    AR Federal budget 2022 shows the dollar at...

    Where does the $135 fit in? It says on google that $1USD=98.29 pesos. If inflation is 34% but salaries rose 5% how can Argentines afford to take a 29% wage cut?

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    But the links you quote cite conflicts in Chilean Araucania and Argentine Patagonia. Don't tell me Mendoza City is overrun with this violence. <iframe width="853" height="480" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media...

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    You see Americans have been born and raised with guns. For most Brits they are still alien phenomena.

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    A summary of my thoughts on some of the above posts: it's still early days in my property venture and with the topography of the country being so varied it will take time to research it all. I believe you said Steve that you started with an apartment in Recoleta: on first thoughts this was my...

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    Oh I misread it, though you did post a quinta in Mendoza province. As a matter of interest is there anything wrong with Mendoza and its environs?

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    As I say this kind of move has to be fully researched. I'm grateful for your input and will give Mendoza province serious consideration.

    Aduana concerns

    Did they deliver door to door Mercy? Is it possible to insure against such damage?

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    I'll check it out Steve, but you're younger than me and I do have security concerns.. <iframe width="853" height="480" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I didn't have any respect for him, sorry.

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    They're very tempting Steve, though I wonder if I would become a bit of a recluse. They've even left the piano in situ for me. How would it work in practical terms: driving to the nearest town for groceries/cost of car/driving licence/postal service/ security etc? I do like the fact that all the...

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    But you can't live your lives for others; sure you can discuss, debate and advise, but ultimately people have to lead their own lives and make their own mistakes.

    Aduana concerns

    Thank you Alpinista. Would you happen to know if it's safe to bring containers filled with furniture into Buenos Aires port when you don't have direct surveillance of the goods and need them transporting to one's domicile or whether there's a way round this dilemma?

    Aduana concerns

    I've just checked a couple of threads including bringing white goods and furniture into the country. Can I ask what the role of the customs broker is and how much would the returnable bond amount to?

    Aduana concerns

    Can I broaden this out a bit and ask whether it would be worth bringing furniture items in a container from the UK into Buenos Aires port or whether the cost would be prohibitive?

    Buy a house in BA?

    Steve briefly the minimum income requirement for Brits moving permanently to Eurozone countries varies from €7500 for Portugal to €50,000 for the Republic of Ireland. For Spain it's €25000 per annum. This is for permanent residency. You can of course buy property in any of the Eurozone...

    Buy a house in BA?

    Frank I think this may have been true in the past, but you're forgetting Brexit and its impact. There are baby-boomers like myself coming to retirement who admittedly are looking for a better climate in their third age but who either baulk at or simply do not meet the criteria of €25000 per...

    PASO Election Results

    I don't quite know what to make of this so I'll throw caution to the wind and just post:

    Live and let live.

    When will Argentina be open for tourists to enter?

    That was my take on the post also.

    Potentially Moving to Argentina

    Do you mean wiring funds from your bank in (I'm presuming) the USA? I can't keep flying to the UK from Argentina and back every time I need foreign currency.
