For Canadian and Australian citizens, the fee allows for a single entry. Currently this fee is only being charged at the Ministro Pistarini (Ezeiza) international airport, and not at other entry points. Payment of this fee is required upon arrival at the airport and can be paid in cash or by credit card.

Health and Safety



Health


BA Placement requires that all program participants have medical insurance coverage during their stay. If you do not already have international health insurance/medical coverage you should purchase international health insurance before departing for Argentina.

Make sure your medical insurance is sufficient and valid during the whole period you are staying abroad.


Medications / Prescriptions

Students with a preexisting medical problem should carry a letter from the attending physician, describing the medical condition and any prescription medications, including the generic names of prescribed drugs.  Any medications being carried overseas should be left in their original containers and be clearly labelled.

Students who are under medication may consult their Doctor before departure and are advised to take  enough medicines to last during your stay abroad.

If you require prescription medications while abroad, you will very likely need to verify this requirement with a doctor's note. You may need a specially notarized prescription if the pharmacy you go to does not recognize U.S. prescriptions. You may also need to have your prescription translated into spanish, in order to have it filled properly. Let your doctor know that you intend to travel abroad so that he can provide the appropriate documentation you will need to fill the prescription while away from home.


Personal Safety


It is advisable not to leave purses, luggage or handbags counters or on the backs of chairs. Avoid exhibiting jewelry, important amounts of money, traveler’s checks, credit cards and other documentation. When on public transportation keep your purse and/or backpack close to the front of your body where you can see it.

Always take an ID with you, since the police may ask you to show it, especially at night. Try to take a form of ID other than your passport, as it is not advisable to take your passport out with you. Please keep a copy of your passport with you if that is your only form of ID.

We advise you taking taxis at night, preferably calling ahead for one.

In Argentina there is tolerance towards tourists and visitors. Therefore, you should expect a warm welcome from the Argentines, who will be ready to make contact with you and help you adapt to the ways of the country. Crimes against tourists are mostly pick-pocketing and short-changing or fake bills, which are all things you can avoid if you always stay alert.

BA Placement offers a variety of internships all year round and throughout most functional areas. You choose the field, and we provide you with a choice of placement.
