    Need Spanish speaker to help me to move to BA

    Yes, I did and her one time visit rate was very low. She is now a very successful professional in another field and her rate is higher now. Nonetheless, with the Radex system it´s now possible to do almost everything on line and by the time one goes to migraciones with the paperwork, anyone...

    Need Spanish speaker to help me to move to BA

    I´m sure you meant to ask if I can help this lady.... Unfortunately, I live in Buenos Aires, 650 KM from Capital Federal.

    Need Spanish speaker to help me to move to BA

    For those who may not have read through the entire thread... Beginning on Sept 11... And today this... It is abundantly clear from seloque´s posts that she, and yes, I assume she is female, is moving to be near her daughter and does not want to burden her daughter or her daughter´s new...

    Re-entering as a tourist after Temporary Residence

    I suggest you go to the court and get a list of the requirements and ask this question there. Based on my own experience, you will need a licensed Argentine accountant to write a declaration¨which provides the details of your income, based on as much proof as you can provide. The proof can...

    Best country to move to when life in Argentina becomes intolerable .

    it isn't difficult to get an FM3 visa to stay year round in Mexico. I lived in Sayulita for five and a half years before coming to Argentina in 2006. I have no desire to return, even for a brief visit.

    Best country to move to when life in Argentina becomes intolerable .

    Given the name of this site, i assume the question is directed toward expats who have the ability to move to another country when life in Argentina becomes intolerable. With that in mind, I'd be interested in hearing from other expats what it would take for them to be unable to tolerate life...

    2019 Real estate sales historic low

    I believe the peso will continue to fall in value and, as Perry suggests, that could result in lower dollar prices for properties in the next few years. I think anyone who wants to sell and get out of the Argentine real estate market in the next two years should try to sell now (at a reasonable...

    Proof of source of funds - Rentista visa

    I have suggested using funds in an irrevocable trust for many years, but I don't know of anyone else who has applied for and received the "visa rentista" using one. When I first applied for temporary residency in 2006, I provided a copy of the trust with a cover letter from the lawyer who set...

    Proof of source of funds - Rentista visa

    It may still be $30.000 per family, but, based on what Steph was told at the consulate, it may now be $90.000 pesos per family. The last two monthly income requirement increases occurred without any advance notice and, in both cases, the migraciones website was not immediately updated to...

    Proof of source of funds - Rentista visa

    If someone at he Argentine consulate told you it's $90.000 pesos per month, they were either (1) wrong about the income requirement applying to each family member, (2) there has been a change in the policy and now it does, or (3) there has finally been and increase in the monthly amount...

    It's for all three of you.

    Proof of source of funds - Rentista visa

    The current monthly income requirement is $30.000 pesos, but an increase is long overdue. When it was raised to that level it was the equivalent of about $2,000 USD per month. The previous level was $8.000 and when that went into effect in 2010 (?) it was the equivalent of about $2,000 USD per...

    You're welcome I don't know how to pay the fee online but you might try a Google search while you wait for someone else to help.

    ¿Online Overstay Fee

    Though it's been a couple years, the only time I know of this happening, the individual who did not pay the overstay fine when leaving and did not pay it before attempting to return, was deported "immediately" after his arrival at EZE. Things could have changed since then, but in order to get...

    Is your purchasing power up?

    Probably not so much in Salta, unless your on your way to the airport, trying to get there when the protesters are out in full force. This will happen in many parts of the world during the next decade, as cold weather crop losses drastically reduce the food supply. Watch out indeed...
