Business Culture in Argentina

In Argentina, business interactions often emphasize personal relationships, respect, and professionalism. Punctuality is appreciated, though locals may sometimes run late. Small talk is important to establish rapport before diving into business topics. Argentine business structures can be hierarchical, with final decisions typically coming from the top. Business cards are exchanged at the beginning of a meeting, and meetings are often concluded with a handshake.

Employment Law

Employment Law in Argentina

Relevant Legislation: Argentine employment law is mainly regulated by the Labour Contract Law (Law No. 20,744).

Employment Contracts: Contracts should be in writing and include essential details like duration of employment, working hours, salary, and termination notice periods.

Working Hours: The standard working time in Argentina is 48 hours per week, or 8 hours per day.

Leave: Employees in Argentina are entitled to various types of leave, including paid annual leave (starting from 14 days per year), maternity leave, paternity leave, sick leave, and family care leave.

Overtime: Argentine law regulates overtime work. Typically, overtime pay should be at least 1.5 times the regular hourly wage for the first two hours of overtime work per day, and 2.0 times the regular hourly wage for additional hours of overtime work.

Termination: Both the employee and employer must provide notice before terminating an employment contract. 

Notice: The notice period generally ranges from 15 days to one month. Termination for cause, such as poor performance or misconduct, must be justified. Unjust termination can lead to lawsuits.

Severance Pay: If an employee is dismissed without just cause, they may be entitled to severance pay. The amount generally depends on their length of service.


Work Permits in Argentina

The immigration process in Argentina is organized and systematic, similar to most countries worldwide. Prospective immigrants usually need to apply for a specific visa or residency permit that corresponds to their reasons for relocating, such as work, education, or joining family members.

Argentina’s immigration policies are governed by the National Directorate of Migration (Dirección Nacional de Migraciones). The country welcomes immigrants and has various visa categories, catering to different needs like work, study, or family reunification.

  1. Temporary Residence Visa: Foreign nationals who have an employment contract with an Argentine employer are eligible for a Temporary Residence Visa. The visa is usually valid for one year and can be renewed annually. After two years of continuous legal residence, a foreigner can apply for permanent residence.

  2. Work Visa: Foreigners coming to Argentina for work purposes need a work visa. To obtain this visa, they must have a confirmed job offer from an Argentine employer. The employer must complete the necessary paperwork in Argentina, including filing the employment contract with the immigration authorities. Once approved, the foreigner can apply for the visa at an Argentine embassy or consulate in their home country.

  3. Permanent Residence Visa: This is granted to foreigners who have resided in the country legally for at least two years and can demonstrate a stable source of income. This could be from employment, retirement funds, or proof of other financial resources.

  4. Family Reunification Visa: This is for foreign nationals who have immediate family members (spouse, minor children, or parents) who are Argentine residents or citizens. The Argentine family member must provide evidence of their relationship and ability to support the immigrant.

  5. Student Visa: Foreign students accepted into an Argentine educational institution can apply for a Student Visa. The visa’s duration usually aligns with the length of the course. Student visas do not automatically grant the right to work in Argentina. However, students may apply for permission to work part-time.

Citizens from Mercosur member countries (Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) and associated countries (Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Suriname) can freely enter, live and work in Argentina under the Mercosur Residence Agreement.

All non-citizen residents planning to stay in Argentina for more than 12 months are required to obtain a DNI (Documento Nacional de Identidad), which serves as a national identification card.
