CUSTOMS IN ARGENTINA

CUSTOMS AND TAXES

Taxes
All persons must pay an airport tax of US 20 $ when leaving the country.

Transportation
Generally at the airport exits you will find services of buses, taxis or special taxis or remisse, which will take you to your hotel or in the case of the buses, to the centre of the city. The remisse, are a species of taxi in which the tariffs have been established previously, and in case of the Airport Ezeiza, they can be hired inside the airport in special stalls established for this purpose.

The microbuses of public transport have fixed departure schedules, they are quite economic, but they realize multiple stops, for which the trip the Ezeiza Airport to the centre of Buenos Aires can take approximately 2 hours.
It is also possible to hire the service of private buses or shuttle buses, at the airport itself or for the return in the hotel at which you stay, this service turns out to be more economic than a taxi, and much more comfortable and rapid than a regular bus.
