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.
