Sometime ago I found an excellent web page on Mendoza. It was full of practical information about the area. Somehow I lost it from my book marks. I'm planning a 2 to 3 month trip to a single city in Argentina. I want to practice my Spanish and familiarize myself with Argentina. It appears that I may choose Mendoza. Does anyone have any idea of the address of that site? It was administered by someone who had an intimate knowledge of the area and contributed to this forum.
Also,I'm puzzled by the identification one needs to cross from Mendoza to Chile by bus. Isn't a simple passport enough either way?

Hi Robert, maybe you are referring to our site www.welcometomendoza.com

Yes a simple passport is enough for the border crossing. What you may have seen in the past, is dialog related to expired visas, etc

Currently when you enter Argentina by ground or air (except Ezeiza airport) you are automatically granted a 90 day tourist visa if you present a USA passport that does not already have an Argentine residency visa in it . Some tourists stay longer and then run into the fines, etc.

Good luck and looking forward to any questions you may have about the area. Cheers

Hi all
Last week I went to Chile and use only my passport and I didnīt have a problem. I am Argentino, I can use my D.N.I., Cedula or passport.
When you complete the visa you have different options, D.N.I., Cedula or Passport.


Regards

Your passport is sufficient if you are American. At the border, you willl get a 90 day tourist visa stamp for no charge, like when you arrived in Argentina.

You do not need to apply for and buy a pre-arranged visa like you do for Brazil and Paraguay. There is no entry charge like there is at the Bolivia borders. You only need to pay the reciprocity fees ($US 130 for Argentina, $US 135 for Chile) when you arrive at the international airports in BA and Santiago, not for land borders or other airports.

Let me know by private message if you would like any info such as self-tours, Spanish instructors, etc.

Great video! Excellent selection of offerings. Theme is wine but set in an experience of thermal baths, great food, white water adventure,tango and majestic mountains. Very,very well done.
