Our Visit to the Argentina Embassy

We finally went to the Embassy of Argentina located in Dela Costa Street today. We only have our documents checked, want to make sure we have the right documents before our very schedule of interview, Monday 10:00am. Due to the last minute document requirement that the Argentina Embassy asked from us that needs to be signed and notarized in Mendoza, Argentina,  the processing of our visa is delayed. With almost a week left, we just hope there will be enough time for our visa to be processed and released before our scheduled departure date for the expedition. Crossing our finger on a speedy processing of our visa.

The original list of requirements for Argentina Embassy:
1. Duly accomplished application form
2. One passport size photo, pasted on the application form
3. Valid passport and photocopy of the information page
4. Letter of request stating the reason for the visit

Additional Requirement(since they find out our purpose of the trip)

Just be kind and friendly to the lady in the front desk. Despite her stoic and flat sounding on the phone, she's accommodating and helpful in person.
