At the beginning of the summer season, the Argentina Foreign Ministry compiled a “Handbook for Argentine tourists” with recommendations to be taken into account by the Argentines who choose overseas destinations for their holidays:

• What documentation is important?

In the case of South American countries may cross to the neighboring country with one of the three documents, provided they are in force: ID card, ID card or passport.
In the rest of the world, only you can travel with the passport and it is important to note first that is not defeated.
Secondly, think that, despite being in effect at the time you start the trip, the passport must remain valid after the trip, for at least six months. Keep in mind that the latter varies depending on the destination you choose, there are countries that require an even greater duration, and therefore it is advisable to contact the embassy or consulate of the country or countries that want to visit. It will find all the phones in our country foreign representations on the website of the Foreign Ministry in Argentina:


Do not forget, moreover, requiring competent authorities both on entering and leaving the country you are visiting, the stamping of passport or immigration card delivery to the entry and exit stamps to avoid fines or complications the future. It is also important, respect the authorized period of stay and level of income allowed. A good measure to take before travel is to make photocopies of documents to be carried outside. This is convenient for two reasons. First, if the tourist loses his passport or identity card, a photocopy will facilitate the task Argentine consulate to issue a new travel document. Second, it is not necessary, in general, around the city of the foreign country (though it is to leave it to another destination or take a plane) with the original passport, you can do it wearing a photocopy and leaving receipt (in the hotel, for example) the travel document, saving the displeasure of a possible loss.

• When traveling with children should be taken into account:

• If your child is traveling with both parents, the Department shall be required to Argentina to allow the child to leave the country, the birth certificate or marriage certificate in order to test the link, in order to prove that they are indeed theirparents.

If the child is traveling with one parent, the Department shall require, so you can leave the country, permit or travel permission (which is pending before a notary public) by which the other parent authorizing the child to leave the territory Argentina.

If the child is traveling alone or accompanied by a third party, the Department shall require a permit or permission to travel signed by both parents (is advisable to include in the permit also authorized to process a new passport in case of theft or loss)

• Travelers Insurance:

Public health systems of other countries do not always respond. It is therefore advisable to hire before you travel, insurance coverage on the outside for the whole family. This type of coverage covers, too, in case of accidents or other exceptional services, patient transport plane to Argentina in health emergencies. There is also in the market, insurance covering other risks as in the case of bankruptcy of the airline carrier, liability, and so on. It is recommended that background on the scope of benefits, to avoid last minute inconveniences when using contracted services.

• Other aspects to consider:

Tourists should be informed prior to the Consulate or Embassy of the country you are visiting on the immigration requirements, mainly health (vaccines applied, for example), the entry with pets (presentation of health certificates and vaccinations required by the authorities foreign health) and food products which are prohibited to enter (animals, vegetables, fruits and canned products, etc.), and the requirements relating to the entry of vehicles.

• Autos:

If the tourist moves his car into neighboring countries, a number of conditions that the owner or driver of the car must meet the information that you can take recourse to the consulate or embassy. It is also essential insurance against third-least-to be enforceable and that the insurance company has offices or correspondent in the country you are visiting.
Before embarking on the trip by car, you should also learn about the laws or rules governing traffic in the country of destination.
Avoid fines and delays: In some cases, it was found that non-payment of fines or traffic violations resulted in delays in departure.

• Tips several:

Finally, there are some recommendations which, although common sense and obey may be redundant, experience indicates that it is appropriate to mention them because they are usually forgotten by a large percentage of tourists. The fact taken into account, you can avoid unpleasant situations and even cumbersome. Some of them are:
