Buenos aires apartment rental faq
Buenos Aires Apartment Rental FAQ By David Burg Relocating to another country is never easy. It involves countless hours of research, phone time, and seemingly endless amounts of paperwork. Despite the hassles, thousands of expatriates make the decision make the move to Buenos Aires, Argentina every year. It might be the "buzz" of the city, the cost of living, or perhaps the beautiful people and culture, yet most agree: It's worth it. Whether you can afford a luxurious Buenos Aires apartment, or you're seeking something more economical - the city seems to offer something for everybody. There are many things to keep in mind though as you begin to navigate the exciting process of moving abroad. This article will address several common questions - and hopefully make the move easier.Do I need a visa to rent an apartment in Buenos Aires? No. Although some expatriates do have long-term visas, many foreigners live in BsAs without one. The requirements are different for each country, but if you're from the UK, EU, United States or Australia/New Zealand, you'll automatically be granted a 90-day visa upon entry. This can be extended to 6 months by visiting the immigration office. If you want to stay longer, you can travel to nearby Uruguay (a two hour boat ride), and re-enter Argentina with a new visa.Do I need a co-signer or credit to rent an apartment? Most foreigners do not rent apartments in the same way the Argentine citizens would. The easiest way to rent Buenos Aires apartments is through an apartment agency that works specifically with foreigners. They can usually offer a variety of furnished and temporary apartments without any co-signer or additional paperwork requirements. If you choose not to work through this kind of agency, you'll need a garantia. Basically, this is an Argentine citizen presently living (preferably owning property) in Buenos Aires who will vouch for you.What ID do I need in Argentina? Most foreigners find that a copy of their passport and perhaps a Driver License suffice for using credit cards, and renting in BA. Most businesses are used to dealing with foreigners. If you want to open a bank account or sign contracts though, you'll need a DNI (Documento Nacional de Identidad) and/or a CUIT (similar to a tax ID number). Both these require a lot of work to get, including a new visa status.Where are the best areas to live in Buenos Aires? You can find many luxury apartments all over the city, and every neighborhood has its own charm and character. Many foreigners choose to live in the popular neighborhoods of Palermo, Belgrano, or Recoleta - but you'll find expats in wonderful places all over the city. Furnished apartments in Buenos Aires can usually be found easiest in the aforementioned neighborhoods, though.Who can I contact to begin arranging my move to Argentina? There are many agencies that can help with arranging accommodation, but a select few have developed a well-deserved reputation for working with English-speaking clientele, and only working with dedicated apartment owners. Working with a reputable firm will make your move easier, and save you money in the long run.By David Burg, MySpaceBA.comEspecially if you're interested in renting luxury apartments in Buenos Aires, it's important to work with an agency that has contacts with the best buildings in the city. With the right agent, you can secure beautiful units your preferred neighborhood, including some apartments with pools in Buenos Aires. MySpaceBA has experience working with expatriates of all nationalities, and can provide a wide range of support to those relocating to Buenos Aires.

About John And Clara Boyle

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Mr. and Mrs. John and Clara Boyle. We met in Buenos Aires but married and lived in the Republic of Ireland where we ran a Bed & Breakfast in Ballina County Mayo, a lovely small tourist city on the Atlantic West coast. Using the experiance we had gained working in tourism in Ireland, we made the decision that we should go and live in my beautiful Argentina and continue to do the same there.
In december of 2003 we moved to Buenos Aires from Ireland and we started our business named My Space BA. In this case we offer to the tourists, bussiness people and students temporary accommodations in furnished apartments in the principle areas right in the heart of the city of Buenos Aires. We have inspected every one of the apartments. They all meet the conditions and requirements to make your stay a pleasant one. So if you are looking for a studio or apartment just to rest your head, or a luxury downtown pad, we are the people you want to have a word with.We love what we are doing and are both totally committed to our business.
