752 days after Uruguay declared a state of health emergency due to the COVID-19 epidemic, pretty much all restrictions were lifted on April 1 2022. That includes for travellers planning to visit.

What are the requirements you need to be aware of when travelling to Uruguay?

Show proof of vaccination or absence of the virus

Those are the main requirements for travel to Uruguay at this time. You do not need to show a negative test (unless unvaccinated), get tested after arrival or quarantine.

If you are vaccinated

Show proof of vaccination as approved in your country of origin (one or two shots depending on the recommended dosis). Proof must be emitted by the health authority of your country.

If you had Covid in the last 90 days prior to embarking or arrival in Uruguay

Show a positive PCR or antigen test carried out a maximum of 90 days and up to 10 days prior to embarkation or arrival. The result must be uploaded to your health declaration as well as be presented to the company with which you are travelling prior to embarking.

If you are unvaccinated

Show a negative PCR or antigen test carried out not more than 72 hours prior to the embarking by a certified laboratory in your country of origin or transit. This is required for all unvaccinated, aged six and older.

Complete the Uruguayan health declaration

This form must be completed online within 48 hours of embarking. You must use the same ID as you will use to enter Uruguay. The form is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Have health coverage

You must have health insurance which covers your stay in Uruguay.

And that’s it!

How to conduct yourself once in Uruguay

The Uruguay Ministry of Health requests that you use a face mask and maintain a distance of 2 metres when you are in close contact with other people.

No time period is mentioned for this.

All Uruguayans will be grateful that you follow this measure, particularly for the time period when you could be potentially incubating the virus. We will love you all the more for it. And appreciate you’re looking out for the local population.
