Media Release: Australians say ‘Adiós’ to Reciprocity Fees and ‘Hola’ to Argentina Stopovers

Sydney, 5 July 2017 – Argentina Stopovers have just become a whole lot more convenient for Australian travellers with Argentina’s “Dirección Nacional de Migraciones” announcing the suspension of its reciprocity fee for Australian citizens entering Argentina, effective 1st July 2017.

Chad Carey, co-founder of Australia’s leading Latin America specialist Chimu Adventures says the suspension was yet another milestone bringing Argentina one step closer to becoming Latin America’s favourite travel hot spot for Australians.

“Demand for Argentina has been booming for us and the fee suspension will only reinforce this trend” he said.

“With air capacity being at record heights and airfares as competitive as never before, we are expecting Argentina to fly high for years to come. With its amazing culture, food & wine, architecture and spirit, Argentina truly combines everything Australians love in a destination.”

According to Carey, there are now more reasons than ever to stop over in the ‘the Paris of South America’, Buenos Aires.

“A cultural goldmine with its European heritage and world-famous cuisine, Buenos Aires is a place that truly represents Latin spirit, flair and essence that can be felt from the moment you set foot in the metropole.”
