Foreign citizens with the intention of residing permanently in the country (except for nationals of member states and MERCOSUR members) can apply for the retirement visa with a minimum monthly pension of US$1,500.
1. Gather the necessary documents and submit.
2. Within a week get a temporary residence and an Uruguayan identity card called ‘Cedula’.
3. After 3 months of temporary residence you are eligible to apply for permanent residency.
NOTE: If, after residency, you also wish to obtain Uruguayan citizenship (and a second passport), you need to wait three years (if married), or five years (if single). This period starts to run from the moment you first arrived in Uruguay to file for residency, and you need to spend at least six months out of each of those 3/5 years in the country to obtain citizenship.
