Why Expats are moving to this Country

Why not move to a country that focuses its flag on sunshine?

If you are interested in moving to this country, then you may want to visit for a short period first to get a feel for the country. A valid passport is required for entry into Uruguay with the exception of citizens from the boundary countries. U.S. citizens do not need a visa to stay in this country for less than 90 days. Business-oriented visas are available; contact the embassy for details.

Any foreign visitor can apply for a residency visa, and should apply to the immigration office in his or her country of residence. In general terms, the requirements are owning a property in the country, and/or a bank account with adequate funds, having a clean police record in the country of residency, and having proof of income or a work permit. All documents will have to be authenticated by a public notary. Any person visiting this country for business purposes can go to the consulate or embassy.

According to Uruguayan immigration law, people who move to Uruguay and are granted permanent residency in this country are also entitled to a Uruguayan passport. This applies to the primary visa holder, as well as the spouse and children (under 18 years of age). The law states that you (and your dependents) are entitled to a pasaporte común (common passport). A common passport is one that is not diplomatic or military in nature. Most Uruguayans have this type of passport. You can apply at the Department of Immigration.

You might ask yourself why a U.S. citizen would want a Uruguayan passport, given that the U.S. passport is much more flexible to travel with. Good question. First, a Uruguayan passport entitles you to enter Brazil without a visa. There are also a few practical reasons. One is that some countries have cumulative limits on how long you can stay within their borders in a given year. If you alternate the use of passports, you can double your stay time, which would be handy if you have a part-time home in such a country. Also, you can avoid reciprocal fees and visa requirements imposed on U.S. citizens in places like Chile and Brazil, among others. (These fees are imposed in retaliation for similar fees or visa requirement imposed on their citizens by the U.S.) Some countries also waive their airport exit fees for their neighbors if you're carrying their passport.

Moving to here and bringing your possessions with you

When it comes to moving large volumes or covering long distances, it is preferable to let professional movers take charge of the removal process.

Here are some moving tips to help you prepare for your move:

Prepare your move 3 months in advance.

You may have to obtain visas, work permits or vaccines, or cancel services which require a notice period. Make a list of all you need to do. Being well-organized will help the move go more smoothly.

Sort through your belongings

Choose which goods you want to bring with you and which goods you want to leave behind, with a friend or in a storage unit. Seek advice: It might be more advantageous to buy goods instead of bringing these goods with you.

Choose the right moving company in Uruguay

finding a good moving company is essential to any expatriation project. Independent regulatory bodies like FIDI will help you find reliable moving companies. Internal quality processes, specialized packing materials and a large network will guarantee high standards of quality and service.

Prevent the risk of breakage

Zero risk does not exist. Material damage insurance is highly recommended.

There are several people at work on your behalf when bringing shipments into this country. On your departure end, you'll have a local moving agent who works with you on getting the entire move booked. On the Uruguayan end, you'll have the Uruguayan moving agent. This one works for the moving company who is completing your move in this country, and is your primary authority when you have questions about Uruguayan regulations. He processes these moves every day for diplomats, expats, and business people, and knows how the system works.

A despachante is a private professional who specializes in import/export. He provides the point interface between various moving agents and the Customs agent. You, as the shipper, will normally not have contact with this person.

The Customs agent is a government employee who performs inspections and enforces Customs regulations. The public does not interface directly with this agent.
