How long does it take to move to Uruguay?

Germans, Austrians and Swiss entering the country as tourists do not need a visa for a stay of up to 90 days. Those who wish to stay longer in the country must apply for an extension of stay at the responsible immigration office before the 90 days have expired. If it is planned to extend one's stay, it is still advantageous to always have a return ticket.

An identity card is not sufficient.To apply for a "residencia legal" (legal residence) you need the following documents: original entry document (passport), health certificate (issued in Uruguay) and vaccination certificate, passport photo, police clearance certificate (from your home country or the country where you have lived for the last 5 years), birth certificate, marriage certificate, proof that you can support yourself.

Moving to Uruguay - Costs
Because there are so many variables, it is usually difficult to estimate how much international removals cost as they often vary considerably. In any case, when planning your move Uruguay, you should take the following factors into account.
Mode of transport:
Moving by air freight is generally the fastest, but also more expensive. Alternatively, there is transport by sea freight, which is usually cheaper. See our information on sea freight and air freight, among other things, for details on container sizes.
Size of the move:
The size and weight of the possessions, will affect the cost as the calculation of the price is based on the weight and space requirements of the goods to be moved.

Special moving boxes and packaging are the best solution to ensure fragile items are transported safely
Moving to Uruguay, like any international move, is a challenge. Often both modes of transport are used in combination, the most important by air freight and the rest of your goods by sea freight.
Not all Spanish is the same when it comes to the language in Uruguay. Latin American Spanish in Uruguay shows differences in pronunciation and grammar compared to Castilian Spanish, which is spoken in Spain. To understand the background, it is important to know that the language in Uruguay has been shaped by different national cultures.
Immigrants from Italy, France, Portugal and Germany have also left their linguistic influences. The Spanish spoken by the population in Uruguay has been significantly influenced by the Italian population.
On the Brazilian border, on the other hand, Portuguese influences are noticeable; here you will find the language Portunol, a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese. English is one of the modern economic and educational languages and is therefore also spoken as a second language by many people in Uruguay. Dialects are not very widespread in Uruguay.  Most people who move to Uruguay from Germany usually bring a large part of their possessions with them. However, to ensure that not only the transport, but also the entire relocation goes off without complications, you should take care of the formalities as best you can beforehand.

Alphaservice Umzüge for your move to Uruguay


Officially República Oriental del Uruguay is a state in the southern cone of South America. It is the smallest Spanish-speaking country in South America. Uruguay borders Brazil to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Río de la Plata to the south and Argentina to the west (separated by the Río Uruguay). After the arrival of European settlers, the horses and cattle abandoned by the Spanish developed into large herds on the vast grasslands of the pampas, which formed the basis of the country's economic wealth.
Uruguay is one of the most stable, democratic and prosperous countries in Latin America today. The full name of the country of Uruguay is "Eastern Republic of Uruguay". In the Guarani language, from which the name derives, Uruguay has different meanings depending on the interpretationWith 176,215 square kilometres of surface area (of which about 2,600 square kilometres is water), it is as large as Austria and Hungary combined, or about half the size of Germany.
Uruguay shares a 985-kilometre border with Brazil to the north and a 579-kilometre border with Argentina to the west. The coast is 660 kilometres long.The climate is subtropical in the north and temperate in the south. In the coastal regions, temperatures are similar to the climates of the coastal regions of southern France, northern Italy and northern Spain, with clearly defined thermal seasons. The average annual temperature there is 16.5 °C. The warmest month is January with about 22 °C, while June is the coolest month, with an average of 10 °C. In the interior, the average annual temperature is slightly higher, mainly due to the warmer summer temperatures.
Montevideo, the capital, with almost 1.5 million inhabitants, is the only major city and also the most important port city in the country. It not only concentrates almost half of the population, but also the country's industry and trade, which is why Uruguay is often jokingly referred to as "a city with a few farms in the hinterland". Montevideo is also a centre of Latin American politics (Montevideo is the seat of ALADI and the Mercosur Secretariat). The city is also considered very safe by Latin American standards.  Form of government: Uruguay is a republicThe constitution of 1967 established a democratic presidential republic based on the rule of law. The state structure is centralised, and the 19 provinces (departamentos) have only limited self-government.
The Constitution of Uruguay is modelled on the Constitution of Spain, was adopted on 27 November 1966 and came into force in February 1967. On 27 June 1973, the military government suspended the constitution, but it failed to enforce a new constitution by referendum on 30 November 1980.After the creation of the state of Uruguay, a two-party system became established. The conservative Partido Nacional (formerly Partido Blanco 'White Party') was opposed by the liberal Partido Colorado ('Red Party'). The Communist Party was legalised in 1985. Since the early 1990s, new parties have emerged and revitalised the party landscape. Since 1 March 2020, Uruguay has been governed by President Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou of the Partido Nacional, whose father previously held the post from 1990 to 1995.
Uruguay is divided into 19 historically grown Departamentos (including the autonomous city of Montevideo). The departments are headed by the Intendente Municipal, who is elected by the departmental parliaments (junta departamental). Since the state structure is centralised, the 19 provinces (Departamentos) have only limited self-government.
