Argentina’s Move to Electronic Visa Filings Results in Delays
Argentina’s transition to an electronic filing system for visa and work permit applications has produced lengthy processing delays. The Direccion Nacional de Migraciones (DNM)’s new electronic system eliminates jurisdictional rules and allows companies to submit documents at any DNM office as all DNM offices have access to uploaded applications. However, applicants must still appear in person to file the application. Employers should take these processing delays into account when handling in-country immigration applications.
