Once on the bus remind the drivers you need to get off at the Brazilian border to stamp out of Brazil otherwise they might not stop. The bus will not wait for you, but the driver will give you a ticket to catch the next bus. Important to note that there are two companies who do this route and the ticket they give you is only valid for the same company so note the name on the bus you just got off.
The average waiting time for the next bus is 40 minutes, and you need to get off again to do the Argentine border procedures. This time the bus will wait a few minutes for you if there are no queues at immigration, and then continue to the Puerto Iguazu bus terminal.
