What is the Reconsideración de Residencia Definitiva (Reconsideration of Residencia Definitiva permit)?
When the Servicio Nacional de Migraciones (SERMIG) receives a Solicitud de Residencia Definitiva (an Application for Residencia Definitiva permit) from a foreigner, it may grant or reject the permit. For cases where the applied benefit has been rejected, the person will have the option of applying, only once, a reconsideration of the measure ordered, through the appeals established by law for such purposes, accompanying new information to support his claim.
This appeal for reconsideration must be submitted within three days of its notification, or the person may resort to any of the appeals contemplated in Law No. 19.880, with the effects that the legislation establishes for each of these.
Where can I apply for the reconsideration of my residence application?

If you do not comply with any of these requirements, the appeal will be considered inadmissible.
It is also noted that in the event that the appeal is filed by a third party, this person must certify sufficient power of attorney to support such claim, under the sanction of being understood as not filed. On the contrary, in case of compliance, it will be subject to the respective analysis.
