Applying for Argentina Visa for Indian Citizens in South America

  • Ecuador:¬ I applied for the Argentina tourist visa at the Argentine consulate in Quito, Ecuador.¬†I submitted¬†all the required¬†documents. As proof of onward travel, I showed a round-trip bus ticket from Brazil. Seeing this, the consular asked me to apply for the visa in Brazil since I was going to enter Argentina from Brazil
    Takeaway –¬ You need to show a flight ticket from Ecuador to Argentina to apply in Ecuador
  • Brazil:¬ I called the Argentina consulate in Sao Paulo and they said they can’t issue a tourist visa to non-Brazilians. I went to Rio de Janeiro consulate and the consular agreed to take my application but I was put off by the 1 week waiting time. So, I decided to apply later. A mistake, because the Argentina consulates in Foz do Iguacu and Porto Alegre denied my request giving the same reason as the Sao Paulo consulate
    Takeaway –¬ Apply for Argentina tourist visa in Rio de Janeiro
  • Bolivia:¬ Argentina visa for Indian citizens is not available in Bolivia.
  • Uruguay:¬ After some 4 months of wild goose chase, I finally got the Argentina tourist visa in Montevideo, Uruguay. Submit the required documents and they take about 3-5 days to process your visa.
    Takeaway: Easiest Argentina visa for Indian citizens is to be gotten in Uruguay.
