In order to work legally in Argentina it is necessary either to be a resident or have the appropriate working visa. Visas can be applied for through the Argentine consulate in the home country of residence.

If a person chooses to get a working visa through a company operating in Argentina, the paperwork must still go through a consulate, who liaises with the employer and the National Immigration Office (Dirección Nacional de Migraciones).
