My tourist visa for Argentina (90 days) will expire very soon. Is is true I can go to Colonia (UR) and return to BsAs the same day to obtain a new 90 day visa? (USA passport)?
From reading what you wrote it looked to me as if the main-point of what you wrote was "Even though you have the stamp, you're not here legally.". If you take a second look at what you wrote then maybe you'll see that reading that out of it is a logical thing to do."bjrutledge" said:Elpanada, I suppose you are right --- if you have the stamp in your passport, then you have the stamp. But you are missing my point.
"bjrutledge" said:The question is whether they will give you the stamp or not.
Personally, I would not want to be standing in line, waiting to
re-enter Argentina, and be denied entrance. Or go to the Immigration
Office here and wind up being told that I had to leave the country
soon. Or lose my (stamped) passport and then have my case scrutinized
by more zealous immigration officials when I went to get whatever
stamps I needed on the new passport.
It's that way with most nations and Argentina is perhaps one of them. Argentina does not allow citizens of all countries to enter without applying for visas. My bet is that if you are from a country whose citizens are obliged to apply for visas before entering Argentina and you show up at the airport here without one that you'll be on your way home."bjrutledge" said:In the US people can be (and sometimes are) turned away at the airport,
forced to get on another plane and fly back to wherever they flew in
from. Like Igor said, nobody here has a story like that to tell. But
then if they did, they wouldn't be here to tell it, right?
There is a difference between right and legal right ofcourse, countries are after all nothing more than territories seperated from other territories by invisible lines. But legally speaking yes some people do have a right to visit Argentina which can not really be taken away from them namely Argentinian citizens living abroad."bjrutledge" said:Nobody has a "right" to visit Argentina (or any other country), it is a
privilege granted by the government, and it can be taken away.
