Getting an Argentinian visa in Valparaiso
Just like the Chilean visa, I also didn’t have an Argentinian visa before leaving the Philippines because to be honest I didn’t plan on including it in my limited time in Latin America. But of course plans change a lot on the road. When my friend and I were figuring out how to get to Patagonia, the name Argentina kept on popping up along the way. It was not possible to travel in Chile by land to Patagonia without crossing the border (flying is okay). So in the end I tried to get one while I was still in Valparaiso, Chile.
Getting a Chilean visa in Arequipa
When I left the Philippines some months ago I didn’t have a Chilean visa. I know I wanted to see Patagonia but since I was traveling for awhile and I was flying to South America far into the future I couldn’t apply yet. Thankfully I read about Kach Medina’s post about how she got hers in Peru. She was right and it turns out much easier than applying in the Philippines.
