    Slightly unrelated to the original post but I noticed that everyone is saying they only received the tarjeta DNI...I got mine about 1 month ago via temporary residency/work visa, and I only got the libreta, no card at all... Anyone else get this or is mine just random?

    Question answered myself! DNI was waiting for me today with the portero, apparently the midday temporary woman had received it on Friday for me without me knowing and without previously warning anyone that it would be coming... so I personally did not need a receipt or need to sign anything when...

    DNI LIST (the queso grande of all DNI questions for US citizens)

    When applying for a work visa with a company sponsoring you (aka they provide a contract and have proof of being registerd with afip and renure), you do NOT need your birth certificate. I have been doing this process during the last month and they did not ask me for this when I went to Migraciones.

    Should I Do a Visa Run?

    This is somewhat related-- I'm in the process of getting a work visa (have job, FBI report, birth certificate all ready) but have overstayed my tourist visa. I'm assuming that if I want to get the work visa I'll need to have a valid tourist stamp in my passport, no? Anyone been through this...

    Best bank for low international atm fees?

    I actually just switched to Charles Schwabb...the only "catch" with them is that you have to open a brokerage account along with your checking account. However, they say on their website that you don't actually have to use the brokerage account, so it's not really a catch at all. I opened my...
