    I'm going to be visiting my boyfriend in India next month and need to get malaria pills before going. Does anyone know how easily they are to get here or if only certain physicians or pharmacies carry them? Thanks for any advice!

    Citigroup and/or HSBC question...

    Fishface: As far as the unlimited transfers goes, the amount is, unfortunately a central bank limitation. There are others as well that are unique to Argentina. For example, it is illegal for a person to transfer money directly from Argentina to Jersey and a few other offshore places. Hence...

    Citigroup and/or HSBC question...

    I am also an HSBC customer and employee. If you are a Premier customer, then the previous posting is correct: you will not pay any ATM fees to withdraw cash from any HSBC ATM (we have a lot of branches in greater BsAs and in Argentina in general). However, you WILL be charged an FX fee...

    Introduction/resident visa question

    I have to apply for the residency visa once I arrive because of complications with the work visa. Yes, the logical thing would be for me to apply for the work permit from London, but because I'm undergoing training in London and will be a "business visitor" on a tourist visa, I am ineligible to...

    best neighborhood for young couple
