To pay the Argentina reciprocity fee in advance, complete the following steps:

1) Go to https://virtual.provinciapagos.com.a.../Registro.aspx

2) Complete the required information and pay the reciprocity fee (per person) with a credit card

3) Print the receipt and keep it with your passport to show immigration authorities upon entry

The current fees are: $160 for the United States (valid for 10 years), $100 for Australians (valid for 1 year) and $75 for Canadians (valid for one entry).

The link is correct to start the process by first registering. Then you can retrieve your receipt later by logging in

That original link would not let me log in with my username and id (I wanted to retrieve my visa). I took a look at the registration button which asks for stuff that would pertain to an Argentina citizen. It appears to be for Argentine citizens to get their passport.

The "corrected" link I put up lets me log in and retrieve my visa. It also has a registration button that asks for information that makes sense for US/Canada/Australian citizens.

... or is does my computer have gremlins?

Your link worked for me, the original one posted sent me to a dead link and had nothing.
One question, is your link the correct one for first time users? Folks without a password or log in?
I need to pay the fee for a crossing on a few weeks.
Thanks

Australians should not pay their money any earlier than they need to because the validy period is one year from the date of payment NOT date of first entry

Good news for USA Citizens.

Please note the following from the Argentina Embassy;

RECIPROCITY FEE REVOKED FOR US CITIZENS BY PRESIDENTIAL DECREE

US citizens are exempt from paying the reciprocity fee by Presidencial Decree No. 959/2016, published on August 23, 2016.

The reciprocity fee still applies to Australian and Canadian passport holders..

No fees for UK passport holders

I arrived in Argentina by air, left by land, arrived by land, and left by land again. I hold a UK passport and did not have to pay any fees. I presume it is the same for European passport holders as well.

That is why it is called a Reciprocity Fee. It is a very small price to pay for the other benefits citizens of certain lucky countries enjoy.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
