Instructions for regular passports:

1 | Find out whether or not you need visa to enter Argentina.

-Holders of Swedish regular passports do not need visa to enter Argentina as tourists or to conduct business or unpaid cultural or artistic activities, provided that the length of stay in Argentina is up to 90 days.

They do require visa when they intend to conduct other activities as well as when they expect to receive a payment and when the length of stay in Argentina will be longer than 90 days.

-Holders of passports issued by states other than Sweden may check out here whether or not they need visa.

In all cases, foreign passports must be still valid for at least 6 months counting from the date of arrival in Argentina.

If you need Argentine visa, go to 2.

2 | Find out the type and category of visa that you need and the Argentine Embassy or Consulate where you must apply for it.

To that end, check out here chart 1 – Visa categories.

If you must apply for visa at the Argentine Embassy in Sweden, go to 3.

If you must apply for visa at another Argentine Embassy or Consulate, please contact that office directly.

To find out the documents required, check out here chart 2 – Required documents.

Note [A]: the visa application e-mail must be received at least 15 days before your departure date from Sweden if you hold a Swedish passport and at least 90 days before if you hold a passport issued by states other than Sweden.

Note [B]: in some cases, an inviting party from Argentina may have already submitted your visa application at the Immigration Department (Dirección Nacional de Migraciones). If so, just inform this circumstance in your e-mail.

5 | Wait for the Embassy’s feedback, which will be emailed to you within two working days. This email may contain details about an appointment made for the consular interview.

If according to chart 2 - Required documents you need an invitation letter sent by an inviting party in Argentina to the Embassy and the letter has not yet been received, the Embassy will email you back to inform that the visa procedure will be suspended until the reception of the letter.

6 | Attend the interview appointment bringing along the originals of all documents needed for the visa applied for according to chart 2 – Required documents (above).

Embassy staff will examine the documents and will later require you to pay the visa fee.

The fee to be paid will be the amount in SEK equivalent to the amount in USD stated in chart 1 – Visa categories at the exchange rate valid on the payment day. The exact SEK amount will be informed by the Embassy.

Note that it is under your responsibility to submit at the Embassy all the documents required for your visa according to chart 2 – Required documents. If any of the documents is missing, the application will be suspended until the submission of the documentation.

7 | Attend the consular interview, which will take place at the Embassy right after payment.

If you hold a Swedish passport, the Embassy will inform you whether the visa has been approved or rejected right after the interview. If approved, it will also require your passport to stamp the visa.

If you do not hold a Swedish passport, in some cases the Embassy will only inform you the date in which the decision will be communicated. This communication will be made by e-mail.

Note: in case of temporary or permanent visa, prior to the issuance of the visa you will be required to pay an additional immigration tax of USD 600 and a settlement fee of USD 100.

The immigration tax must be paid online by credit card following these instructions.

The settlement fee must be paid in SEK at the branch of SEB bank close to the Embassy. The exact amount will be determined according to the exchange rate SEK/USD on the payment day and will be informed by the Embassy.

Applicants for work & holiday visa are exempted to pay both taxes.

Members of religions officially recognized in Argentina are exempted to pay this tax, as well as applicants under 18 years old who will travel with their parents and applicants for whom a third party has started visa application in Argentina.

The settlement fee must be paid in SEK at the SEB branch near the Embassy. The exact amount will be determined by the exchange rate SEK/USD on the payment date and will be informed by the Embassy.
