    Rentals. The most controversial points of the law that the Senate could approve

    I can't really comment on whether or not it is expensive to rent something here (I guess for those calculating in USD it is pretty cheap). However, if said article on infobae (post #64) is correct, then there are not only a few real estate agents not adhering to the new law, but roughly 95% of...

    Covid + passenger boards flight with fake certificate

    You can indeed make a legitimate case that if you knowingly put other people's life in danger, even more if someone indeed dies as a result of your negligence, that you should be severely punished for that; see also the guy who came back last year from the States, went to a party, infected a lot...

    Covid + passenger boards flight with fake certificate

    Could you keep us informed once this has been to court? As far as I see normally these are maximum sentences to scare the people (not only in Argentina). I would actually be surprised if he has to go to prison. Probably a few months on probation or something like that.

    Rentals. The most controversial points of the law that the Senate could approve

    I am totally with you. It seems the government tries to "correct" unwelcome trends in the rental market with more and more interventionism and making the problem bigger with every measure it takes. It is certainly an unwelcome outcome (on either side) if there are more and more vacant...

    Rentals. The most controversial points of the law that the Senate could approve

    According to this article on infobae the rents went up 70% in 2020, well above inflation. The minister Ferraresi is studying to implement an additional tax on vacant departments / real estates. And if I understand the following correctly, only 5% of the rental contracts are effectively...

    Standing in line.

    Your experience does not reflect in any way my experience here. Where ever I go, I find that people are pretty respectful in this regard and line jumping is not something I have seen many times. I even wondered at bus stops etc that there are waiting lines which are respected. You just go there...

    Luxury cars in Buenos Aires

    And here are the knuckleheads who got caught (or better: they filmed themselves racing in Nordelta) in two Ferraris last week: https://www.infobae.com/sociedad/2021/04/30/de-algo-vamos-a-morir-cuatro-hombres-se-filmaron-corriendo-una-picada-a-bordo-de-dos-ferraris-en-nordelta/

    Reduced flight schedules and current entry / exit requirements

    The flight on 8th of May (LH511) got cancelled. Do you know why they cancelled it? Is it related to new government restrictions? BTW: according to Google Flights the next flights on May 15 and 22 are currently still on: What happens if the flight get cancelled? Do they just return the money...

    Luxury cars in Buenos Aires

    I am not much of an engine person myself, but still find it quite interesting in the restaurant Napoles in Av Caseros. There are quite a few old cars and motos. (not sure whether it is open now during the day, but certainly worth a visit after the lockdown is over)

    Updated COVID restrictions on circulation

    If you look at the cases (not the death), I fail to see a big difference in the development / trend of province and CABA (also according to La Nacion):

    Updated COVID restrictions on circulation

    Could you quote something on that? I would indeed be very surprised if they did not send their kids to school. In fact, the vast majority of the parents want to have their kids in school. What is - however - well documented is that Kiciloff (that's the governor of the province who is lobbying...

    Has Anyone Entered as a Family Member Recently?

    Thank you. In my case I just want to make sure I can reenter, I don't really care about getting residency here in the short / mid-term (at the moment). My thinking is, if I come back in Aug / Sep then with three months visa I can make it until year end, and then I hope to spend a few weeks or...

    Has Anyone Entered as a Family Member Recently?

    I am also leaving in a couple of weeks and will be back in August / September. I am not a resident here, but I do have OSDE insurance here, so I think we are in a quite similar situation (married to Arg citizen with two binational (Arg) kids). What process is then required under the family...

    Updated COVID restrictions on circulation

    According to this article we (CABA / AMBA) are on maximum level (Alarma): Ante estas jurisdicciones, el Presidente no adelantó cuáles serán los criterios y variables que dispondrán que una región está en situación de alarma. ”En estas zonas el sistema de salud está muy tenso y la proporción de...

    Updated COVID restrictions on circulation

    Thank you for the update. What I don't understand: there are different measures depending on whether the zone is low or high risk (or alert): SITUACION DE BAJO MEDIO RIESGO EPIDEMIOLÓGICO Y SANITARIO ALTO RIESGO EPIDEMIOLÓGICO Y SANITARIO ALARMA EPIDEMIOLÓGICA Y SANITARIA What is the status...

    Argentina’s government likely to tighten Covid restrictions before weekend

    If you look at the deaths per 1m, Argentina is indeed not worse off than the countries that you mentioned: In comparison with California the fact is striking, that we performed more than 6 times less tests, also 4 times less than Italy. In comparison with Brazil and India it is about the...

    Argentina’s government likely to tighten Covid restrictions before weekend

    At this point it is effectively too late, second wave is coming one way or the other. There are certain restrictions required (bars, casinos, public events etc), but to me it is clear that phase 1 lockdown is simply not doable (as we had last year). Not socially, certainly not economically...

    Vaccines offer hope amid new wave in Argentina

    Well, I am neither an English native speaker nor a Spanish native speaker. What I understood is that the broader term in Spanish "cuarentena" is used to describe "containment and closure" policies. I have rarely ever heard the equivalent term in English "quarantine", but almost always I read /...

    Vaccines offer hope amid new wave in Argentina

    I said Argentina "had one of the world's hardest and longest lockdowns". The other day I saw an article in infobae comparing the stringency of the lockdown measures comparing Argentina with Spain (source). I now checked the data (from the University of Oxford comparing the measures of all...

    Vaccines offer hope amid new wave in Argentina

    Were you here in Buenos Aires last year between end of March until let's say June / July? Public life came to a stand still, literally almost no traffic and economic activity. With the exception of supermarkets and pharamcies there was complete shut down. As an example, in April last year not a...
