A temporary passport is issued to Argentine Citizens who do not have their DNI (green booklet) and for those who are under removal order by Migration Authorities. This passport is valid only for 60 days from the date of issuance and to travel only to Argentina. It can be used only once and it is not valid for entering the United States of America or any other country which requires tourist/transit visa for Argentine Passport Holders.
We recommend that the applicant get a direct flight to Argentina or if it includes some stops in between, to find out that the countries involved do not require a tourist/transit visa.
An appointment must be booked in advance since the applicant must come personally to be fingerprinted at this Consulate the date of the appointment because we need his/her fingerprints to be printed for both the Passport and its correspondent forms.
For this purpose, the applicant may call us or send an e-mail. In any case, the applicant must complete this form on line (one per person) and send it to us personally or via e-mail. The applicant must check the box "expedición de pasaporte". We will assign the appointment within 5 working days from the date of the arrival of this form. If you haven't received our response within these days, please contact us or send the form on line again.
