PROCEDURES FOR THE IMPORTATION OF PROPERTIES FOR ARGENTINIANS RETURNING DEFINITIVELY TO THE REPUBLIC

"GENERAL RESOLUTION AFIP 3109/2011"

ARGENTINEANS RETURNING TO THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN AFTER HAVING BEEN ABROAD FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS, AND FOREIGNERS GETTING PERMANENT RESIDENCE IN THE ARGENTINE REPUBLIC, CAN IMPORT THEIR PERSONAL AND HOUSEHOLD BELONGINGS, BOTH NEW AND USED, ONLY FOR THE USE OF THE BENEFICIARY OR HIS FAMILY GROUP. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT QUANTITY, NATURE OR ASSORTMENT HAVE NOT TO BE SUCH AS TO SUPPOSE AN IMPORT FOR SALE OR INDUSTRIAL PURPOSES.
