How to Get a Student Visa for Argentina

Argentina Student Visa

Argentina Student Visa

Are you interesting in studying in Argentina?  It is definitely a beautiful place and well worth it if you are interested in attending one of the schools down there (perhaps to study Spanish).

I’ve spent a significant amount of time in Buenos Aires and had a blast learning how to Tango.  Definitely take some Tango lessons if you ever have the chance to get down there.

Ok, so without further ado, let me get back to the steps for the Student Visa for Argentina.  The Argentina Student visa is valid for 6 months or 1 year.  You can apply for extensions at the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones in Argentina.

Go to my Argentina visa page for information on how to get a different type of visa to Argentina.

Obtain acceptance letter

If you don’t require a Tourist Visa to get into Argentina (this includes U.S. citizens), you will first need to get an official letter of admission/enrollment from recognized school/educational institution in Argentina.

If you do require a Tourist Visa to get into Argentina (this includes U.S. citizens), you will first need to get the school you will be attending to get approval from the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones in Argentina. Dirección Nacional de Migraciones in Argentina will inform your consulate directly.

Find your consulate
  • If you’re outside of the U.S.check at this site here.
  • If you’re inside the U.S., you can find your “Jurisdiction” (i.e. based on the State you live in) here.
Gather documentation
  • Gather the required documents/follow the procedures as stated on your consular’s website including the visa fee.
  • The required documents will vary from consulate to consulate, so either call the consulate in your jurisdiction or go to the visa and consulate section of their website to see the required documents and fees for this type of visa.
  • Using the New York consulate as a guideline, the steps would be similar to those here.
Submit information
  • Submit the information that you gathered in Step 3 to the consulate that you located in Step 2.
  • Depending on the consulate you might be required to make an appointment to apply in person or do an interview.
  • Your consulate website will have details on whether you will need to make an appointment in order to submit an application or if you can apply by mail.
Receive your visa

Congratulations! A fter a period of waiting, the Argentina Consulate/Embassy will give to you your brand new Argentina visa.
