This week Obama is visiting Argentina and one of the main points of interest for negotiations between he and Argentine President, Macri, is ease of travel between Argentina and the US for their respective citizens. As a result of yesterday’s negotiations, the Argentine government has temporarily suspended the US$160 reciprocity fee it has charged US travelers entering the country since 2008.
The measure, now in effect as of today, was revealed in a statement yesterday by the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
According to the Argentine embassy in the US, “as from March 24, 2016, and until further notice, payment of the Reciprocity Fee will not be required from US passport holders.”
