Thinking about Rio-El Calafate

Hi everyone,

I'm considering doing a MIA-GIG-FTE-MIA trip using BA miles via LAN in January. I was wondering about reciprocal fees & visas I would need to be aware about.

Also, any suggestions on lodging?

If you are American: $130 for Brazil visa (you must arrange it before the trip) + $130 Argentina entry fee. You can avoid the latter if you don't fly into EZE (land in AEP or cross the border overland).

The reciprocity fee (US$140) is collected at BOTH AEP and EZE.
