    Married to an Argentine citizen, questions about residency

    Me and my Argentine wife made the move here from the UK over 15 years ago. I don't remember the whole procedure for me being granted permanent residency but it certainly didn't involve half the stuff that's been mentioned here. It was a lot easier and more efficient . Probably helped that my...

    Visa and Citizenship clarifications

    Despite being married to an Argentine and living here for 14 years I've never given getting an Argentine passport a thought. As far as I know I don't think having one will be of any benefit at all.

    COVID-19 vaccine development pipeline gears up

    Two people we know here both in their 60's have recently died ''from Covid''. Like the majority of others they had underling health conditions. One had hypertension/heart problems the other had diabetes. If I had an underlying medical condition I might consider getting the vaccine but as I'm...

    Is Argentina truly rabies free for dogs?

    I'm not surprised...probaly a thousand more times likelier to catch the Covid.

    Is Argentina truly rabies free for dogs?

    If you take your dog out in public here then it's best to get them vaccinated. If you get bitten by a sreet dog then there is still a chance, albeit very small, of being infected. I personally wouldn't worry too much about it but my Argentine wife still takes rabies seriously.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    All sensible advice although as a small town resident I'd disagree about the food and crime. The food variety available here is very poor however fortunately the crime rate is very low. Thankfully I don't have to bother about counting the pesos or forever be wondering about the dollar blue. I...

    Argentina stuck in the 1960's?

    That's my very point....is it not about time they change? Another example happened the other day highlighting the problem. The security camera/alarm system in the quinta went down. We gave the chap who runs the business and installed it a call...he didn't answer. Sent him a Whatsapp...he didn't...

    How locked down is life there now?

    As long as case numbers don't start heading up the way then daily life will more or less be 'normal'. Your biggest problem might be getting here.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    I've noticed to a large extent competition in the retail trade doesn't exist here. That's why where I live there are about 10 times more shops per head of population than in a similar sized town in the UK.

    I would say it is.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Must agree. Despite me being very easily pleased I wouldn't be here if I had to give the rate of the dollar blue one second of my time.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Perhaps I should have asked "Where would you like to spend the rest of your life?'' Must admit and I'm probably wrong....most Argentina expats do seem to be dollar earners and only here for the cheap ride.

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I thought old Trumpy was rather a hoot....I enjoyed him taking the piss out of the 'system'. Now it's the turn of one of the oh so predictable old boys who let's face it is only there because he was owed favours. All a bit worrying that the US can't come up with better Presidents nowadays..

    Probably but you have to blame something for Argentinas woes.

    Changing Argentina’s Inertia: Is it Possible?

    Always said the problem with Argentina is its Spanish and Italian background plus it's location in the world map doesn't help. There's no EU here to take them by the hand and guide them into the 21st century.
