Holders of Swedish regular passport:
If you have a Swedish passport, you do not need a visa to enter Argentina when the following two requirements are met:
- You travel as a tourist, for business, or to perform any activity for which you will not receive compensation in Argentina or Sweden.
- The expected duration of your stay in Argentina is not longer than 90 days.
This visa exemption applies only to the regular Swedish passport. If you have another type of Swedish passport (eg emergency passport, alien's passport or travel document) you do need a visa.
To enter without a visa with a Swedish regular passport, it is only required that the passport is valid at the time of arrival. Argentina does not require further 6-month validity of the passport. The airline may also ask you to submit a departure ticket from Argentina.
Once you enter Argentina without a visa with a Swedish passport, you can stay in the country for up to 90 days from the date of arrival.
During this period you will be able to enter and leave Argentina as many times as you want but you must leave the country before the expiry of the 90 days counted since your first arrival.
Holders of regular passport not issued by Sweden:
If you have an regular passport issued by a State or territory other than Sweden, check here if you need an Argentine visa.
- If you do not need a visa to enter Argentina, you will only be required to show a valid passport at the time of arrival in the country. Argentina does not require further 6-month validity of the passport. The airline may also ask you to submit a departure ticket from Argentina.
Once you enter Argentina without a visa with an regular passport, you can stay in the country for up to 90 days from the date of arrival. Exception: as it’s shown in the table attached above, in some cases the period of stay allowed is less than 90 days: 60 or 30 days.
During this period you can enter and leave Argentina as many times as you want but you must leave the country before the expiry of the 90, 60 or 30 days, depending on the case, counted always from your first arrival.
- If you need Argentine visa, find out here where you have to apply for the visa.
NOTE: Keep in mind that in some cases you can choose to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA), which allows you to enter Argentina without a visa as the ETA replaces the visa.
Only foreigners who meet the following requirements can apply for ETA:
- Travel for tourism purposes
- Passport issued by one of these States
- Possessing a valid B2 visa issued by the United States. Length of validity of the United States visa must be at least 120 days
The ETA enables a period of stay of 90 days in Argentina and allows multiple entries and exits.
Cost: USD 50
Processing time: 20 days
Processing mode: online through the website of the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones (DNM). You will be required to pay the fee by card and attach a copy of the required US visa.
Access the DNM website here to apply for your ETA: http://www.migraciones.gov.ar/ave/index.htm
In case of enquiries or complaints, address them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that Argentine Embassies and Consulates do not have competence regarding ETA.
The application for ETA does not prevent the subsequent application for a visa, in case the ETA has been rejected.
