In order to foster the Talent Attraction Plan, led by the Global Services Program of Uruguay XXI, an 8-day fast track is available to access Temporary Visas and Residences. This procedure was jointly developed by the Ministries of the Interior (National Directorate of Migration) and Foreign Affairs.

Through this Fast-track, investors and employees working at companies exporting services may request a temporary residence (valid for 2 years and renewable for 2 additional years) and/or visa. After submitting the required documents, the residence will be obtained in 8 business days.

This fast track is particularly helpful as the procedure can be started in Uruguay or abroad.

See requirements and steps to follow in these links, which will depend on the applicant’s origin.
