  1. Hi there! I’m looking to apply for a Uruguay working holiday visa to begin in March or April next year (2024).
    How far in advance should I organise the visa? Is it a long process?
    I have a uni degree and am currently learning Spanish.

  2. I would like to apply for a working holiday visa in Uruguay. I am an Australian resident aged 27, have a university degree and speak Spanish at an intermediate level. I can also meet all the requirements for the application.
    I would like to know if it is possible to apply online or overseas? As I’m currently outside Australia traveling through South America and not able to visit the Canberra embassy in person. Please advise.

    1. Hi Lucas, thanks for asking. Since you’re already in South America reach out to the nearest Embassy or Consulate to you as the Canberra Consulate condition may be waived. Based on how you go with the nearest Embassy or Consulate you may wish to contact the Camberra Consulate as they may provide further support due to your circumstances. Give them a call and let us know how you go!
