    Dungeons and Dragons group for kids in Buenos Aires?

    Hi all, Anyone know of a kids D&D group in Buenos Aires? My 12-year-old still plays every weekend via Zoom with his friends from California, but I'd love to get him connected with a local group. We're in Escobar but I'm guessing most groups are playing remotely these days.

    Certificado de Domicilio/Declaración Jurada de Domicilio

    Thanks to everyone who answered! My brother-in-law hooked me up with someone in migraciones who told me that because I'm married to an Argentine, I just needed a phone bill in my husband's name with our address. I still have to get the translation of my marriage certificate legalized by the...

    Certificado de Domicilio/Declaración Jurada de Domicilio

    Too bad I don't live in CABA. Just to be sure, I went to the police station in Escobar today and they told me they haven't done them since 2006. Then I went to the municipal offices and they told me that they're only doing them online right now:-( I'm going to try to get one of our bills...

    Certificado de Domicilio/Declaración Jurada de Domicilio

    Sadly the police don’t do the declaraciones juradas anymore in GBA. Or at least that’s what I’ve been told. I have a number of in-laws with addresses in CABA that I could use but I can’t hang out at their homes until the police decide to visit. Especially during the pandemia. Did they tell you...

    Certificado de Domicilio/Declaración Jurada de Domicilio

    Hi all, Can anyone advise on getting a certificado de domicilio to submit with my application for permanent residence? I'm in Escobar. One can no longer these by going to the local police station. I was told I had to go the website for the Provincia de Buenos Aires, Registro de las Personas...

    Permanent Residency Interview (Marriage) in the US

    Hi, Sorry I'm just responding. I'm not on this site regularly. I'm not sure what they require at the embassy as my experience has been while in Argentina. You should call them to find out. Good luck!

    Permanent Residency Interview (Marriage) in the US

    You also need to have your birth certificate and an FBI background check, both apostilled. Those will then need to be translated by a public translator once you get here.

    Permanent Residency Interview (Marriage) in the US

    Translated and apostilled. And don't bother getting it translated in the U.S. It's more expensive AND they won't accept it here. It has to be translated by a Traductor Publico: https://www.traductores.org.ar

    Refrigerator recommendations?

    We have to buy a refrigerator for our new place and I’m feeling clueless about which brands are good here. Even when it comes to brands I recognize from the US, the models here are often different and even the same models may be of differing quality. We don’t want something super fancy but we...

    Travel Requirements With Non-Argentine Children...

    So, I’m pretty sure my experience is atypical but I once traveled with my son out of Argentina on Copa without my husband. I had to show only our son’s passport and not the birth certificate. Son is a US citizen, not yet Argentine. I’m a US citizen. My husband is a citizen of Argentina. My son...

    Best U.S.-based bank for expats in Argentina

    Having searched the forum, it looks like Charles Schwab is the best option because they refund ATM transaction fees: https://baexpats.org/threads/which-atm-can-i-get-cash-out-of-with-an-american-debit-card-fidelity-or-charles-schwab.40798/page-2 Has anyone had any negative experiences with...

    Best U.S.-based bank for expats in Argentina

    Thanks for the info, especially about Citibank, as I hadn't known they had closed. And about using Transfer Wise. Although I'd be interested to hear whether anyone has done large transfers with them--i.e. the amount of money one might need to purchase real property. I probably wasn't entirely...

    Best U.S.-based bank for expats in Argentina

    Hi, We are moving to Argentina this fall. I think Citibank is the only U.S.-based bank with a location/ATMs in Argentina. Do any of you have recommendations and/or warnings about specific U.S.-based banks in terms of accessing one's money while living in Argentina? In particular, I'm thinking...

    Schools for children with ADHD?

    Hi, My Argentine husband and I are moving to Buenos Aires this September with our 11-year-old son. I've begun the process of looking for a bilingual school for him. He has ADHD, inattentive type. He attends a private elementary school here and generally does well, but his teachers are aware...
