    Rentista Visa

    The more I examine the visas, I think the answer to my question is yes. For a former government employee, you look for exact terms and definitions. Short of that, the Family Reunification Visa logically appears to be for dependents and is probably referred to as a "dependent visa". Still, its...

    Rentista Visa

    Option 2, the Consular visa: On line 30 of the Mercosur consular visa application, it asks for the name of the applicant's spouse and information. And then it asks "Do they travel with you" "CONYUGE apellidos, nombres, nacionalidad, fecha de nacimiento, ¿viaja con usted?" This appears to be the...

    Rentista Visa

    And thank you too. Just one clarification: Are you referring to me? I would be applying as a dependent, based on my wife's Mercosur visa. As I mentioned above, I fear that if my wife received a Tourist visa stamp upon arrival while planning to apply for a Mercosur visa and immediately began to...

    Rentista Visa

    Thank you for this. So many helpful people on this forum. I was wondering from the beginning if there was a dependent based visa and now surprised this was not mentioned in responses to our inquiries at the Argentine embassy in Bogota. Nevertheless, is great news for me. It could be more...

    Rentista Visa

    Very helpful, thanks. I've been a resident of Colombia for 8 years, so I imagine the Colombian criminology report is the equivalent of the FBI report. Also, I recently got a letter from the US Embassy addressed to Colombia Migracion verifying my Social Security payments for the same purpose...

    Rentista Visa

    Based on what I've found regarding a Rentista Visa, (mostly from this forum, big thanks, terrific help on evolving rules), I need to come to Buenos Aires before beginning a Rentista application process. Last time I examined the requirements at Migracion, it referenced the applicant's attorney...

    Rent in Dollars

    Ok, helpful, thanks. Is simple, easy. I recall in one of our visits reference to something like commerce in dollars being illegal and that visitors were required to exchange for and make purchases in pesos. Is that true but, just not usually enforced?

    And for the owner to list an apartment in dollars publicly online?

    Rent in Dollars

    Scanning rentals (not in BA yet), and it seems many (all?) are listed for dollars. I understand that real estate is purchased in dollars and why. But I read others were having transfers converted to pesos depending on their status. Not sure if it's still that way for some. Seems that some or...

    Where to search for an Apartment

    No I haven't. I've been told we probably want to commute with other commuters not in odd hours. We'll visit a few months before we move.

    Where to search for an Apartment

    Yeah, that's fine. For us is a work place. I thought you were referring to one of the recommended barrios.

    Where to search for an Apartment

    Thanks for all the replies. Gives me a good start. I've done this in a number of cities and like to be well prepared with a good map, choices and transport options.

    Where to search for an Apartment

    Yeah, train is important and not too long if possible. But not sure which place you're referring to thats ugly with the factories and golf course.

    Where to search for an Apartment

    Planning to move to Buenos Aires in a few months for a year. Need advice on apartment locations. We would be commuting to the main campus of Universidad Nacional de San Martin, I imagine on the Miter Line to the Miguelete station. We're some familiar with and stayed in Recoleta, Palermo and...

    ISP service, Routers & VPNs

    Do ISPs let you connect your own router in Buenos Aires? I read that ISP provided routers, cause problems with VPNs, which is probably why they use them exclusively in some places, or charge much higher costs to use your own router. Curious as to the ease and difficulties encountered in Buenos...

    Don't see a "Rentista" visa at the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

    Or it is a visa, but is referred to as multiple documents, permit, entry permit... Is confusing as to to whether I need to apply to only one or both the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones and the Embassy in country of residence for one of the visas listed there. Seems two agencies complement or...

    Don't see a "Rentista" visa at the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

    Thank you! I have to examine this closer: Permiso de Ingreso temporario como rentista y pensionado. Up to 3 years. This no is a visa. And not sure I need it if I'm in the country for less than 180 days per year.

    ATM changes

    Where does the money come from, a foreign bank? (obviously, i suppose). How does it transfer from a bank to Western Union in the foreign country? What do you get from Western Union in Argentina - Cash, Argentine Pesos? USDs? Sorry, totally unfamiliar and planning to live there temporarily.

    Don't see a "Rentista" visa at the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

    I cannot find a "Rentista" visa at the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores. https://www.cancilleria.gob.ar/es/servicios/servicios-para-extranjeros/visas Is it the Visa Para Personal Trasladado (Visa for Expatriate Staff)? There is also the Visa Por Nacionalidad. If it is one of these, don't see...
