What are the Bank Deposit requirements in Argentina?

To deposit money into an Argentinian bank account, you need to have your recipient’s:

  • Bank name
  • Account type
  • Unique banking key (CBU) — found on your recipient’s bank statement
  • Account currency (Argentinian peso accounts only)
  • Full name as it appears on their bank account (please include the paternal and maternal name)
  • Complete address, including the city and the province
  • A valid phone number (city code + domestic number)

Recipient Limits

The Argentinian government limits the total send and receive amount each calendar year.

If more than 15,000 pesos is sent by you or received by your recipient per calendar, your recipient will need to present:

  • A government-issued ID, compliance form, “PEPS” document

The bank will contact your recipient to obtain the required documentation, which can be sent via email or directly at the bank.

If the amount exceeds 120,000 pesos in one calendar year, you must provide:

  • A government-issued ID
  • Compliance form
  • Proof of income

Once the documentation is received and approved, approval will be valid for 1 year.
