  1. Hi, I know that even if the required apostilled documents, like birth certificate, need to be translated oficcialy by an Uruguayan translator, even if they are in spanish. My question is: is it better to have my documents in the language of my country, which is czech, or to have these translated to spanish beforehand? Because czech is not a world language and may be more difficult to have translated in Uruguay. As a citizen of an EU country I have the possibility to have my legal documents translated to spanish for free.

    Thanks.

    1. Hey Ondrej, I just interviewed a relocation expert about this this week. They need to be translated by an official Uruguayan translator. I know quite a few Czech people here, so you won’t be the first! Best, Karen

  2. Hi there,

    I was hoping to get some clarity around residency. If I am able to work remotely for a British company, maintain my UK tax residency (I am required due to familial commitment), am I able to still acquire a resident permit that will allow me to become a permanent resident?

    Many Thanks,
    Yoshi

    1. Hi Yoshi, Mark is away so I’ll risk an answer, but obviously you’ll want to consult with an expert. My understanding is that Uruguay does not double-tax. In addition residency does not have anything to do with taxation directly. To get residency you need to prove you can support yourself is all. Of course if you work in Uruguay you do need to register at the tax office. Hope this helps! — Karen
