In 2017, Argentina received over 60,000 Chinese people, a 13 percent increase compared with 2016. Three factors are considered as the main driver to attract Chinese tourists: the well-known “End of the World” Ushuaia and exotic features, the more friendly visa-policy for Chinese, as well as the shorter journey from China to Argentina since the direct flight from China to the Caribbean.

Chinese people have already felt the benefits of simplified visiting procedures as those who have the United States or European Union visa can easily secure a visa for Argentina through an electronic procedure.
