    Entering US Embassy with expired tourist visa?? HELP!

    Nona, I've entered the U.S. embassy two times with an expired tourist visa and they never said a thing. I don't think they even looked at my visa pages, just checked to be sure my photo matched my face and waved me on my way. So unless something has changed I doubt you'll have a problem. Good...

    Broken heart needs a day spa

    Sorry to hear about your heart break, FreeFalling! As for spas, what neighborhood do you live in? One of my neighbors in Almagro has a very small spa. One of her deals is a complete package: skin treatment, relaxing bath, manicure and pedicure, facial and a hot stone massage. That package costs...

    Hey Everyone!

    This Friday would work for me! I think someone suggested 7pm at some point; maybe we could meet at a happy hour somewhere?

    Best Bloody Mary in BA?

    I don't like bloody marys but a friend who does says that Buller has a great one. Can't tell you if it's expensive or not.

    Book exchange?

    It looks like Pertutti on Cordoba and Pueyrredon should work for most people. Hope to see you all there at 4pm!

    Book exchange?

    I just remembered that the Pertutti I was thinking of is on the corner of Cordoba and Pueyrredon, not Santa Fe. Does that work for everyone? If not, I'm sure there are cafes on Santa Fe and Pueyrredon too. So sorry for the mix up!

    Book exchange?

    Sunday afternoon would work well for me, maybe around 4pm? Pueyrredon and Santa Fe sounds good too; there's a restaurant called Pertutti on the corner that is pretty big. It would be a good place to meet. Any one else interested?

    Book exchange?

    All right, does tomorrow (Monday) afternoon work well for everyone? Or would next weekend be better? I was thinking we could meet at a cafe, but I don't really care about the location. Any ideas?

    Book exchange?

    I've collected about 15 novels that I'd like to trade for some new reading material. Is anyone interested in setting up a book exchange, maybe for Monday afternoon or next weekend? Extra love to anyone who has The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson (I have the first 2 in the...

    Overstaying work visa

    Steve, I don't understand your question. My origninal post and the title both say work visa, not tourist. Honestly, I don't want to assume anything since a work visa and a tourist visa are very different processses. Can anyone confirm overstaying a work visa is no big deal?

    Overstaying work visa

    I opened this thread because I'm on a work visa, not a tourist. I KNOW that if you overstay a tourist visa you pay 300 pesos and go on your merry way (I've done it myself) but I wanted to double check about overstaying on a work visa. I just want to be sure that they won't prohibit me from...

    Overstaying work visa

    I care because my fiance is Argentine and we will (presumably) be coming back here to visit his family and friends for the rest of our lives. If there's a chance that I could be banned from entering Argentina due to overstaying I want to be sure to take the steps necessary to avoid that. Plus, I...

    Overstaying work visa

    I think there's just a simple stamp in it, but I'll have to check. The actual visa is a piece of paper that's not attached to my passport. Good point though, because if there isn't a stamp it will just look like I've overstayed my tourist visa for a year, but maybe that's not such a good thing...

    Overstaying work visa

    Does anyone know what happens if I overstay my one-year work visa? It expires in November and I know I can renew it, but I'm leaving in December and don't want to go through the hassle of renewing. I'm assuming that I will pay a fine at the airport, but can anyone confirm that? Thanks!

    Since we're beating a dying horse (sorry Mary, but welcome to the forum!)... All languages have peculiarities since most languages (aside from Klingon and Esperanto) are not planned or designed. As a woman I find it insulting that the Spanish word for handcuffs is esposas, or "wives." It is...
