    I got my citizenship after 6 years

    Thanks so much, Camel. Your honesty and candor about the trials and tribulations of your path to citizenship is a real contribution to this community.

    I got my citizenship after 6 years

    Thanks a lot for all your posts on this subject. I have been coming here since 1996 on the average twice a year, have no irregularities on my record, and now have permanent residency. I don't know that I will ever apply for citizenship but I think it's important to be as clear as possible about...

    I got my citizenship after 6 years

    Thanks for your reply. Is it true, though, that it takes those with overstays, visaruns, etc.(irregularities but not major issues like the cases you mention above) longer to get citizenship than those who have played by the rules and also gotten permanent residency? And if it take those with...

    I got my citizenship after 6 years

    Please let us know at some point why those were "zombie" cases and how long they ended up taking. I think people would like to know what they are up against and how long it might take, even though it sounds like you are saying it's going to take less time now.

    Anti-government protesters defy virus lockdown to rally

    I guess democratic institutions like the justice system don't matter to you.

    "The Political Plot and The Economic Lobby Behind the Vaccine"

    Interesting that those two rag sheets and their reporters win international journalism awards every year. Would their center-right editorial line have anything to do with your evaluation? Do you consider Página 12 an example of good journalism here?

    Citizenship timeline

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but in other threads about citizenship I seem to remember discussion about the courts giving precedence- basically processing much more quickly- the applications of those that had played by the rules (no visa overstays or visa runs) and those that had first gotten...

    US recipients of SS payments

    Just wanted to share our experience. I called the IRS yesterday and had to wait only between five and ten minutes. A super nice young man assisted me. Our first checks were mailed on May 5 to Argentina, were returned to the IRS, reissued and mailed again to Argentina the first part of July...

    Can you apply for a Work/Student Visa after entering on a Tourist Visa?

    My wife and I did all the paperwork in 2016 for a rentista residency through the Argentine consulate in our city. I'm glad we went that route. They were super helpful and allowed me to do all the translations myself, no certified translator needed, unlike in Argentina. I think it's a much easier...

    Are you illegal while waiting for residency?

    Can't you go to the nearest police station and tell them you need a certificado de domicilio and they'll come by your house/apt in a few days and give you one? Also, if I'm not mistaken, Artisan said that he uploaded a bill with his name and address and that they accepted that. I will tell you...

    Are you illegal while waiting for residency?

    I got my disposición saying that I had been granted permanent residency mid Feb. The date of issue of my DNI: May 1. Date of delivery: June 3. 3 1/2 months.

    Are you illegal while waiting for residency?

    When they delivered my wife's DNI, they asked for the constancia or her precaria. We did not have a constancia, so she gave him her precaria. They had incorrect information on that (new) DNI, but after she went to Renaper on Yrigoyen to request a second, correct DNI, they gave her a constancia...

    Policy regarding repatriated Argentine nationals and Permanent Residents

    My wife arrived here from the States three weeks ago today and only had to self quarentine, no hotel stay. The policy had changed the week before. She did have to sign an affidavit saying that she would self- quarentine for 14 days. A week or so in someone from migraciones stopped by ostensibly...

    Argentinian government is taking over Vicentin?

    How would you describe her, as honest, ethical and caring? I think you are forgetting that 41% of Argentines voted for Macri after he has royally messed up the economy, not that he was handed an economy in great shape. Given how badly he screwed up, it's amazing that so many people would...

    So where does one find tracking number for DNI?

    It's a number that Renaper has to give you. During normal circumstances they'll give it to you over the phone or you can get it in person at their AV. Jujuy office, but neither one of those are functioning right now, or they weren't as of a couple of weeks ago. Renaper responds to some emails...

    Western Union money transfer

    I would suggest that you load all the receiver information requested in the WU app before you go to get the money. I say that because if you go the main office at Montevideo and Cordoba, there is a special and much shorter line for those who have used the app, either as senders or receivers.

    Western Union money transfer

    I have transferred through my laptop, from the WU website, without a problem. Others have said that they had problems on their phones, using the WU app. Also, is this a straight bank account to bank account transfer, or is is debit card to bank account transfer? Some have said that they had to...

    Alberto Fernández does not lie

    He has done so many flip flops on the corruption of the Kirchners that it's hard to take him seriously on the issue of not lying. Hard to believe that he just "reconsidered" his position on all that corruption, especially when there is more evidence against the Kirchners now than when he made...

    Transferring money into Argentina to buy a flat

    That's right, I transferred dollars from my bank account in US to (first time) a bank account in Hong Kong and (second time) a bank account in NY. I then a week or so later picked up dollars here in the cueva's office. It's a cueva that an Argentine friend had used a number of times to...
