Visa to Uruguay - HELP!

Postby lisatan » Sat Apr 16, 2011 9:31 pm

One of the requirements to apply for visa into Uruguay is to provide details about the accomodation details in Uurguay. Been asking Gap about the accomodation details and still no info. Have anyone travelled to Uruguay with Gap and know the accomodation they use in Uruguay?

If you travel on an Australian passport its visa stamped on entry.

For UK passport holders - see the UK Govt. website:

Seems UK passport holders do not need an advance visa.

For some nationalities (very few) Uruguay requires these hotel details for Visas. We are always able to send our passengers a list of the hotels we use in that area, and have been advised by our Operations Team that we sent out a list of hotels this past weekend.

If you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department here at : customerservice@gap.ca

Kind Regards,

Customer Service Team

Anytime a visa asks for hotel travelling to I usually write TBD, as this is actually the case for me. I've never had a problem. And Uruguay is a fantastic country, they shouldn't give you any grief.

If you're really concerned about it, Google hotels in Montevideo or Punta Del Este (whichever one you're starting in) and pick a hotel to put on your visa, countries NEVER check the hotel to see if you've checked in - it's really just a formality.

One very special word of advice... when you're in Uruguay - find a great food cart and order a Chivito - they are to die for! (and I'm a vegan)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOSTQwwRr_w
