Hello,

I have a US passport and an official argentine id document (DNI). When traveling from Argentina to any Mercosur country, I only need that DNI. But if I am traveling directly from the US, do I need a visa or process an Argentine passport?Or can I enter Brazil on my DNI, ... :?
Thanks for help.....

Usually passport trumps ID document if you need a visa. When Argentina had the reciprocity fee for US citizens some were hopeful they could enter Argentina on their Chilean ID but it was not allowed.

I flew panama to colombia. ENtered colombia with my chilean id without a problem.

The argentina mess was about ripping off tourists. Even argentinen citizens, born in the u.s., were being hit with the entry fee.

I was in Argentina for a week recently, and they were no longer collecting the entry fee. I had my old passport with me, with the sticker from 2010, but the Migras said it wasn't necessary.
