Acquisition of Argentine Citizenship by a Child Born Abroad
Birth Abroad to Two Argentine Citizen Parents in Wedlock
To begin with, a child born abroad to two Argentine citizen parents acquires Argentine citizenship at birth provided that one of the parents had a residence in Argentina or one of its outlying possessions prior to the child’s birth. Also, the child is considered to be born in wedlock for the purposes of citizenship acquisition when the genetic and/or gestational parents are legally married to each other at the time of the child’s birth and both parents are the legal parents of the child under local law at the time and place of birth.
Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock
Actually, a child born abroad to one Argentine citizen parent and one alien parent acquires Argentina citizenship at birth provided the Argentine citizen parent was physically present in Argentina or one of its outlying possessions for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. Then, the Argentine citizen parent must be the genetic or the gestational parent and the legal parent of the child under local law at the time and place of the child’s birth to transmit Argentine citizenship.
Birth Abroad Out-of-Wedlock to an Argentine Citizen Father
As a matter of fact, a person born abroad out-of-wedlock to an Argentine citizen father may acquire Argentine citizenship provided:
- A blood relationship between the person and the father is established by clear and convincing evidence;
- The father had the nationality of Argentina at the time of the person’s birth;
- He was physically present in Argentina or its outlying possessions prior to the child’s birth
- Unless deceased, the has agreed in writing to provide financial support for the person until the person reaches the age of 18 years, and
- While the person is under the age of 18 years —
- the person is legitimated under the law of his/her residence or domicile,
- the father acknowledges paternity of the person in writing under oath, or
- the paternity of the person is established by adjudication of a competent court.

Additionally, a child born out-of-wedlock to an Argentine citizen father may acquire Argentine citizenship if the Argentine citizen father, prior to the child’s birth, had been physically present in Argentina or one of its outlying possessions.
Birth Abroad Out-of-Wedlock to an Argentine Citizen Mother:
A person born abroad out-of-wedlock to an Argentine citizen mother may acquireArgentine citizenship if the mother was an Argentine citizen at the time of the person’s birth and if the mother was physically present in Argentina or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the person’s birth. Likewise, the Argentine citizen mother must be the genetic or the gestational mother and the legal parent of the child under the local law at the time and place of the child’s birth to transmit Argentine citizenship.
Birth tourism: the best countries that give citizenship by birth
Birth tourism is simple: have a child in a country that provides benefits to all children born there and gives your child the passport you could never have. In many cases, parents of such children enjoy a faster naturalization timeline, as well.
Similarly, the process of “jus soli” is generally available to anyone who has a child on the territory of a birth tourism country, even if they are a temporary resident or (as is often bemoaned in the United States) an illegal alien. However, the only people whose children don’t qualify for instant citizenship are diplomats.
Next, here is the full list of the best countries in which to give birth when seeking birth tourism options, excluding countries where a ban on the practice is currently underway.

Documents for permanent residency application
Here are the documents that you MUST provide in order to apply for permanent residency:
- Your birth certificate from your state of birth, not a hospital copy. The certificate must be apostilled, and then translated and “stamped” by a college of translators in Argentina.
- FBI, or the equivalent national body, record check (for applicants 16 years of age or older). Apostilled and submitted within 6 months from the time it was issued. It must be translated in the same manner as the birth certificate. A state or province criminal check will not be accepted.
- Passport. Photocopy all pages, including blank pages. If the passport is the “old” type, you must get it translated. Don’t forget to get to bring the actual passport when submitting documents.
- Argentina criminal record check, called an “Antecedentes Penales” (for applicants 16 years of age or older). You will need to go to the federal police and get fingerprinted, and then you will need to download some payment coupons from the immigration website. Afterward, take these coupons to the Banco Nacional and pay the corresponding fee. Additionally, send your packet, including the coupons, to the address provided on your forms.
- If you are filing under ‘family status’ because you are either married to an Argentine or have a child (unmarried and under 18 years of age) who was born in Argentina, you will need the child’s/spouse’s national identity document (DNI) and copies of all pages. Then they may tell you to bring only the copies, but they will likely ask to see the original documents.
- If you are filing because you have a child born in Argentina, you will need to provide the child’s original birth certificate AND a copy. But, if you are filing because you are married, bring your original marriage certificate and a copy.
- Photos. Passport photos will not work because they are too large. A DNI photo is much smaller and requires a slight turn of the head. Find a photoshop in Argentina and have them do the photos for you. Also, ask specifically for DNI photos. They only asked me for one photo, but the website indicates that you should bring two.
- When you have submitted your paperwork and it appears that it is in order, they will hand you some payment coupons. Take these to the Banco Nacional and pay your 600 ARS fee. Then, bring the coupons back to the office immediately, and give them to the immigration officer.
- Certificate of domicile or an invoice of any public service with your name. Nevertheless, if you don’t have utilities in your name, the certificate is easily obtained by visiting the police station nearest your residence.
- Receive payment for work
- Obtain housing with the document
- Leave and reenter the country with the document.
