Uruguay is just a quick ferry ride across the river from Buenos Aires, but as it is a separate country they have there own laws and immigration policy.  Citizens of most countries will not require a visa to enter Uruguay, just a valid passport, but there are some exceptions.

 Citizens of the countries in yellow can enter Uruguay with either a valid passport of national ID card.  Citizens of countries in blue can enter with just a valid passport.  Citizens of countries in grey require a visa that must be processed in advance of travel.

If you are traveling with a passport of a country in grey we recommend you visit the website of the Uruguayan embassy in your country to check the most recent visa policy.
