What are the updates? Immigration appointments for residence permit applications are now being scheduled within five business days after all relevant application documents have been uploaded to the online system. Additionally, a new office has been set up to process expedited criminal record certificate requests.
What do the updates mean?
RADEX appointments. The online residence visa application system (RADEX) is now allotting immigration appointments more regularly and with shorter notice after applicants submit the necessary documents online. Immigration appointments are scheduled within five business days following submission of the required documents through the RADEX system. Once the appointment time is assigned, it cannot be rescheduled and employees will have to attend their appointment to finalize their residence permit.
Expedited criminal record certificates are now available. Expedited criminal record certificate requests may now be submitted through a new Registro Nacional de Residencia office and will be issued within one hour. Expedited certificates are available at a service charge of 500 Argentine pesos (about US$13) from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Employers should check if the service is available in their jurisdiction.
Analysis & Comments: The changes will shorten processing times for residence permit applications, as appointments will be easier to obtain through the online system, although employers will have to ensure that employees are able to attend appointments that may be booked on short notice. Employees who require criminal record certificates from Argentina will now have the option of expediting the document and receiving it within one hour.
