2. Visa for those nationalities that require it.

3. Certificate of Vaccination Scheme in force in your country.

4. Health Card issued in Uruguay.

5. A passport photo

6. Criminal Record Certificate (from the country of origin and where you and your family lived for the last 5 years), duly legalized and translated if applicable. Children only from 18 years onwards.

7. Birth certificate 8. Marriage, divorce, death certificate. What corresponds

9. Livelihoods that demonstrate that you can be sustained in Uruguay. This document can be presented later on, once you have a job or have open a business.

All documents will have to be apostilled. In case they cannot be apostilled because your country is not part of the Hague Apostille protocol, it will have to be certified by the institution that originated the document and by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of your country
