 I just printed our receipts. For payment of the Argentia Reciprocity fee and noticed that I made an error on the passport number.  Several phone calls and e- mails have not solved the problem.  I can pay the $160 again but does anyone know who to contact to fix this?

I can't help you with your question but it gives me another opportunity to remind all travelers that the fee is currently good for 10 years.  I found out the hard way--on my trip to Antarctica I paid it again for the two of us and it was not until I returned that I found out that I could have avoided a second fee. It was on this forum that someone posted the information and I learned of my mistake...Hopefully, with this information in advance nobody else will make the costly mistake that I did!

Just wondering -- if I have a renewed passport and the reciprocity stamp is in my old passport, should I take both passports to the entry point or how is that handled?  Since the stamp is good for ten years and the passport is as well, surely folks run into this regularly.

Poorgirl, I would take both. You show your passport and stamp going through immigration; I don't know how else you could prove that you already have the stamp if you don't bring your expired passport.
