Welcome To Expat Argentina

To the foreign visitor, Argentina and Buenos Aires can be both exciting and overwhelming. The immense sprawl of the city, the beauty of the countryside, the porteƱos and their soccer madness... it's all part of what makes this country unique. Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, Argentina offers the foreign visitor a wealth of opportunities. This website is a simple attempt to share my experience with other foreign travelers, business people, and expatriates. I welcome your comments and questions. See you in Buenos Aires.

Dear El Expatriado,

I am moving to Argentina in Aug 2004 and although I am not self-employed like you are, if I find a job I will have to go through the same Visa process. Would you mind giving me the information of the lawyer you used for all the Visa process? Also, do you know by any chance about this expat BBQs that occur every month for networking purposes? My fiancee is been relocated to Buenos Aires with his Co and I am going with him but without a job and have no clue were to start looking and I read about this BBQs on the net.

Thanks a lot for your help,

Hello my dearest and most adored friend and fellow blogger (form letter warning)!

I don't know if you do a lot of "civic-duty" type stuff ...but in case you don't ...I got a quick and dirty for YOU!

There's a bill before the US Congress right now that they call H.R.1739 ...and it needs a bunch of snailmail letters (email and phonecalls are cool, too, but they love that ol' postage stamp and ink on paper... shows commitment to their minds ...they're probably right.)

Do you think you could see yer way clear toward letting people know that the above mentioned House Resolution that would grant the same rights to expats that the law does to US military personnel? Truth be told, it will add a couple of features that will help G.I. Joe, as well.

Just mention it, that's all I'm asking. You don't have to mention my name ...but if it makes it easier on ya, I've got a post up (http://yanquimike.blogspot.com/2009/06/sorry-to-bother-you-but.html) that includes an email link to me that people can use to get my personal help.

I'll do all the leg-work.

Some a youse guys aren't Yanks. That's OK. But just in case anybody'd like to see the US impose democracy on its own people for once ...you might like passing the word along. I'm giving you that opportunity.

The thing is called H.R.1739 and it could use some handwritten, snailmail letters to Washington from US citizens of every political stripe... especially to these two guys:

Hon. Robert A. Brady
Chairman, Committee on House Administration
U.S. House of Representatives
1309 Longworth Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Hon. Daniel Lungren
Ranking Member, Committee on House Administration Republican Office
U.S. House of Representatives
1313 Longworth Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

The bill wants to do something along the following:

make sure that every voter, regardless of uniform, gets to exercise their right to vote in any election in any state,
stop election boards from throwing out computer generated ballots if they comply with all the rest of the rules,
allow US citizens outside the country to register to vote only once during their stay abroad,
eliminate 19th century notarization requirements that some locals still insist upon,
ensure that US citizens born overseas (that have never lived in the US) can vote using their parents' last voting address,
...and best of all, maybe, require that a US voter at least be notified before election day if their ballot or registration is rejected!

All that would go a long way toward making life easier for those people here in Argentina that think that they really DO have a right to exercise their vote.

It ain't voting at the embassy like civilized countries ...but it's more than we have now.

Wouldya, couldya?

If it's too much trouble to put all that in a post, you could just refer them to me...

..and I'll handle each and every inquiry with great respect and gratefulness to you and your blog.

Yours in art and labor,
Mike
