    Local Salary - bad idea?

    I am a repat Argie and I agree with Sara's figures. I know of a few Argie friends who have those types of income. There is a wide range, though... One should look at it case by case... Person #1, 30-year-old, economics college degree, earning $10,000/month at the national version of the IRS. He...

    International moving companies: need recommendations

    Thanks a lot again! I am posting the follow-up in case it can be helpful to someone in the future: I called them up and it is indeed more expensive to send the stuff through them than to pay the extra weight charge with the airline, as I have too little stuff (well, compared to moving a whole...

    How tough is it to go and live in the USA

    I also agree with most of the posters here. I am a Ph.D. in ed student in California and a US naturalized citizen. I am also an Arg repat. Several of my classmates have arrived at the university with a student visa and, some of them, have met their US husbands or wives once they were there. You...

    Would anyone be interested in a fiction writers group?

    Please keep me posted, too. I am working on my Ph.D. (in education&linguistics) qualifying exam papers and, later this year, on my thesis, so I will also enjoy talking with other people about my writing (for clarity purposes, mainly; you do not have to understand the topics per se...). If there...

    Hola Sara, I hope all works out well for you!!!! :) I had a similar situation, but was told by the Ezeiza guys that I had to pay a fine if I wanted to leave the country with my US passport, after having entered it with my Arg. one.

    Moving back to Argentina: Customs' question

    Oh, what great news!! One question: you have not lived here for more than 3 months the year before, right? Because, when I had to renew my Arg passport last December, they told me that I was now considered an Arg resident again due to having been here for more than 3 months... this made me think...

    Need shipping advice

    Hi Kelley, I can relate to your problem because my Apple broke last December and I had thought about the same doing at first. After talking to FedEx, I figured that, on top of their services, Customs here would charge me 50% on the price of the new Apple to be brought to BA from the US. Do not...

    Help Argentinian visit US

    Maybe she can get one of her professors at the program, or the Dean - even better - write a letter stating that she is indeed enrolled in the program and actively working on blahbhahblah... because, if she is enrolled at the (public, free) UBA, there is no sure way of knowing if she is attending...
