Can I cross the border between Brazil and Argentina at any time?

Co-founder Chris Parrott shares advice on crossing the border between Argentina and Brazil.

Ask our Experts

I’m flying from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls but I’m staying on the Brazilian side and I’ve just realised that my plane arrives at 9pm - I’m concerned that the border crossing won’t be open between Brazil and Argentina. What do you advise?

Asked by Mary

There is no need to worry – the border stays open 24 hours a day. Make sure you have your passport to hand and don’t forget to keep the immigration slip as you will need to show it again when you leave Brazil.
