Given the favorable evolution of the pandemic in Uruguay, mainly as a result of the strong vaccination campaign promoted by the Government (to date, a percentage greater than 70% of the population immunized with two doses of any of the vaccines against the COVID-19, and about 10% of it already has a third booster dose from the Pfizer laboratory), the entry of foreigners has gradually begun to be made more flexible through the opening of borders (both land and air and maritime).
To the already known exceptions that allowed foreigners to enter the country (to know in detail the existing causes, you can visit the following link: https://insight-trust.com/en/causes-for-the-entry-of-foreigners-to-uruguay-in-times-of-pandemic/) a new cause has been added through Decree 279/021 (to see the Decree click here) issued on August 26, 2021, which allows entry to Uruguay, as of September 1, 2021, of foreigners, along with their families, who own properties directly or indirectly in the country, who are fully immunized and present a negative PCR test upon arrival.

On the other hand, it is required that those who enter the country for this reason, present the form that is attached to the decree (Annex I), and it is established that, in the case of foreign citizens under 18 years of age, who come from a country where vaccination has not yet been authorized for their age group, they must complete isolation together with their family.
How is the procedure expected to be carried out?
It has been communicated by the authorities that the application for admission for this new cause will be processed online through the web www.gub.uy/ingreso-uruguay-para-extranjeros, where following the step by step you will be required to the interested party the documents required by the regulations.
To begin the process through said website, you must previously have a digital user which is processed easily through the website https://mi.iduruguay.gub.uy/registro.
Once the entry authorization has been approved, the interested party will be notified via email (to the email entered at the time of the request), attaching the corresponding authorization and it will be valid for 60 days from its issuance.
Likewise, although there is still no established regulation and it is intended to see how the aforementioned border opening stage evolves, the Uruguayan Government has already announced the intention to further open the borders for November 1, 2021, allowing entry to the country of all those completely immunized foreigners who present a negative PCR upon entry.
