U.S. Citizen Services


The U.S. Embassy in Argentina is offering emergency appointments only for passport and citizenship services that require an in-person appearance. Please be aware that emergency appointment availability is extremely limited.

General Information

The. U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires provides a variety of emergency and non-emergency services, as well as helpful information, to U.S. citizens visiting or living in Argentina. Please review our website to familiarize yourself with the services we can and cannot offer.




If you arrive at the consulate for any non-emergency service without an appointment, you will be asked to return after securing one. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy, which will ensure that services are offered in a more efficient manner, with shorter wait times.

Please note that failure to renew a passport in a timely manner prior to your travel is not an emergency service, and you will need an appointment to receive a new passport. 

When making your appointment, please note that “Other Services” do not include consultations about visas or federal benefits (i.e. social security). 

If you have questions regarding an immigrant visa petition for a relative, please contact BuenosAires-IV@state.gov.

If the answer to your question is not found on our website, email us at BuenosAires-ACS@state.gov.
