Welcome to the Uruguay Residency Group!  To put it simply, we assist individuals and families in their efforts to relocate to Uruguay and obtain Uruguayan residency and citizenship.  We manage and oversee a team of local Uruguayan service providers to ensure that our clients’ applications are filed properly and that all follow up work with the Direccion Nacional de Migracion (DNM) is handled in a timely and cost-effective manner.
