Border Crossing :: Chile to Argentina – Las Cuevas

Our entry into Argentina was fastest and most straight-forward border crossing of the entire trip.  Driving through the mountains provides a scenic route, and the drive-through customs procedure is a pleasant surprise for border-wearied ramblers.


When you drive up to the first kiosk about 25 km from the border, an official will request to see your Chilean Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit and will then wave you through.  You can now drive into Argentina.



Drive to the migracion office and show your passports and your Chilean Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit.  You do not even have to get out of your vehicle.

At aduana, a drive-through office, fill out the form provided by a customs official.


TIP: Argentina requires vehicle insurance (seguro), which you can buy in Chile as well.  It costs $58 USD per month.
