Tucked in between Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay was beckoning for us to not forget her. So we didn’t. We squeezed her in for a short, 5 day visit on our way to Buenos Aires.
Now the good news is, Australians do not need a visa to visit Uruguay! We crossed the border from Colon, Argentina into Paysandu and the whole process (without walking…see our post http://www.globalrunaways.com/runaway-to/how-totravel-between-paraguay-and-uruguay), took less than 10 minutes.
They asked where we intended to visit before issuing us a 90 day tourist visa. Couldn’t have been more straight forward.
Just a tip if you cross the border at the same location as we did, you will not receive a stamp out of Argentina. The border has a bi-national agreement so don’t stress because when we re-entered Argentina 5 days later, there were no problems at all.
