The Argentina guide

Latest articles

Argentina is a magical place to live, but it's such an enormous country that deciding upon which city to reside in can be tricky. Below are three popular places to live in Argentina, along with information about the different types of housing available, and the most desirable neighbourhoods in each one.

In Argentina, most of the work opportunities for expats are in the big cities, specifically in the Banking, ICT and Oil sectors. If you are not skilled in one of these areas, you might find it tricky to get paid work in the country, but there are certain places where its easier to get a job than others. Below we have listed the five best cities to begin your job hunt.  

As an expat in Argentina, you will most likely need a visa of some kind, unless you are planning to stay for less than three months. Although the procedures may be complex, you must hold a valid visa if you are planning to settle here, so don't pay attention to anyone who encourages you to move to Argentina without one; you'll only find yourself waiting with masses of other illegal immigrants to get your official documents.

With all the accommodation options in Argentina, finding a housing solution that suits you should not be a problem, whether you are visiting for a brief period of time, or whether you plan to move here for the long term. Prices are reasonable but may vary according to seasonal demands, such as the beginning of the academic year and throughout the tourist season.

Since the economic crisis of 2001,  the Argentine economy has seriously improved. Several years of sustained economic growth have permitted the country to resume its development. Nevertheless, unemployment and job insecurity remain high in the country, and illegal work and immigration are recurrent problems. Many Argentines unfortunately still live below the poverty line.
