The processing time for an Argentine visa largely depends on the embassy or consulate where you apply. Some consulates promise that the visa will be processed in as little as one week, while others will take longer. Nonetheless, it is recommended that you apply for your Argentine visa at least 45 days prior to departure.
Before submitting the required documents, you must contact the Argentine embassy or consulate in your country that is responsible for processing visa applications. If there is no Argentinian diplomatic representation in your country, you may be required to apply in a neighbouring nation.

What to do if your Argentina visa is refused?
You have the ability to challenge this verdict. A standard form is given by the embassy of the Member State that chose to deny the visa in order to inform the applicant of the Argentina visa denial decision and the reasons for the refusal. People regularly ask us how we can “guarantee” the issuance of a visa. Because all final decisions are made by embassies, there is no way to obtain a 100 percent guarantee. All you can do is ensure that your application is as strong as possible. Please feel free to contact with us if your visa request was rejected.
