Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Uruguay

With a traditional rural landscape alongside modern cities, in particular the capital, Montevideo, Uruguay is increasingly becoming a popular destination for foreign expats. The lower cost of living in comparison to other South American countries and friendly natives are just two of the many reasons that expats choose Uruguay. Many expats also relocate to Uruguay for the first-world infrastructure, the top-quality and affordable healthcare, and the beautiful beaches. The well-educated workforce means there are a number of skilled jobs available for expats in the country, while the strong economy, which avoided a recession, has been going from strength to strength.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Peru or Saudi Arabia, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
