After living in Argentina on and off for the past 5 years, I am ready to make it my home. However, as far as I can tell, getting residency, and therefore the DNI, is near-impossible as I do not fall into any of the rentista, contracted employee, Argentine family categories. Has anyone been in a similar position and knows of any alternative? I heard that there was an amnesty for foreigners in 2004 (which I missed) where they could "legalizarse" without falling into any of the above categories. Any advice (except for get married!) would be very much appreciated.
