Hi, can anyone give me advice on whether it's possible to have an Argentine bank account.
I've traveled to Argentina about 30 times in the last 15 years, always as a tourist, for about 60 days a year. We have a house here.
I'm wondering if a foreigner can open a local bank account in order to transfer money, buy stuff on mercadolibre, pay domestic staff etc. I normally bring in USD and change to pesos at the blue rate, but I feel like a bank robber these days carrying huge wedges of cash around!
Also, using a foreign card to pay for things online like domestic flights and hotels etc. is very expensive.
I have a UK passport and driving license. I don't have and don't particularly want a DNI, in case I get problems with the tax police.
