They are wrong. Residency is something you get later because of marriage.Thanks to everyone who has shared info in this thread. My question is slightly tangential but certainly related to the thread:
I am trying to get married and the registro civil told me I need a certificate of "estado de residencia" de Migraciones. Anybody ever hear about that? (I'm in a small town in Cba province, it's not like they've ever actually done one of these things, it's just what this employee was told)
Any hard info on this supposed rule?
BTW, I am in any case on a tourist visa from February 2020 (which I supposed is to be considered "expired"... but then again maybe not?). Any possibility of regularizing my situation - even if just to get married - without physically leaving and coming back ? (I know I won't be allowed back as a tourist the way things stand)
