Best way to go about finding job with visa sponsorship for bilingual native English speaker?

Just curious- when you say you have plenty of savings and are just interested in the Visa, up to being willing to accept a $3 an hour job- Are you serious?

I moved with a decent (I wouldn’t say ‘plenty of’, but a ‘wise’ amount) savings and thanks to the inflation and paying rent in USD (which is mainly what most people have to do, as ‘normal’ rental conditions are complicated for people who don’t have family/other properties/garantías), it was depleted in 3 and a half months.

If you are wealthy and are just looking to chill and can afford it, and this job you mention is more to kill time and earn ‘play money’ rather than ‘make a living’ money, you’ll be ok though

Hi,
don't know if it helps, but these are two of the websites that people tend to use to find jobs here:

hope they're useful!
Thank you! Thus far I've found glassdoor the most useful, there's quite a few positions on there that I'm very qualified for - but I get the feeling the work isn't so hard that they need a native speaker to do it, and are more likely to take an Argentine with fluent English.

I'm not conventionally wealthy, rather I just recently received a one-off windfall. But I'm still working and generating an income for day to day costs as I'm a freelancer, the savings are for an emergency. I just really want to ensure I have legal status.

I was hoping to start a Master's degree here in 2020 rather than 2019, but I might just do it in 2019 if it's the only realistic way to get a visa.

You can spend 180 days legally per calendar year in Argentina, why would you want to be there 100% of the time? It will drive you mad, Argentina is a jungle, nice to visit, but tough to stay.

If one calendar year you stay the last 180 days in Argentina and the next calendar year you stay the first 180 days in Argentina, I think you would be able to stay legally for 360 consecutive days in Argentina as a tourist. Check the conditions of the tourist visa to be sure if this is correct.

I don't think that the "calendar year" is used to calculate the 365 day period out of which it is possible to spend 180 days in Argentina with the residency transitoria (aka: the 90 day tourist visa).

That being said, I think spending just under six months in Argentina and six months in another country (if not two or three) would be a great lifestyle, especially for anyone from the USA who, by staying out of the USA for 335 days of the year, would be exempt from paying US Federal income taxes on at least the first $100K.

Of course it would only work for someone who worked "remotely" and didn't have to deal with clients in the flesh.

I have no desire to do that now as the the only other place I wanted to live outside of Argentina (several years before or since moving here in 2006) is France (Paris and/or the South of France), but they are no longer desirable places to live. 1535067050849.png

Yeah, I know, but I am pretty set on living here anyway. Argentine history is my academic specialisation which pretty much put me on a crash course with the country. At the very least I owe it to myself to spend a few years here.
