If you are outside of Argentina and need to execute a power of attorney to be presented before argentine authorities, you may request a Power of Attorney at your nearest consular offices.
However, if unable to appear in person at the Consulate, you may sign your Power of Attorney before a Notary Public and finalize the process by requesting an Apostille at the FCO. 



The grantor of power must be over 18 years old and can only request the document in person at this Consulate.

The original notarial certificate with the grantor´s signature is kept for our records in our offices. You will receive the first notarial certified copy (called ‘primer testimonio’) one or two days after of your appointment.

You will be charged for the notarial certificate and the first notarial certified copy; the fees are per page which can include up to 25 lines each. Payments should be made only by debit card on the day of the appointment.

Once you received the first notarial certified copy,  you will have to certify the Consul's signature at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Argentina  (Esmeralda 1212, Ciudad de Buenos Aires Argentina).
