Hi everyone. I'm not an expat YET. My wife and I are planning to start spending several months at a time in Argentina, beginning in 5 years when I retire. In the meantime, we go there all of the time and will, in fact, be in BsAs during the entire month of July, 2008.
Here's my question which is relevant to this topic. Because my father, a US citizen, was born in Argentina, I can get Argentine citizenship. I've already applied and am waiting for my DNI. Is there any advantage to having Argentine citizenship? Tax advantages? Other advantages?
I guess the reason I went to the trouble of applying for citizenship wasn't really about any advantages. It was simply both a matter of pride and of having a Plan B, so to speak. In my humble opinion, George W Bush has so thoroughly screwed up the USA that it may never recover. And if another Republican Administration comes in, things will only get worse. It's good to have a Plan B in case this country goes to Hell. Again, just my perspective, however warped it might be.
