Argentina – Change in Permanent Residence Requirements for Minors

What has changed

Implemented on March 29, 2017, and effective immediately, Permanent Residence (with no expiration date) for minors now requires approval from only one (1) parent. Previously, provided that the minor had a double parental bond, both parents’ consent was required.

Who is affected?

  • All clients who are applying for a Permanent Residence with/for their children

What to expect

This new regulation (Disposition No. 1489/2017) is based on a new interpretation of the Civil and Commercial Code (“CCCN”), which amends what previously stated by Disposition No. 4880/2015. The simplification will allow for a more streamlined process for the documentation of minors.
