Currency

Where to acquire Argentine pesos?

Bureau of Exchange  or banks are the best place to make a reliable, transparent and secure transaction. However, in the downtown, it is very likely to find the so-called “arbolitos”, people who offer the trade of foreign currency. The risk of changing currency this way is very high, since the origin of such currencies is unknown.

 

Shops: some restaurants, hotels, shopping malls, among others, offer a more convenient change if paid with dollars in cash (dollar bill).

Tax Free Shopping

Foreign tourists can request the refund of VAT on purchases of goods of national production equal to or greater than $ 70 (seventy Argentine pesos) made in the country in the stores participating in the Tax Free system of “Global Blue Argentina”.

To make this refund, follow these steps:

In the store: buy in the stores that display the Tax Free logo and ask for the refund form.

In the Argentine Customs: when leaving the country, in any office of the Argentine Customs (in airports, river ports or border posts), show the invoices along with your purchases and your passport and have the refund forms stamped.

Collection of the tax refund: could be in cash, by credit card or bank check.

Learn more about all the offices where you can get the VAT refund.
