On March 24, 2016, the Argentine National Immigration Agency suspended its US$ 160 reciprocity fee for U.S. nationals traveling to Argentina for stays of up to 90 days.
Reciprocity fees are costs charged at a country's points of entry (most often airports) for passport holders of certain nationalities. They were created to counter the fees the passport holder's country charges citizens from that nation.
The Embassy of Argentina stated the following:
“In order to strengthen the relationship between Argentina and the United States of America, the Argentine Government has resolved to suspend the collection of the reciprocity fee from U.S. passport holders who visit our country for less than 90 days, for tourist or business purposes.” – Buenos Aires, March 24, 2016.
