I guess it's just a fee, with no visa ;-) I do believe I heard it took effect Jan 1, so I won't have to pay it, tho my friend who arrives on Jan 1 may have to. I will report back with what happens.

If you take into account the average income, it s still way more affordable for US citizens to enter Argentina than for Argentines to enter the US (reciprocity would then be around 700 USD). Add to this the costs and time to go to an embassy to get a visa and the embarassing position of being asked a lot of personal questions as if you were dishonest or dangerous by nature because you come from a poorer country.
Btw, wasnt that tax planed to start on Jan 1st 2009?

I certainly see the point about fairness, but what I don't understand is why any country would want to lower itself to the same level as United States, Australia, Canada, etc.?
