Argentina Power of Attorney Form

There are currently 2 options for POAs in Argentina:

1. Through an Argentinean Consulate

POA needs attestation from a notary or government official. Then, the POA must be legalized before the Argentinean Consulate in your country.

Afterwards, the document should be sent to the mailing address indicated by us. This is usually an address different than our headquarters in Buenos Aires.

This is the lengthier standard procedure. It should only be used when the Apostille procedure is not available. You may look for the Argentinean Consulate in your country, by clicking here.

What to do when there’s no such Consulate in your country? learn more.

2. Through an Apostille.

Argentina is party to the Hague Apostille Convention. If your country is also a contracting party,

an Apostille is sufficient for the required POA. The POA needs attestation from a notary or government official. Then, the POA must be taken to the competent authority to issue an Apostille.

Afterwards, the document should be sent to the mailing address indicated by us. This is usually an address different than our headquarters in Buenos Aires.

This is the simplest and most effective procedure.
