Arriving in Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini Airport

When you exit your flight at EZE, there are a few administrative hoops that you may have to jump through depending on your country of origin. Here are a few handy tips to make the process easier.

  • Visas. Any citizen from a country that charges Argentinian nationals an entry fee has to pay what is politely called a “reciprocity fee” upon arrival. The price is equivalent to whatever your country charges an Argentinian for a visa. Sometimes this fee is paid in the country of origin before departure. There are exceptions for Americans that are spending less than 90 days in the country or visiting as tourists.
  • Ground Transportation. There is no public transport link to Buenos Aires from the airport, but the Riccheri Highway provides easy road access for taxis, limousines, and private cars. One option is to take a bus from the airport to the small nearby town of Ezeiza and catch another local bus or regional train. Direct shuttle buses connect the airport to several nearby tourist destinations.
  • VIP Memberships. The corporate entity that owns and manages Argentina’s airports, Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, organizes a special VIP Club that offers special services to its members in any airport that they own. Aeropuertos VIP members enjoy perks like assisted customs clearance, priority boarding status, and exclusive parking spots.
