You are always welcome to apply for permanent residence in Argentina. If you don’t have time to wait for a plastic ID Card, you don’t have to do this immediately after the child is delivered. Because given the permanent residence in Argentina does not offer any benefits when traveling outside of the country, the process is only worthwhile if you want to stay in Argentina for an extended period of time.
