How to Enter Paraguay

Do I need a passport or visa to enter?

A passport and visa are required to enter Paraguay. U.S. citizens arriving by air may obtain a “Visa en Arribo” (visa upon arrival) at Silvio Pettirossi International Airport in Asuncion. The current fee for the Visa en Arribo is $160, payable in U.S. currency (credit cards not accepted). If not arriving at Silvio Pettirossi International Airport, prior to traveling to Paraguay, you must apply for a visa in person or by secure messenger at the Paraguayan Embassy in Washington, DC, or the nearest Paraguayan consulate, and you must pay a fee. If you are under the age of 18, you must provide a notarized authorization from your parent or guardian with your visa application. Visit the Embassy of Paraguay website for the most current visa information.

American Airlines has direct flights from Miami to Asuncion four times per week. For non-direct flights, common transit countries are Panama, Peru, Brazil, and Argentina. To leave Paraguay by airplane, you must pay an airport departure tax. Some airlines include the Paraguayan airport departure tax in the cost of the airline ticket. It is recommended that you check with the airline in order to determine whether or not the departure tax has been included.

Special Travel Circumstances in Paraguay

Paraguay’s customs authority may enforce strict regulations concerning temporary importation into or export from Paraguay of items such as firearms, medications, toys resembling weapons, or protected species. It is advisable to contact the Paraguayan Embassy in Washington, DC, or one of Paraguay's consulates in the United States for specific information regarding customs requirements.

Paraguay does not recognize dual nationality for its citizens. According to Article 150 of the Paraguayan Constitution, naturalized Paraguayans may lose their nationality if they have an unjustified absence from the Republic of more than three years (as determined by a court), or by voluntary adoption of another nationality.
