panamajames posted We need a place to stay...... on the Argentina forum on October 30, 2014:
Hi, we are 4 senior expats, 2 couples travelling to Argentina December 12th or thereabouts, and need accommodation. Any expats out there with apartments or Casitas in Buenos Aires for a few weeks or so, and also in Mendoza for a week or two.......Hotels are a possibility, but I prefer expats with places for other expats.........any recommendations would be great. Thanks so much.

Hello I am visiting Argentina for 3 months in Jan 2015, and would appreciate great advise on the following: 1) Job: How easy is it for an English speaking expat to find a job there. Am venturing into new field. Something fun eg apprentice in professional photography 2) During my visit, I hope to land a few interviews. How to get started on that 3) During the visit is it possible to study Spanish course? 4) Where to live for 6months, travelling with my 2 pet dogs 5) Keeping busy: How to make friends. I appreciate the city is filled with lots of things to do but no fun doing that stuff alone all the time so how to make friends if not in job or in Uni 6) Banking and Insurance: How to get that sorted for an extended stay (3months + 3 months) 7) Starting an online business & taxes: Would that be easy, would be in the creative field. 8) Tax on income from overseas: DO we need to pay income tax in the first three months stay if just as a visitor/ tourist 9) How to open bank account and get credit card . 10) Phone card and transport pass? Would appreciate answers as soon as you can. Many thanks!

Greetings, My wife and I are planning on moving to the Mendoza area in October, and would love to hear any helpful thoughts/information on best areas to live; typical cost of living (1-bed apt) and insight on renting, health care, Spanish classes, etc. We live pretty simply in the US., no cell phones or T.V., and would like to do so in Mendoza, though will need internet access to work. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond! Have a fantastic day!

Hi, I was wondering if anybody can help me. I owe land in Argentina and it was given to a friend to look after. He later wanted to buy it but never paid for it. Somebody else moved in, it was arranged by our friend and we got told from our friend, the person will look after the place and pays the tax for it as exchange. How can we get the person from the land, because the person using the land now, is claiming it is now his property, because we did not show up for such a long time. I would be very thankful for any helpful comments. Thanks Aurora

Do you have a contract with this person? COMODATO OR LOCATION ?
MendozaHomes replied on October 20, 2014 with:
Hi I am a Real Estate Agent. He need to be lin the property for 20 years and prove it. Open in justice and must meet some requirements that are not easy to prove, for example pay for this time tax, a lot of people confirm he lived for this time. Please send us more information about time, if the property is better when you go to Australia, etc. Good luck

TomP: "I am afraid all else in mere heresay." Tom is right, if we bring Argentine administration into the formula. All experience is hearsay because every single Argentine bureaucrat has his or her own interpretation of the rules. You bring your papers to an 'official office' and are told that this-or-that is wrong/missing/whatever, usually some insignificant detail. You go home, check all your documents, find no fault and bring the same papers to the same office the next day. Another bureaucrat may then stamp all your papers within 42 seconds and immediately issue the certificate or whatever you needed - or find some imaginary fault and send you home to repeat the procedure :) Experiences like Nelieta's are important because they show you the ropes and bring you as close to the target as possible, bar the individual Argentine bureaucrat's personal interpretation. In Nelieta's article I especially love this: "... the website of the Colegio de Traductores ... is not available in English". The translaters' - **translaters** - page is not available in English, which is understod by some 5.000.000.000 people all over the world - thats Latin America in a nut shell.

Hola Aurora, this is what the Argentine 'burocracia' has in store for you :) - you'll need years of experience with Argentine, Spanish, Brazilian, etc. authorities to get a result similiar to the girl's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPFChTmlzCg

HunterBourne initially posted:
Greetings All, I am new and literally just moved to Buenos Aires from USA (California) 2 days ago. As you can imagine, I've already dealt with adjusting to the new areas, learning the buses and Metro, buying electric plug adapters for USA plugs, and also walking to Central to get the "Blue" exchange rates of 14.5 versus the 8.5? Is the 8.5, the Gringo rate? I've gotten some good feedback, but my still real issue now is trying to figure out the uncertain banking situation in Argentina. Many people on other Expat sites said I should NOT open an Argentina bank, but maybe open one in safer Montevideo? All of my money is back in the USA and I have to figure out where to move it as I cant keep paying ATM fees and need to get an apartment, plus most banks here seem really skittish over giving anything more than 1,000 pesos through ATM. I know that there is that rule about only moving $10,000 at a time, but cant you move it all over to an International Trust (like Belize or Singapore) and not have that problem. I'd still need a local bank to pull funds from or does everyone else here just "Stuff it in their Mattresses" Thanks in advance for all advice, Hunter

jimbob66 posted Tucuman, ex-pat community on the Argentina forum:
I'm about halfway through my 1 month stay in San Miguel de Tucuman and was wondering if there was any sort of ex-pat community near here? There seem to be very few foreigners around and virtually no English speaking people. I'm here visiting my girlfriend, an English teacher, and whilst many of her friends speak English, I'm finding Spanish hard to grasp and wanted some contact with "home".
