    Help choosing payment plan for university degree

    The university is Di Tella and I'm coming from the US. Not sure whether they offer multiple payment plan options to everyone or just to international students.

    Help choosing payment plan for university degree

    even though the university won't give me any information on how and by how much they might change the monthly payments, is it still safe to assume that the 24-month plan will be best due to inflation?

    Help choosing payment plan for university degree

    Total nominal cost is about 3 million pesos and there is no difference between the three payment plans. I don't think there is any discount from paying in cash and the two longer plans appear to be interest free (on account of having the same nominal cost as the shortest plan) but the university...

    Help choosing payment plan for university degree

    I am going to be enrolling soon in a master's degree program at Di Tella and I can choose from three possible payment plans. I need help choosing and am hoping someone here will have advice. The plans are monthly spread across 10, 20, or 24 months, and the nominal total cost is the same for all...

    Dolar turista - does it work for ATM withdrawals?

    Yeah, it would be Schwab. Do you withdraw cash at one particular bank or do you use multiple? I mean brands, not various locations of one brand.

    Dolar turista - does it work for ATM withdrawals?

    Hi! Does anyone know if the dolar turista applies when you are making ATM withdrawals from a U.S. bank account? I am not sure if it applies only to card purchases. Context: I'm moving to Argentina in a few weeks and have been gathering information about how to best make cash withdrawals from my...

    Can tourists/temporary residents use public healthcare system?

    Hi - can anyone point me to an official Argentine government website that verifies that tourists and temporary residents can use the public healthcare system? I've found lots of websites that say tourists/residents can use the system, free of charge, but I still cannot find anything from the...

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Yep, have both. Actually lived in BA previously a number of years ago and am coming back. I was close to a few positions (one especially) but they fell through due to a legal/bureaucratic issue relating to getting a work visa while outside of the country.

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Should I bring an apostilled copy of my graduate degree diploma? I'm preparing to work in BA and I'm assembling the various documents I need for the residency application, including the apostilled antecedentes penales (for me, an FBI background check). But now I'm thinking I should bring my...

    @Frank2000 is your username a reference to Weird Al's song "Frank's 2000" TV"?

    Tourist visa - Can I leave and come back to reset visa?

    Update: I am now confident your 90-day clock resets upon re-entry to the country. I don't actually live in BA, but I was there on a tourist visa in June and July. I entered the country on June 25, and the comprobante transito PDF I have saved in my emails from then has an expiration date of...

    Tourist visa - Can I leave and come back to reset visa?

    I believe U.S. citizens can re-enter on tourist visas repeatedly like you describe. However, I can't find positive proof of that on either the U.S. Department of State or Argentine migration authorities' websites. If I were you I would feel safe in going to/from the U.S. without impacting your...

    Thank you for your response. Are you saying Western Union provides pesos at the blue rate?

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Right, I know of official vs. blue rates, but does having a Western Union account enable me to send myself USD and then cash it out as paper USD while in Argentina? Right now it seems to me that having a Schwab account will allow me to convert dollars to pesos without the foreign transaction fee...

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Hi again. What's the benefit of using Schwab vs. Western Union for accessing my USD? If I open a Schwab account, and transfer money into it from my existing U.S. bank account, would that be as useful/advantageous as transferring money to myself via Western Union? Sorry if these are super basic...

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    The year range was meant to provide context... the real Q being, what other things should I set up for a long-term relocation.

    Thanks! I may redirect mail to a family member's house. Is there any reason why a mail service company would be superior?
