reductions in long-distance train service, the rail network continues to reach Buenos Aires and some surrounding areas, as well as services to Posadas and Cordoba.  Trains tend to be cheaper than buses but trains are slower and go to fewer destinations.  Buy train tickets in advance during peak periods.
