Sorry for the late response, just noticed this. No, I didn't. I've been operating on tourist permits for the last 1.5 years/13 countries.

My understanding is that import taxes are based on the new price of the vehicle...the taxes are more than the current value of the car I think.

BTW, presently entertaining low-ball offers to save the trip to Paraguay. The car is presently in Rosario if anyone wants to check it out. If you want to explore South America, this is definitely the way to do it.

Looking to make a fair deal. I'm guessing its worth about 16k in BA, 12k in Paraguay, 7k in the States. I'll open the discussion by asking U$D 11,000 obo for a quick and easy transaction.
Then I don't understand why you are dubiously implying your car is worth over twice as much in BsAs as it is in the states if it is only there on a short term tourist permit. You are clearly aware that high import customs are the reason car prices are nearly double in BsAs, so why would a car that hasn't paid a dime in customs and can't stay legally long term be 60%-130% more valuable than it is in the states?

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Anyone know where I can find a shop that sells hiking/camping equipment?
I need backpack(a big one, around 100 liters) but all the stores I see only sell normal luggage stuff and small backpacks, so I thought maybe I could find what I'm looking for in a hiking/outdoorsy kinda store.
Preferably in centro, Recoleta or Palermo.

If, by chance, someone's got an old backpack they want to sell maybe we can work something out.

There are a few Montagne around town, they sell all that stuff. There's one on Cordoba y Godoy cruz i think. There's a North Face store in Alto Palermo, but that more just clothes.

Well, if you're in south America and want a sweet ride for traveling, you can buy one post tax for more or mine for less. If you're concerned about the argies getting they're tax money, by all means pay the extra.

The location of the vehicle increases it's value regardless of the reason. You seem like you're trolling anyways, so I'm not going to break down the definition of value any further.

Open to offers for 1 more day and then I'm heading to Paraguay (which you could do after you're done with it an turn a profit).

there are rumors that the permatourist loophole might be coming to an end. anybody had any experiences like this, especially when re-entering by BuqueBus from Colonia?

don't Mercosur countries have the right to immigrate though? i'm pretty sure Paraguayans can't be denied entry to Argentina if they fill out the paperwork.

There's much discussion on this at baexpats.com

It seems like it is actually targeting western countries, though there's still lots of variance.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I had like 50 entry stamps in my old passport and would always get the same questions about what I am doing here, yada yada. (By the way, 'I have an Argentine gf' seems to work best). Then I had to replace my thick old passport with a new empty one, and they haven't said anything yet. I am sure they can pull up all your entry history, but I doubt they would without a reason, and a phone book sized passport full of entry stamps might be enough.

Just saying, if things do get bad, then it might be time to 'lose' your passport.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I definitely have thought about losing my passport if they put "last time" in there. They wrote something on my passport when I left and paid the overstayed visa fine, but no problems getting back in, although I made sure to distract the migraciones clerk with conversation about being Boquenses.

My guess is that the people who have problems are the people who have only gone to Uruguay every 3 months exactly and thus the clerk at migraciones gets annoyed.

the expat forum is mostly worthless, imho.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Just thought I'd let you guys know, the general feeling at the Buquebus port to Colonia seems to have changed. This is my third trip to Colonia with my car via Buquebus, and this time I was thoroughly scrutinized. I think there were 5 different dogs in my car, and about 7 customs officers involved in the operation. Everything was taken out of my car and thoroughly inspected. They also asked when I was returning, to which I answered "mucho tiempo, un ano minimo (the approximate truth)". Normally it's very chill.

Obviously I'm in a different situation, but I thought I would report back regardless. Cheers.

Moving down next week for 2 months in BA, looking forward to meeting some of you. How many of the 2p2 expats play for a living and how many are just there to live?

My guess is (excluding Argies) 30 in the summer and 15 in the winter. Maybe we can start up the 2p2 dinners again if we can build a quorum.

Well I will be moving down with 2 other Americans and a Scotsman so that's a start for the dinner crew. I'm only around for 2 months but maybe I'll be back after Christmas.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

i might be up for a lunch club. maybe i'll start throwing out days and places. dinner is always more complicated for me these days, especially since i live out in the provincia.

my guess would be higher than imakefrush's, but he might have his finger more on the pulse than I do. the thing is that the folks who have been here for over 2 years have largely stopped hanging out with new groups of 2p2ers.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

We are having some trouble finding a 4br place in a nice neighborhood. I've checked the sites recommended here: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...postcount=1503

but there are very few 4 bedroom places and a lot of the sites are out of date (available places are actually booked). Any ideas? We are considering getting two 2br places close to each other but would prefer not to.
