In order to introduce firearms to Argentina, foreign citizens will have to fill in one technical form per hunter (x3 and up to three firearms by form) which they will have to present to local authorities upon arrival at Ezeiza International Airport in Argentina. The cost of this is of U$S140 per firearm. This is paid once in Argentina but the form can be completed before departure. A description (and any official updates) of this process and the necessary technical form can be found at the following website: http://www.anmac.gob.ar by clicking on the link that reads "TOURISTS: Entering or exiting the country with firearms"

If you require, Yes. All international flights will be arriving at Ezeiza International Airport.

We accept the following methods of payment: cash, checks (5% plus), and wired deposits. In case our clients decide to purchase something at the airport or in a shop along the way, US Dollars and Euros are generally taken everywhere. Foreign currencies can be exchanged in banks and authorized bureaus. American Express, VISA and Master Card credit cards are widely accepted in restaurants, hotels, and shops. There may be difficulties in changing traveler s checks outside Buenos Aires. We will assist their clients if they need to change foreign currencies once in Argentina for private expenses.
HOW MUCH DO I TIP?
10% of the amount of the check is usually left in cafeterias and restaurants. Doormen, porters, and ushers in cinemas and theatres are also generally tipped. Tips are only left if clients have been satisfied with the service they have received.
Gratuities for lodge and field staff are not included in the hunting cost since we feel that tipping, in general, is discretionary. However, clients have asked that we provide general guidelines; therefore, we suggest 10% of your hunting expenses for your guide and $30 to $45 per hunter per day for all the house staff. You are welcome to tip your field assistant directly; all other tips should be settled with the house Manager when paying your final bill.
CAN YOU PROVIDE THE FIREARMS?

Most of the hunts are early in the morning and late afternoons. We can use either spot and stalk or blind hunting techniques depending on the client’s preferences and the species sought.

It is very simple. After the hunt, we put you in touch with the exporting company that will send you an information request (name, the destination of trophies, port of entry, import broker, etc), their fees and conditions and a quote for their exporting job. Once you agree with this we then take all trophies to Buenos Aires to the exporter warehouse who takes over and carries out the job in coordination with the import broker you have nominated. We follow up to make sure he delivers on time
