strong points

The practice of Russian women moving to another country to give birth to a child
This practice increased after the Russia Ukraine war, with women traveling to Argentina
The women chose this country because of the visa and other facilities

New Delhi. These days, hundreds of Russian women travel to Argentina to give birth to their child. This trend has emerged since the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war. The Guardian reported that after the war in Ukraine which started in February last year, the travel of Russian women to the South American country of Argentina, especially to give birth, was noticed. Here it is customary to travel to another country for the purpose of giving birth to a child and obtaining citizenship.

Also, Russians do not need a visa in Argentina. They can stay for up to 90 days and can be easily extended. And applying for a residence permit is also easy. Polina Cherepovitskaya expressed her views on this. She comes from Russia and was waiting her turn in the maternity ward of a hospital in Buenos Aires. He said that along with me, 8 Russian women also came to this hospital to give birth. Hundreds of Russian women came here and gave birth to their children.

Around 10,000 women have reached Argentina this year
The isolation of Russia and Moscow from Western countries has made Argentina a favorite destination for families seeking a second nationality for their children. Georgy Polin, head of the consular department at the Russian embassy in Argentina, said 2,000 to 2,500 Russians will move to Argentina in 2022 and many of them are Russian women planning to give birth. Polin said this year that number could reach 10,000.

Parents applying for Argentine citizenship
Many parents are now considering living in Buenos Aires and applying for Argentine citizenship for themselves, a simplified process as they are now parents of an Argentine child. One of the advantages of the Argentine passport was that citizens could make short-term visa-free visits to 171 countries, including the European Union, the United Kingdom and Japan.

Many European countries have made it almost impossible for Russians to travel
Before the war in Ukraine, Russian citizens could visit nearly 80 countries without a visa. However, after Russian President Putin sent troops to Ukraine, several European countries made it nearly impossible for Russians to travel, while Western consulates in Moscow saw month-long queues for visas. A child born in Argentina to foreign parents has a relatively easy path to Argentine citizenship, which can be arranged in less than two years.
