    Rentista Visa

    I know someone here who just got pensionado permanent residency and had never had a bank account here.

    Rentista Visa

    Alby makes a good point, something that I did not clarify, we could not open a bank account here until we had ready been granted residency and had a DNI. For the Argentine consulate in Atlanta it was enough that we open the HSBC account in the States for us to be given the papers we needed to be...

    Rentista Visa

    I meant to say no intrabank transfers were possible.

    Rentista Visa

    When we got our rentista visa/residency in 2016 through the Argentine consulate where we were living in the States, Atlanta, they told us only that we needed an account with a bank in the US that also had a present in Argentina. I don't remember them saying the accounts at the two banks had to...

    Refrigerator recommendations?

    We have a six year old Whirlpool whose plaqueta (circuit board, I guess) we've just had to replace. The part itself cost only 50 bucks and our encargado put it in for free. A reputable repair company was going to charge me 200 bucks (with the part included). A couple of times since it has...

    DNI

    If you go to the Jujuy Renaper office, don't forget to take the receipt showing that you paid for the DNI. Otherwise, they won't let you in the door.

    DNI

    When I said failed delivery attempt, I meant the first time they tried to deliver it. They try twice before they send it to Jujuy. They tried on a Monday. Even though I went down, they said they needed a constancia that we were never given or a copy of her precaria, which I didn't have on me. CA...

    DNI

    The nine digit number they gave us at the Av. Jujuy Renaper office works with the seguimiento feature of CA. I just put my wife's number in and the entire history of the failed delivery attempt and then the successful attempt came up. The system automatically adds three zeros before the nine...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    I know this is suppose to be a joke, but I think it's in very bad taste (and no, I'm not being politically correct). Like Mexicans don't have enough problems, without you implying they are all a bunch of drunks.

    DNI

    As far as I know you can use only the 9 digit number that they give you at the Renaper office on Av. Jujuy to track your DNI, and that's only with Correo Argentino (or maybe one of the other postal services) once it's been issued.

    There I think there are always taxis there when the ships come in, at least there were last year about this time of year.

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    I know this thread is not about this topic, so I'll make this comment and then stop. I too think it's nonsense. I just wish that people who embrace it would realize the far reaching consequences. I bet the day is coming when students may refuse to learn another language or schools refuse to...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    Of all the talk of Coronavirus in this thread, what concerns/scares me the most is that the young (I guess Canadian) woman on the plane told you were practicing cultural appropriation by learning Spanish, someone else's language. I know you all are going to say, but she's an extremist. But why...

    5 Americans rejected at the border yesterday

    Here's the link to the La Nacion article I referenced, which it looks like was actually from BBC Mundo. https://www.lanacion.com.ar/economia/los-tres-paises-america-latina-cobran-impuesto-nid2325219 And this the quote in which Belgium is mentioned as one of the four European which still has a...

    Argentina's New Tax On Residents Global Wealth

    Are you really calling fear mongers people who are afraid of having to pay corrupt govts a ridiculous percentage of their lifetime accumulation of assets and who are just looking for honest answers to questions about new legislation? For me a fear monger is someone who spreads fear just for the...
