DNI update

Updated date: 06/12/2019

Argentine DNI must be updated twice: for the first time when the child is 5 to 8 years old and for a second time when the child is 14 years old.

Both updates must be applied for at the Argentine Embassy in Sweden as long as the DNI holder lives in Sweden.

While the second update can be applied for by the DNI holder directly, the first update must be requested by the DNI holder’s parents.

Each update of the DNI brings about the issuance of new DNI card.

Fee: amount in SEK equivalent to USD 15 at the exchange rate valid on the processing day. If the DNI holder is already 9 years old by the time the first update is applied for or 15 years old by the time the second update is requested, an additional payment of USD 15 must be added. The exact amount in SEK will be informed at the Embassy.
