On 11 November 2011, the Uruguayan Chamber of Senators approved the ratification of the Hague Convention of 1969 abolishing the requirement for legalization for foreign public documents (also called Apostille Convention).
The Convention introduces simplified proceedings to certify official documents written in one ratifying country and used for official purposes in another ratifying country.
On 14 October 2012, the Apostille Convention entered into force in Uruguay and this means above all a simplified procedure for immigration. Starting from that date in fact, all the documents that support visa and work authorization in Uruguay will no longer require a legalization process through the Consulates. Instead, official documents will only require the inclusion of an apostille certifying their authenticity.
Such simplification will facilitate not only the treatment of the immigration applications but also the circulation and exchange of documents.
