Notarize United States documents at the US Embassy in Argentina
To notarize a document at the United States Embassy in Argentina , it is important to schedule an appointment in advance.

It is advisable to plan ahead and book an appointment to ensure that the notarization process goes smoothly. However, if the document that requires notarization is time-sensitive and waiting for an embassy appointment is not feasible, then it may be faster to opt for an online notarization or remote ink notarization service. These services allow for the notarization to be completed remotely and can be scheduled quickly to accommodate urgent requests.
