Uruguay is a forward thinking country in South America where one can become a resident. However, the timeline for permanent residency/citizenship can be 3-5 years. Typically investors will invest in home or farmland as land ownership rights are generous to foreigners in Uruguay. After you have the investment, you can apply for a cedula (South American travel document) is an acceptable travel document that is granted to people who have been gained official residency status. You actually will get a passport before citizenship in Uruguay, this is because Uruguay is a civil law jurisdiction, as opposed to common law. If you want this travel document, you need residency for 3 if you are married (to Uruguyan or not, doesn't matter) or 5 years (if you are unmarried).
