Uruguayan passports are issued to Uruguayan citizens to travel outside Uruguay. For traveling in Mercosur countries, as well as Chile and Bolivia, Uruguayan citizens may use their ID card.[1]

The Uruguayan Ministry of the Interior started to issue the biometric passport to Uruguayan citizens since 16 October 2015. The new passport complies with the standards set forth by the Visa Waiver Program of the United States. Standard processing time is 20 business days, however 48-hour urgent processing is available for a higher fee.[1]

As of May 2018, Uruguayan citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 154 countries and territories, ranking the Uruguayan passport 23rd in terms of travel freedom (tied with Emirati passport) according to the Henley Passport Index.[2]
