International visitors receive a direct and automatic reimbursement of the 21% value added tax (VAT) charged on accommodation in Argentina.
VAT on hotel stays and other accommodation will automatically be refunded for international visitors who pay with a foreign credit card or via bank transfer from a foreign bank.
