Obtaining Your Digital Nomad Visa In Argentina

Argentina is the second largest country in South America, located in the southern region. It has many beautiful places to visit and a wide range of weather. Towards the north, you will find warmer temperatures, with some big cities like the capital Buenos Aires. Towards the south of Argentina, you will find cooler temperatures and many mountainsides for those who love the cold and hiking.

Argentina neighbours Uruguay to the northeast, Chile to the west, and Paraguay, Bolivia, and Brazil to the north. Argentina has been an inexpensive expat hotspot for a few decades now. To bolster this high traffic of immigrants, help with their economy, and give digital nomads a better experience in the country, they launched in May 2022 their first digital nomad visa.

LIVING IN ARGENTINA

Argentina is an expat and digital nomad hotspot, as there are currently around 60,000 expats in Argentina. It is considered one of the safest countries in South America, although crimes like pickpocketing are common in bigger cities. Argentina has a population of 45.8 million and is the second-largest country in South America. The cost of living is low, and the government has a lot of other visa programs for digital nomads who decide to take up residence in Argentina.

 

LOW COST OF LIVING

The average monthly wage in Argentina is currently around 203,764 Argentine pesos (around $800 USD). Argentina’s economy has faced many challenges, including high unemployment and inflation of nearly 100%. However, digital nomads can live comfortably in Argentina for $1,000 USD/month or less, making saving money easy.

 

NATURAL ATTRACTIONS

Argentina has many wonderful natural parks, including Parque Nacional de Los Glaciares and other national parks. The country has a large salt flat, one of America’s most extensive wetlands, waterfalls, and jungles. It is also relatively easy to navigate Argentina and travel, as the country is around one-third the size of the United States.

 

INTERNET SPEED

Broadband speed is ranked 71th globally, averaging 63 Mbps. However, you may get frustrated with mobile internet speeds. They can be slow due to problems between the leading internet service provider and the government wanting to remove their licence, leading to a lack of investment in the infrastructure.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Argentina has a strong, educated middle class. Moreover, the government has several visa programs to support foreign entrepreneurs and investors, and it is even possible to gain citizenship if you start a business and stay in Argentina long enough. The Argentina digital nomad visa is one of the best ways to get established in the country, learn more about the language and economy and decide if this is a good long-term fit for you.

 

SIM CARDS

It is very easy for digital nomads to purchase a local SIM card, and monthly plans are very affordable. Digital nomads can buy monthly plans for less than $20 USD/month, so there is no need to rely on global plans from companies in the United States or other countries, as these can cost $100 USD/month or more to cover you while you are abroad.

 

TAXES

While living in Argentina with a digital nomad visa, Argentina will not subject you to local or national taxes. You will live in Argentina as a tax haven for the period of your visa. A significant positive benefit of being a digital nomad in Argentina.

DIGITAL NOMAD VISA OVERVIEW

Argentina released its first digital nomad visa in May 2022, joining other regional peers such as Brazil and Costa Rica. There are plenty of local employment opportunities in Argentina, but if you want to work for a local company, you must apply for a work permit and can’t use this visa. This new visa provides digital nomads with a residence permit that allows them to work for companies outside of Argentina while living in Argentina.

Below are some requirements for this digital nomad visa program:

  • You must apply online with your personal information, including your current job, earnings, and signature. You must write a separate document to upload to your application;
  • You must present your current and valid passport with images of the sheets with your personal information and photo in JPG format;
  • A brief Curriculum Vitae stating your experience level and any scholarly accomplishment;
  • A photo of yourself showing your face with a white background must be an image taken when uploading your other documents and not a picture of a photo also in JPG format;
  • Lastly, you will need proof of work, documentation like a contract, company guarantee, proof of application for labour demand, certificates, or receipts of income, and record a minimum of one reference to your company.

You may be required to provide more information than listed here by immigration. To apply for your digital nomad visa, go to this site.
