Argentine Embassies and Consulates abroad cannot register marriages that take place outside of the Argentine territory.
For a marriage that took place abroad to take effect in Argentina, the marriage certificate must be registered by the Civil Registry in Argentina.
A person can require that registration at any Argentine court, either personally in Argentina or through a third party to whom he/she must grant a power of attorney. Find here instructions to sign power of attorney.
In order to get the marriage registered, the person will be required to submit the following documents:
- Original marriage certificate, already legalized at the country where the marriage took place. If the marriage took place in Sweden, the document to be submitted is a personbevis and the legalization must be conducted with apostille by a notary public.
- Spanish translation of the legalized marriage certificate, signed by an official translation from Argentina.
