NYC to Mendoza Argentina- Checking Bags

Jump to last reply

I am taking a LAN flight from John F Kennedy airport to Mendoza Argentina. This flight has a layover in Santiago Chile. The return flight is the same (just in reverse order)

Now my question is Do I have to pay the Chile Reciprocity tax at the airport? I have heard many things about this issue and I am not even sure whom to call to ask! I have heard that you don;t need to pay because the bags go all the way through from NYC to Mendoza. But then I heard on the way back that Chile doesn't accept Mendoza screening of bags, so they make you exit the airport then reenter though customs and immigration and recheck your bags to NYC.

Does anyone have any ideas how this works? I know I will have to pay the Argentina Tax to get into Argentina..

Thank you all in advance for your time to respond
