The aattorney may have accurate information about the current monthly income requirement for the visa rentists and it indeeed could be $2000 USD now.For the 9 months residency, is it still required to have 2000 usd passive income? "Maye we can attempt usd 1500 instead of usd 2000 to have good chances of approval. We can try with less, but we cannt guarantee success."
The last time the monthy income requirement of $30.000 peso was posted on the migraciones website, that amount was equal to about $800 USD per month and, based on reports here in the forum, migraciones was granting new visas and renewals at that time, even though the $30.000per month income requirement took effect when the official exchange rate was 15 pesoss to one USD. That equaled $2,000 USD per month.
Migraciones will no doubt calculate the monthly income at the official rate, so (just for example) if the official rate is $100 pesos to one USD, $30.000 pesos would equal $300 US Dollars, but it's hard to imagine that's all they will require if and when they resume granting new visa rentistas. I'm not sure, but it may be possible to renew existing ones for those who are now in Argentina if migraciones is open.The last monthly income figure shown on the migraciones website for the visa rentista was only $30.000 pesos (now just over $200 US DOLLARS!)
