U.S. Citizen Services


U.S. Citizen Travelers: Given the possibility of delays in flights departing Argentina, please be sure to check your scheduled flights by calling 5480-6111, which directs inquiries to the correct airport office by a recorded message in English and Spanish.


U.S. citizens can apply for, renew or add extra pages to passports at the United States Embassy in Buenos Aires. In most cases, passports will be delivered within 15 days. For urgent travel, however, the Embassy can produce limited-validity emergency passports in as little as one day once requirements are met. Extra passport pages can usually be added in one business day.

If your passport has been lost or stolen, you can apply for a replacement without an appointment – simply stop by the Consular Section on any working day, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm. 

The American Citizens Services (ACS) Unit of the Consular Section provides a wide range of services to U.S. citizens visiting or residing in Argentina. 

So we can better serve you, we encourage you to register with the Embassy through the State Department website if you will be travelling or living in Argentina.
