    Divorcing In Argentina

    Hello! Would anyone know if it’s possible as a UK expat to divorce here in Argentina even if the marriage took place in the UK? My husband and I amicably separated in 2005 while we were travelling in South America. He stayed in Colombia and I eventually settled here. He’s originally from...

    Montributo - How The Do You Sort It Out?

    Also, did the doctor tell you when you should go for the test? If you’re female, for some hormones you need to do the test between days 3 to 6 of your monthly cycle. I was sent home when I first went as my doctor had failed to tell me that important bit of info and I had to go back 3 weeks later!

    Foreigners And Their Right To Vote

    Monotributo And Recidencia?

    Hi Carina, Unfortunately you can't. How did you get your temporary residency? Was it through a contract with a company?

    I second Birgit! She's incredible and is doing an excellent job fixing a couple of major long-term problems I have with my neck and lower back. She uses that plunger you mention (affectionately known as her 'pistola') as well as acupuncture too...

    Patagonia Expat

    I'd love to live in the south....the ideal for me would be to spend the winters and autumn here in the city and spring and summer somewhere in the Rio Negro province. I’ve spent a lot of time there as my Argentine partner is from Cipolletti and still has work there so we tend to escape the city...
