VAT refunds on accommodation
International visitors receive a direct and automatic reimbursement of the
21% value added tax (VAT) charged on accommodation in Argentina.
VAT on hotel stays and other accommodation will automatically
be refunded for international visitors who pay with a foreign credit card
or via bank transfer from a foreign bank.
The ellimination of VAT on accommodation charges, combined with
a favorable exchange rate, make visiting Buenos Aires more affordable.
The new VAT rule covers hotel stays and other forms of accommodations,
and includes VAT imposed on breakfast services if they are part of the cost
of lodging. Other hotel services are excluded and must be billed separately.
The rebate system is available to visitors who can prove with a valid
passport or identification card that they live abroad, and who pay for their
accommodation with a non-Argentine credit card or via bank transfer from
another country. The process is completed at the time of billing, with no
need for any extra paperwork.
