There is a growing tendency among Russian pregnant women to go to the South American country of Argentina to obtain citizenship for their children.
According to the British Broadcasting Corporation, Argentina’s immigration authorities have said that more than 5,000 pregnant Russian women have entered Argentina in recent months.
According to the authorities, 33 pregnant Russian women arrived in Argentina in just one flight last Thursday.
According to media reports, the National Migration Agency said that all the women arrived in Argentina in the last weeks of pregnancy.
According to the agency, the arrival of women in Argentina in the last weeks of pregnancy indicates that women want to give birth in Argentina in order to obtain citizenship because Russian passports do not have such freedom.
The National Migration Agency has also said that the Russian women are said to be coming to the country for sightseeing purposes.
The agency further said that Argentina’s passport is protected worldwide and holders of Argentina’s passport enjoy free visa in 171 countries.
It is being said by the local media that one of the reasons for the increase in the arrival of pregnant Russian women to Argentina may be the Russia-Ukraine war.
