    Airports and Customs ArgentinaThe three airports in Buenos Aires are the J. Newbery AeroPark, Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport and the Comandante Espora Aero Station, in Bahía Blanca. The most important of them, the Ezeiza International Airport, is located 34 km (21.25 mi) from the city and serves a large capacity of international airlines as well as the national airlines that fly to foreign countries. Despite that there are two other international airports, they are generally utilized for flights to neighboring countries only. Therefore it is necessary at times to make a connection in Ezeiza Airport to continue on to North America, Europe and other continents.

    Domestic flights, called "cabotaje", whose destinations are the interior cities of Argentina, arrive and depart from Jorge Newbery AeroPark, located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Buenos Aires. It is necessary to pay an airport tax on these local flights.

    Airport Taxes

    All passengers must pay a US $20 tax to leave the country.


    As you leave the airport there are usually bus, taxi or remise services that you can count on to take you to your hotel. Be aware that the bus will only take you to the center of the city.

    The remise is a type of taxi in which the rates have already been previously established. In Ezeiza Airport, remise are contracted in the airport at established posts or booths.
    The microbus is a means of public transportation with a set departure schedule for its passengers. They are quite inexpensive but they make several stops, therefore it could take up to 2 hours to get to downtown Buenos Aires from the Ezeiza Airport.  
    It is also possible to contract private buses or shuttle buses at the airport or the hotel where you are staying. This service is more economical than a taxi and much more comfortable and faster than a bus.


    It is prohibited to enter into the country with plants, vegetables, fruit and perishable foods. You may enter with domestic animals as long as they have been certified and have their vaccinations up to date.

    You may enter Argentina with up to 2 liters of alcoholic beverages, 400 cigarettes and 50 cigars.

    If you are bringing an automobile or will rent one, you need an international permit. If you do not bring a permit with you, you can get one in the National Transit Authority (Dirección Nacional de Tránsito), Av. Coronel Roca 5252, between the hours of 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM. You must present a document of identification and certificate of temporary residence within the federal capital.

    A certificate of vaccinations is not required to enter the country, except for passengers traveling from countries where cholera and yellow fever originated.
