Hola todo,

I've been living in the Bariloche area for awhile now and came across a Canadian woman living here who says she is unable to buy a car because she is not able to get an Argentine taxid. She was told that the "law changed" and now people who do not have residence cannot get a taxid now, and because of that, cannot buy a car.

I've been here for three years and I was able to get a taxid and buy my car in November of 2004.

I would like to help this new friend as I know how difficult these small things can be to overcome, and how discouraging they can be.

Does anyone know what is going on? Is this a problem in Buenos Aires also?

Hi Xander, call up the AFIP yourself if you want to hear the truth. They even have a lot of their web page in English now: AFIP
good luck..I wonder who told your friend that, maybe there was a mis-understanding in the conversation.

Quite possible there was a misunderstanding. (That often happens here.) I believe it was the AFIP office in Bariloche, but I'll have to confirm that.

My Spanish is not good enough to converse in detail over the phone. I'll suggest she get a translator to call AFIP.

Hi Xander,

Did your Canadian friend find out if she can get a CDI? Is there an AFIP office in Bariloche that gives out CDIs?

Also, to register a used car, does one need a DNI? If not, what is required in terms of documentation? Where does one go to do this?

Muchas gracias,

David
