    Preferred Method Of Receiving Salary

    During my 8 years of transferring my monthly (USD) salary in Argentina I mainly used method 3, until they increased their fees from 1% to 4%. Then I got lucky and found an American with a business Argentina who needs to transfer regular dollar amounts to the US and switched to method 4. He...

    Getting around DNI with Flights

    I'm sorry, but you couldn't be more wrong if you tried! Argentines and foreign permanent residents pay a lot less for internal flights. I've taken a lot of internal flights, the last time being a couple of weeks ago, and I've been asked to prove my residency EVERY time - both at the travel...

    Los paises mas corruptos del mundo

    So....the list, ranking corrupt countries - that's connected to New Zealand's historical alignment/involvement in past wars, how, exactly? Hey cabrera, here's a challenge for you - if I start a thread titled "Pink is a nicer colour than orange", how long will it take you to accuse me of...

    200 Years

    Ha, ha, ha, ha! As always, quality posting cabrera - comedy gold! Here's a tip for you - click on your own name and then click on "find all posts by cabrera." What you'll find is a very long list of name-calling, racist, abusive and reactionary nonsense. Nothing helpful. No advice. Nothing...

    Renting: short or long

    Definitely 'illegal'....though that doesn't mean it's necessarily a bad idea! It states in my contract that the dueño has the right to visit me once a month to check that I'm looking after the place and that it is just me living here. He's never actually been here in the 6 months since I moved...

    200 Years

    Who says they choose to live here? I don't choose to live here....I'd be on the next plane out of here if I had a choice! And although I've made it public knowledge previously, it's not really any of your business as to why. I'm guessing that if somebody really does hate living here (as opposed...

    200 Years

    Well, despite the fact that brocolliandtea is clearly a pretty sad individual, who probably lives a dark, lonely and miserable life and who never appears to have anything helpful or useful to contribute to this forum....I'm afraid I have to defend his/her right to express themselves here without...

    what does the "expat community" think about the Bicentenario?

    Well, to be fair on the original poster, s/he did address the issue specifically to the "expat community".....and this is an expats forum after all! No harm in us debating amongst ourselves.* ;-) * Sheesh....if only that were actually true eh?

    what does the "expat community" think about the Bicentenario?

    Hey, it's 200 years....what's not to celebrate! That article on the other hand, isn't really about celebrating it or not - it's a critique of Argentina's political history and incumbent government. Very, very interesting and extremely well written though.
