If you arrive at the consulate for any non-emergency passport service without an appointment, you will be asked to return after securing an appointment. 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.
U.S. citizens can apply for, renew or add extra pages to passports at the United States Embassy in Buenos Aires with an appointment. In most cases, passports will be delivered within two weeks, and extra passport pages can usually be added the same day.
