    My wife has found her job through InterNations. That is great as our fresh start in Buenos Aires was kind of tough for us both.

Living in Salta

Hola! Situated in the beautiful North West of Argentina sits the vibrant city of Salta, nicknamed “La Linda.” Salta is lucky to have a subtropical highland climate, with locals experiencing lots of sun and fine weather. The most prominent sport played and followed in Salta is soccer with three notorious local clubs with large followings; these are Gimnasia y Tiro de Salta, Juventud Antoniana and Central Norte. However, if soccer isn’t your thing, the locals also enjoy baseball, basketball, volleyball and rugby among others. It is easy to engage in a variety of sports as the city is surrounded by fantastic scenery, perfect for expats living in Salta who are nature and adventure lovers. Salta is one of the main cities in Argentina that has best preserved its colonial architecture. And expatriates in Salta can also enjoy exploring the rest of the Salta Province. Cafayate, for example, is a favorite destination for day or weekend trips and also home to an abundance of wineries. It is a small town, but an intimate place to build a community and experience a taste of Argentina. Regardless of how you plan to spend your free time, InterNations can help you socialize, network and meet other expats and global minds alike, kick starting your life in Argentina.

Moving to Salta

Expatriates moving to Salta will be glad to hear that housing in Salta is plentiful, with a variety of styles and flexible periods of duration that can best suit your needs. You have the option to either buy or rent, and to rent for a short stay or long-term. The properties available are houses, cottages and apartments, some within the city itself and some lying on the outskirts with land and sometimes even pools. The expat forums and discussions on the InterNations website can help you find insider tips for the perfect property, and can give you the support you need to start your life abroad. Argentina has both temporary and permanent visas for expats who want to try living there for a while before committing and those who are ready to dive straight in. You are able to apply for a permanent visa if you have family or a spouse who is Argentinian and living in the country.

Working in Salta

As many expats often encounter, one of the best work opportunities in Salta is teaching English. If you are a native speaker, then it is relatively easy to find a job as an English teacher, some schools not even requiring experience or a qualification. To be an English teacher, you don’t necessarily need to know Spanish, however, learning it will help integrate into your new community. Expats living in Salta can further try and find jobs in service roles, medical roles and a professional capacity. Many expatriates are sent by their current employer to start working in Salta, however, this is not always the case. Relocating without a job can often be daunting, as you have no guaranteed income, however, if you do there is a high chance that you will find work. If this seems too much then there are advertisements for jobs that you can find online and apply for before you go. On the InterNations forums, you can look for other expats experiences of looking for work to help you decide which route would suit you best.
