Who will pick us up at the airport?
In Cordoba, you will be met by airport skycaps who will assist you in carrying your luggage. They will lead you to JJCaceria staff, and they will drive you to the lodge. We’ve also have drivers in Buenos Aires who can transfer you between airports.
What documents will I need when traveling to Argentina?
If you are a US citizen, you do not need to apply for a visa, but you will need to bring a valid passport. As of January 2013 there is an entry fee of US$160 that needs to be paid only only by U.S., Canadian and Australian citizens prior to arrival in Argentina, with a credit card. This is a Reciprocity Fee, which is valid for 10 years. The easiest way to process this fee is at http://www.migraciones.gov.
You will need to print the receipt as the airline will ask for it in your country, and again the Argentine Migrations officer will ask for it upon your arrival to our country. The receipt is a ticket showing your info with a bar code. If you have already paid for the Reciprocity Fee on a recent past trip, please reprint the receipt and check your passport for the stamp.
