The main form of currency is the Argentine Peso (ARS$). For current exchange rates, click here.
Please be sure to check the entry requirements for your country at the nearest Argentine consulate or embassy, as these vary from country-to-country. Not all countries require visas; however, travelers from certain countries are obliged to pay a reciprocity fee before arriving in the country.
Please allow enough time for visa applications. Refunds will not be given to participants who were unable to obtain the necessary paperwork for entry.
Information on letters of invitation is available here.
The sole purpose of an invitation letter is to facilitate delegates’ visa arrangements and does not imply financial or other support by the organizers. All expenses incurred in relation to the congress are the sole responsibility of the delegate.
The SIU will not contact embassies or consulates on behalf of applicants.
It is the delegate’s responsibility to allow adequate time to make visa arrangements.
Taxis are easy to locate in Buenos Aires. “Radio Taxis” (often black and yellow) are registered through a company and the safest option for travel. Make sure to have small bills to pay your fare as it can be difficult to get change for larger bills.
It is customary to tip restaurant servers 10-15% of the bill, while you can round up to the next peso for taxi drivers. At your hotel, porters are usually tipped with a small bill and cleaning staff can be tipped a few pesos per day.
