We successfully helped thousands of Foreigners to get Argentinian Citizenship By Naturalization.

Citizenship By Naturalization, is legal procedure that is conducted solely in the Argentine federal courts, resulting in the acquisition of an Argentine Citizenship.

Required Documents for Argentine Citizenship:


1) Must be at least 18 years old.

2) A continuous and documented two-year residency in Argentina, verified by the National Immigration Directorate (this requirement is waived if you are married to an Argentine citizen and/or have Argentine children).

3) An officially legalized birth certificate, with an Apostille and/or International Legalization as necessary.

4) Your Argentinian ID card (DNI) or your International Passport.

5) A police clearance certificate from your home country and other countries you’ve lived in for more than 6 months in the last 3 years. Make sure these documents are Apostilled. We have to wait for the court to indicate it to us because it has an expiration date. 

6) A non-criminal record certificate from Argentina’s National Registry. You’ll need to book an appointment, get fingerprinted, and you will receive the results via email immediately.

7) Proof of your address in Argentina, like a rental contract or utility bills, or/and certificate obtained from your local police station. To prove an address in Federal Capital you can obtain a certificate of domicile from the PFA (Policía Federal Argentina)(which is only valid for 5 days). You can get it in the police station of your neighborhood. 

8) Proof of means of livelihood: pay stubs (with the employer’s signature certified by the bank with which the company operates), or proof of monotributo plus invoices and certificate of income issued by a public accountant.

9) If you have Argentine children, include photocopies of their birth certificates and a certificate from the Immigration Directorate. 

10) You have be able to understand and speak basics of the national language. At least at a level to understand what the court is saying to you when you go to oath or vowe before Carta de Ciudania. 

Two forms to be filled out with certain information (which we will give you later).

The process takes approximately one year or one year and a half. 

The presence of the applicant is required obligatorily in three moments/opportunities during the obtaining of the citizenship since is a personal procedure

1. During the application/submission
2. During making criminal records
3. And for the oath

You should sign a document to designate our lawyer as your legal advisor so that he/she is linked to the file and I can control its movements.

Once the legal process is finished, you will have to process in the administrative office the DNI with the letter of citizenship and then you will be able to obtain the Argentine passport.

For this process we can also assist and accompany you.

Finally, bear in mind that the DNI number changes Temporary DNI to Permanent DNI, and this may affect other documentation.
