Argentina - have sticker in expired passport from 2011 - do I need to pay reciproc. fee?

Jump to last reply

I don't travel in SA often or visit this forum often so I'm sorry if this has been asked & answered before. I did search and saw lots of reciprocity fee comments but not regarding this specific situation.

My husband and I got the stickers in our passports from Argentina in 2011. I think at that time it was called a visa not just reciprocity fee but I'm not sure. I know that was to be good for 10 years.

If we go back next year I'm wondering if in fact that is still valid or if the reciprocity fee is now something totally different and the old stickers are meaningless. To add to my confusion, my husband's passport will have expired by then and he'll have a new one. So I wonder if he's allowed to just bring his old one and show the sticker.

If this could just be taken care of at the airport on arrival and we had to pay again I wouldn't worry but if it needs to be resolved before leaving home I am a little concerned. I've emailed the embassy in DC to try to get a definitve answer.

Anyone have any first-hand experience of this? Thanks.
