I got through the whole residency visa for my husband, who is american, and it took over a year, you need to get papers translated, legalised, the police background check takes far more time than what they say, then if you happen to have an initial on one document and a full second name on another you gotta get letters from your embassy, also when you go to migraciones sometimes you gotta wait for 2-3 hours cos it is packed with people, and so on. I think the requirements are fair, but getting all the paper stuff together can take time, also state workers take their time to do things ( if you know what I mean ). There is nothing tricky really, it is just a pain in the b**. It is possible that if you do it at an argentine embassy abroad things are smoother and faster though."steveinbsas" said:What I would really like to know is if anyone has experienced any anti-US feedback from Argentine migraciones and what specifically makes getting residency here "really tough" as sergio stated in his post.
