How to Apply for a Visa: Antarctica (and Argentina)
This tour includes time in both Argentina and Antarctica.
Citizens from most countries, including the U.S., Canada, Australia, E.U. and U.K., do not need a visa for a tourist visit of less than 90 days. Your passport must be valid for at least six months at the time of entering Argentina and have at least two blank pages. You will also need proof of onward/return flights.

The Antarctic Treaty’s Protocol on Environmental Protection in 1998 declared that all visitors to Antarctica must obtain a permit to enter, but no visa is required for citizens of any countries that signed the Antarctica Treaty.

Prior to the tour, each tour participant will need to apply for a permit. We will provide more information about the application process as we get closer to the tour departure date.
Upon boarding the expedition ship to Antarctica, you will need to present a valid passport.
