The visto (seen) consists of a procedure alternative to legalization by which the Embassy does not certify the authenticity of a document but only ascertains that it actually passed through the Embassy.
The document submitted for visto must meet the following requirements:
- Be in Spanish or English, or have a translation into one of these languages.
- Not to be contrary to the Argentine public order.
- Commercial document (includes certificate of origin, commercial invoice, price list, etc.): USD 200.
- Another public or private document: USD 100.
The fee is paid in SEK at the exchange rate valid on the day when the document is submitted for seen. The exact amount in SEK is informed by the Embassy.
