Some advice when you are considering moving to Uruguay
Learn a bit of the language. Be aware that people in the street or at the supermarket will only speak Spanish.
Take a time with tourist visa, before considering applying for legal residency. Uruguay may not be exactly as you expect.
Decide ahead if your goal will be obtaining legal residency plus citizenship or only legal residency. For applying to citizenship, there are some actions that you should take, that you would regret later if you have not taken them since the first moment.
In case you have a disease, research before coming, the quality of the assistance you will be able to get in Uruguay, as well as the access to the medicine you need.
Rent for a while before buying.
Rent a place in Pocitos (Montevideo) and from there research other areas. Pocitos is a safe place with excellent public but transportation to everywhere. You will not need a car staying there.
Do not underestimate winter in Uruguay, bring cloth according to the season.
When bringing more than 10 thousand dollars cash or in metals declare them in customs before leaving the port or airport.
When planning to open a bank account, get advice before coming of the documents you would need to bring.
Contact a relocation agent to advice you in all the documents you should bring from home.
