The Complexities of Importing into Argentina
Shipping into Argentina is a lengthy and expensive process. Although not as high as other Latin American countries, IT hardware is quite heavily taxed. There are several licenses you need to apply for before shipping. Some of these can take up to 2 weeks to acquire. The Argentinian government has also put restrictions on used goods and small shipments of servers, laptops, desktops, and cell phones. Argentina does, however, have a reasonably strong presence in the Tech industry, with several large data centers located here.
