In early 2012, the government of Argentina established a new non-tariff barrier for service imports.

By this resolution, the Argentinean government determined that:

  • Individuals residing in the country, that are providers and / or outside service suppliers, must provide the information indicated on the web site "DJAS' available at: http://www. afip.gob.ar, a member of the "Electronic Single Window for Foreign Trade" service.
  • The system will assign an identification number to each DJAS that is presented.
  • The information recorded in such affidavits shall be made available to the Organizations that form part of the mechanism established by this resolution, according to their competence in the matter.
  • The Organizations that want to be part of this mechanism should manifest their interest, in a period not exceeding 15 days from the publishing of this resolution.
  • The number of 'DJAS' should be reported and registered under the Foreign Exchange Control System, established by the General Resolution No. 3210.
