    Argentinian immigration

    Well, I'm not a lawyer and certainly not an Argentine immigration lawyer, but I'll give you my opinions regarding your questions. There are several different types of residency visas for Argentina. Which type you need depends on which one(s) you can qualify for. They are: Rentista/Financier...
