How to get asylum in Uruguay

In Uruguay, the recognition and protection of refugees are provided for in Law N° 18.076.

A brief overview of who the refugees are

People who are considered refugees are people who have been forced to leave their place of origin or permanent residence for:

  • Fear of retaliation due to one’s beliefs, race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or other identifiers,

  • Or due to the widespread violence, foreign aggression, internal disputes, enormous violation of human rights, or other situations that gravely disrupted public order and posed a danger to his life, security, or freedom.

When this occurs, individuals have the legal right to seek protection in another nation by filing for refugee status there.

  • The application procedure is free and confidential.

Kwụpụ 2:

Interview in person

The fourth step is the interview, but before that, the CORE Permanent Secretariat will provide:

  • A citation containing the interview’s specifics, including the date and time.

In the interview, a representative from the Permanent Secretariat of CORE will inquire about the reasons behind your decision to leave your home country.

NOTE: All details of the request are strictly secret. It must be kept secret, particularly from the government of the applicant’s own country.

Kwụpụ 5:

Resolution of Applications

After all these steps, the CORE evaluates the inquiry and decides on an action.

If your application is approved, the National Directorate of Migration will offer you a refugee certificate to take to the National Directorate of Civil Identification to get your foreigner ID card processed. Every three years, you’ll need to renew your ID.

Kwụpụ 6:

Getting refugee documentation

In the case of refugees, they are able to go through with:

  • Card of Civil Identification.
  • A refugee’s travel document.

What happens if the asylum request is rejected

If CORE turns down your request, you may appeal CORE’s decision through the subsidized appeals hierarchy. If you want to appeal, you’ll need a lawyer and send a letter to the CORE Permanent Secretariat.
