U.S. Citizen Services
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).
