752 days after Uruguay declared a state of health emergency due to the COVID-19 epidemic, pretty much all Uruguay travel restrictions were lifted on April 1 2022.
What are the Uruguay entry requirements you need to be aware of when travelling to Uruguay?
- 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 cannot show this proof, you will need to 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 people, aged six and older.
- You must have health insurance which covers your stay in Uruguay.
Since August 2022, you no longer need to complete any forms or health declarations.
And that’s it!
How to conduct yourself once in Uruguay
