Step 1: Paid 270ARG for our van to be inspected and fumigated.
Step 2: Officer asked if we could open one door to check the van. We offered the back door and he named out loud the things he saw..."tools, bed, closet...do you have a fridge? Can I see it?" He entered the van, we opened the fridge, and two bell peppers. "Any other vegetables?" I pointed to the one tomato and half avocado on the door. "Any fruit?" I said no (but we had some somewhere else). He said "Next time do not bring any bell peppers to Mendoza".
Step 3: Passed through the fumigation point. It only hits the bottom of the vehicle.
