For Permanent Residents
Unlike many other nations, obtaining citizenship in Argentina is relatively straightforward.
The first step is to obtain your visa, which will allow you to live in the country for one year on a temporary
residence permit. When the year has expired, the visa can be extended for an additional year. At the end of the second year,
the visa can be extended again for another year. At the end of the third year, you can extend the visa again and receive
permanent residency. At this point you will be legally entitled to reside in the Argentina permanently. Two years after
receiving your permanent residency, you may apply for citizenship.
What is necessary?
You should speak fluent Spanish, know some general Argentine culture and politics to discuss in an interview,
have been living in Argentina most of the time during those previous 2 years as a permanent resident, and have produced
income / worked in Argentina and paid taxes in Argentina.
