    • Uruguay has several incentives which adjust to different types of activities, from industrial to commercial and service activities intended to be performed in the country. Schemes provided for by the Investment Law, free zones, free port and free airport schemes, public-private partnership agreements, industrial parks and temporary admission are some of the main incentive schemes available in the country.


    • There is no limitation for hiring foreign staff (except in the free zones, where it may not exceed 25% of the workforce, subject to exceptions). In turn, favorable policies towards foreign investment translate into incentives for foreign immigration and, as well as for the return of Uruguayan citizens who have resided abroad.
