It may have been a long time since anyone asked this, but the answer at the time was (and probably still is) no, and that's because the visa rentista specifically refers to stable foreign income. Rental income from a property in Argentina obviously doesn't meet the definition of foreign and it might be difficult to make the case that the income could be considered stable, especially if the property was a recent purchase.Hi, thanks to everyone on this forum for the useful advice! Just a quick question here - has anyone managed to get a rentista visa using rental income from a property in Argentina? This seems to be a relatively easier option that getting foreign documents translated/apostilled, and should be easier for the guy/gal at migraciones to handle, but is this even allowed given that the exact wording on the migraciones site says that (...con recursos propios traídos desde el exterior, de las rentas que éstos produzcan, o de cualquier otro ingreso lícito proveniente de fuentes externas)?
I haven't bought a property here yet, but if I were to do so with money brought in from overseas, and then rented it out for more than 30k pesos, would this technically qualify?
Alternatively, renting out my flat in my home country could also be a possible option - has anyone done this before?
I know I'm probably over-analysing the gists of Argentine immigration law here, but I'd be grateful if someone could share their experiences/thoughts on this!
What Dr. Rubilar wrote actually indicates is that the "Central Bank" requires an individual to have permanent residency to open a bank account, not that a having a bank account is a requirement for permanent residency.I know someone here who just got pensionado permanent residency and had never had a bank account here.
My final objective is to settle down in Argentina. I have a remote job and after getting DNI i am planning to register that job in Argentina as it is registered in my country. Just my whole concern is whether i can get a rentista with trust account where i am both granter(person who gives money) and beneficiary(person who receives money monthly) , or granter is my relative ?I doubt anyone--including Migraciones itself at the moment--knows the answers to these questions.
It depends what your objective is. If it is simply to live in Argentina legally for a period of time longer than the 90-day tourist visa (and if you can get by without a DNI and without a bank account), if you can be bothered going to the time, effort, and cost to collect all the documentation related to your trust and all the information indicated in earlier posts, have these documents apostilled, translated, and lodged with Migraciones, you stand a good chance of obtaining at least a Precaria and then being able to live here for months (even over a year, as has been my case--even with a very simple and well-documented Rentista application) while your application sits in a tray somewhere inside Migraciones.
If your objective is different to the above, I think you have no alternative other than to pay a local lawyer specialist in this area to help you build your application and then pursue it through the system.
Thanks for your advice, i will work on it. Wish you succeed in your purposes.In that case, your overall objective is the same as mine. However, after 21 months pursuing what ought to be a very straightforward the Rentista residency application, I am yet to even begin the first of the three years and get on the path to permanent residency. Four of those months were gathering the documentation at home, two were readying the information here and submitting it to Migraciones and the remainder has been the as yet incomplete processing through Migraciones, with no guarantee that in the end they will accept the application.
The point here is that there is no answer to the specific question. It will be up to the discretion of the assessor who eventually looks at your application. Even if you were to go down to Migraciones in person this week and found someone knowledgeable on the subject, they would not be able to give you a clear answer (and even if they did, you could not rely on it).
I think you need to obtain professional assistance for your case, because you are in a Catch 22: you want to know whether it is worth going to all the trouble of applying in the first place, but the only way to know that is to first go to all the trouble.
A professional in this area should be able to help you decide what to do.
