How to Get a Visitor Visa for Uruguay

Uruguay Visitor Visa

Uruguay Visitor Visa

Uruguay is an awesome place…especially Montevideo.  I had some of the best times traveling there as a graduate student. I actually spent a week there learning Spanish and had a blast.

If you are considering going there for tourism or business, you might need to get a visitor visa (also called “visa comun”) depending on what country you are from.  Citizens of a lot of countries (including the United States) don’t need a visa when going to Uruguay on a short trip for tourism or business.

(Go to my Uruguay visa page for information on other types of visas for Uruguay.)

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Uruguay Visitor Visa.

  • Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Uruguay:  No.
    • If you are traveling on a regular passport you do not need a visa for a visit of less than three months.
  • Visa required for non-U.S. citizens before you go to Uruguay:
