We develop political, cultural, economic and commercial ties to improve Britain and Argentina's relationship.

We contribute towards increasing bilateral trade and investment and by promoting sustainable, low carbon economic growth . We champion UK values and work with a wide range of Argentine organisations and institutions who share similar values in areas such as human rights, climate change and science and innovation.

We provide consular assistance for British nationals, offering help appropriate to each individual circumstance.

Our services

Emergency travel document

We may be able to provide an emergency travel document if you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel. If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, you should contact the British Embassy Buenos Aires as soon as possible.

For all other applications, please check what you must bring with you and then make an appointment at your nearest consulate using the links below. Please call your nearest consulate for advice before making an appointment if:

  • you have never applied for a British passport before
  • you are applying on behalf of a child

An emergency travel document does not guarantee entry to every country. Read what an emergency travel document does. You are advised to obtain a police report for a lost passport as well as for a stolen passport as the Argentine authorities will request to see it on departure.

Book an appointment for an emergency travel document at the British Embassy Buenos Aires.
