Argentina Visa

Immigration requirements differ for each country, so be sure to check the consulate page for your country of origin. It is the sole responsibility of the student to ensure compliance with Argentina Visa and immigration requirements to enter the country prior to departure.

In general, our students enter the country on a tourist Argentina Visa, which typically lasts 90 days and can be renewed for a second period of 90 days after arrival (for a total period of 180 days).

This information is current as of October 9, 2018 and is subject to change.

Host Institute & Study Center

Our Language School in Argentina is located in a historical and newly-renovated building at just a short distance from Casa Rosada, Puerto Madero, and the Obelisk. We are located in the city center (“centro”) so the area is filled with restaurants, cafes, and nearby parks to enjoy lunch with new friends. We are also just a few steps from the subway line “B” so you can easily take public transportation to the Spanish school from Palermo, Belgrano, and Recoleta.

Expanish is one of the most modern Spanish language schools in Buenos Aires, as the school is bright and spacious, with vibrant colors and inviting decor. The Expanish Study Abroad staff will be your on-site support staff during your time abroad!
