Pre-Departure Steps

Please complete the following forms by May 10, 2018.  If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to us any time by phone or email.

*Important Note on your flight DATES*

As you book your flights, take into consideration that the official Argentina program arrival date is Friday, July 6, and you must arrive to the Buenos Aires Ezeiza international airport (airport code EZE) before 12:30pm on this date (note that there will be one group transfer, so early morning arrivals will await the later morning arrivals).  Keep in mind that most flights from the U.S. to Argentina are overnight, departing from the U.S. in the evening and arriving to Argentina the next morning, which means that you would look for a flight departing from the U.S. the evening of Thursday, July 5.  Your housing check out date is Saturday, December 22.

Additional Note on Reciprocity Entrance Fee and Visas:

As of March 2016, the Reciprocity Entrance Fee for US citizens has been suspended. Thus, if you are traveling with your US passport, you can simply enter Argentina as a tourist without a visa. Then once you arrive to Argentina, the staff at the Universidad Católica Argentina will assist you in receiving your student visa. If you are entering Argentina on a passport from a country other then the US, please contact Boston College staff right away to check on any visa requirements for your time in Argentina.
