U.S. Citizen Services

Dear Consular Customer,

Effective 23 August 2016, the Argentine government has removed the reciprocity fee requirement for U.S. passport holders traveling to Argentina for periods of less than 90 days for tourist or business purposes.

Welcome to the American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires.

  • To make an appointment to register the birth of your child, please e-mail BuenosAires-ACS@state.gov.
  • To schedule an appointment for a passport, notary, or other service provided by the ACS Unit, click here.

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).

How Can We Help You?

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.
