The rule is that as long as your Argentinian Reciprocity Fee/ETA is valid and you have the expired passport with the sticker on it, you may show this to the Immigration Officers as prove of payment when you arrive in Argentina.

NOTE - Make sure that your Reciprocity Fee Stamp is not the entry stamp into Argentina, this will not be accepted.
