Good morning all.
I returned to BA on 29 SEP 22 after leaving BA on 07 APR 20 for shoulder surgery in Florida. And then the country performed a lengthy hard shut down; during which time (on 19 MAY 21) my two year pensioner visa / DNI expired.
I've been repeatedly advised that Migracion understands that such pandemic caused circumstances were beyond the control of the pensioner visa / DNI holders and thus, that Migracion has made the process of renewal considerably easier than the usual tramite ordeal. However, when I attempt to initiate the process via RADEX, it seems that I must start fully anew due to the DNI being more than 60 days out - even though the country was closed for well over a year. I believe until about NOV 21.
I suppose that I could just overstay my existing tourist visa (90 days + 90 days), and pay a negligible fine, but I respect the laws and so wish to hold a valid DNI. If anyone here could please recommend an honest immigration attorney, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks and regards, Thomas
