ARGENTINA – Registered Partners Can Now Obtain Dependent Immigration Status

Effective 13 October 2015, Argentina has expanded the eligibility criteria for dependent immigration status to include registered partners (including same-sex partners).

An order published on 1 October 2015 allows any partner duly registered as such to apply for dependent immigration status. The Argentinian immigration office has not yet processed dependent visas for partners registered abroad, so it remains to be seen how this will work in practice.

Action Items

  • Ensure that unmarried partners are duly registered if they intend to apply for dependent immigration status.
  • Expect further clarification on registration requirements for registrations that took place abroad.
