    Tourist Visas Sketchy...is Marrying An Argentine The Answer?

    With all the news (and gossip) about expats running into issues with tourist visas and re-entering Argentina (whether they have adhered to the 3 month exit or have overstayed and paid the fees), it's pretty apparent that relying on tourist visas may not be the best solution anymore. I'm a US...

    My flight to Brasil was canceled today (of course) and financially my best option is to book the trip for next week. But if I don't leave the country tomorrow I will have overstayed my 90 day Tourist Visa. I'm not usually a rule breaker, and feel MUCH more comfortable leaving every 3 months as...

    Ba Health Insurance And Dentist Recommendation?

    Hi Everyone, 2 questions for you (I searched some past posts and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for): 1). Is purchasing a local health plan worth the cost? I realize public care is free (but can be sketchy/untimely) and you can pay out of pocket at private hospitals. I don't see...
