    Not Happy Here, Easy buy a Nationality 12 Country Options

    Assuming you are here in Argentina with income/savings in dollars I seriously doubt you would be able to match the quality of life you get here (considering the cost of living) in any country on that list, or indeed in most countries in the world. It sounds bad to say this, but especially with...

    Buying a car on a tourist visa without a DNI/precaria

    Thanks. Have you tried buying a car using these documents yourself? I'll try and ask at some concesionarios nearby but I seriously doubt they'll be able to answer this...

    Buying a car on a tourist visa without a DNI/precaria

    Thanks... but this doesn't really address my question on whether tourists are allowed to buy a car (assuming all the paperwork is done properly)

    Buying a car on a tourist visa without a DNI/precaria

    Hi everyone, with the blue rate at historic highs yet again it’s starting to seem like a good idea to buy a car for travelling around the country. I’d like to know if anyone has successfully bought one (either used or new) while being a tourist without a DNI or residencia. I do have a valid CUIT...

    For those of you without a full time job, what do you all do in Argentina?

    I would suspect that if they were to look up your file in detail for whatever reason they could definitely find out that you have two passports given that you've used both to enter the country at some point in time and so this should be somewhere in migraciones' records. However having done...

    For those of you without a full time job, what do you all do in Argentina?

    good point, I have 2 passports so I alternate between them when I cross the arg border, not actually sure if the Migraciones guy can see the details of both my passports on the computer at the same time though haha

    For those of you without a full time job, what do you all do in Argentina?

    Haha thanks for all the ideas - I guess it ultimately boils down to what it is that I want in my life (what a difficult question!). On an unrelated sidenote do any of you have experience in getting a rentista visa? I've been hopping in and out of the country to Uruguay/Chile/Brazil to renew my...

    For those of you without a full time job, what do you all do in Argentina?

    Thanks for the info on the cultural events/meetups! Are most people on this forum married/have families? I was wondering how different things would be for a single person (FYI I'm a single guy in my mid 30s, not looking for a partner lmao just trying to see if there's anyone else in my...

    For those of you without a full time job, what do you all do in Argentina?

    Hi, this is a question I've always wanted to ask expats/immigrants who don't have a full time job here in arg. What do all of you do in your day to day lives (pre-coronavirus)? I've been in BA for about a year now (on a sabbatical of sorts) and prior to corona I used to go on trips around the...

    Wonderful economic history of Argentina

    Huh, that's a good point about 'not owning things'... Come to think about it I think owning home maintenance or repair equipment is a very American DIY thing... most people i know in Europe who live in cities at least, dont have any of that and also rely on hiring people to do stuff

    Wonderful economic history of Argentina

    There was an interesting post on the Argentina subreddit a while ago discussing salaries, and to be honest it is quite sobering to see the figures that many of the locals earn, I remember many IT and engineering professionals saying that they were making something like 50, 60, 70k a month, and...

    Wonderful economic history of Argentina

    I guess it does sort of put things into perspective, doesn't it? I remember going to Bariloche last year and meeting a few Argentinian friends there (they were relatively upper-middle class and had decent-paying jobs), we went out for drinks and for some reason I still remember we had a few...

    Wonderful economic history of Argentina

    I think the main thing is that foreigners/expats here have the option to leave if we want to, so we're lucky enough to get the best of both worlds. If things really do become unbearable here there are better places that we could go/return to, it just so happens that at this moment in time we...

    Wonderful economic history of Argentina

    I was never particularly sociable back home but since moving here for some reason I've managed to build up quite a decent circle of friends, both Argentines and foreigners. Sure, some of them probably still see me as more of an 'outsider' but I enjoy myself, so what the heck. Not to mention...

    BA Real Estate market to take a dive before the end of the year.

    While some properties are gonna drop 30% in dollars I don't think this applies to most properties... at least not within the next few months (within the next few years, possibly). Think about it, if you have an apartment worth 400k in a good location in Palermo would you really be willing to...

    Western Union money transfer

    Thanks! I've never actually been to the main office (never knew of its existence until i came to this thread) so my max transfer amount has been like 1k USD, i might try to transfer 3-4k as it seems like the rate has stabilised somewhat...

    Is there a way to get USD in BA?

    If anything it is the AFIP and the BCRA who are 'gaming' the money of all 40 million argentinian citizens.

    Is there a way to get USD in BA?

    Exactly. Yeah, sure, the owner might be a rich guy with loads of properties to rent out, but on the other hand it could also just be some middle class Argentine who happens to be lucky enough to own a second property. Given that the vast majority of us here are paying a lot less in rent compared...

    Western Union money transfer

    Do you happen to know what the actual limit for cash withdrawals is at the main WU place? The WU site from my country allows up to 5000 USD (but I'm obviously skeptical that they'll be ready to give me 600,000 pesos), and I'll need to transfer a significant amount in the next week or so to pay...
