Updated: May 31, 2020
When a foreign national wishes to enter Argentina, certain permissions must first be obtained. If an individual has not first secured a travel visa, entry into the country may be delayed or denied, even if all other travel documentation is in order. As a result, it is critically important to speak with an attorney experienced in immigration matters as soon as you have made plans to come to the Argentina.
A number of different visa options may be relevant to your situation. An attorney will be able to help you sort out which visa you should apply for.
Once a decision in regard to visa type has been made, a lawyer will be able to help you navigate the process of securing supporting documentation, prepare you for an interview (when applicable), help you fill out other necessary paperwork and generally progress through the visa application process without unnecessary delay. It is generally a good idea to speak with an attorney about your plans as soon as they have been made, as you must submit your visa application within a specific window of time before you intend to travel. If you wait too long to begin preparing, you may not be able to travel during the dates you had originally anticipated. Time-related challenges can be particularly pressing for individuals who intend to visit Argentina for a short, specific period of time, as opposed to those who hope to stay for much longer and who may be able to be flexible about their date of entry into the country.
