Types of Paraguay Visas 

Currently everybody will be receiving a temporary residency visa.

Receiving the Paraguayan residency is a first step to applying for a Paraguayan passport, if you so desire. However, before beginning the naturalization process a period of three years must lapse.


Planning for Your Visit to Paraguay

Every person who applies for Residency and a Cedula must personally come to Asuncion. For that trip, please allocate at least 5 full working days to complete the initial processing. It could happen in 2-3 days, but ensure a full week to avoid dissapointment.
Once you have received your Paraguayan residency (Admisión Permanente), you can apply for the Paraguayan ID (Cédula), which again requires your presence in Paraguay for approximately 3 working days. Then, after a processing time of around one month, you will receive the Paraguayan ID which establishes your legal identity in Paraguay, allowing you most of the same rights as any Paraguayan, for example to start a business, buy property, travel into the country without a visa and to live in Paraguay as a resident for as long as you want.

How to Become becoming a Paraguay Tax Resident

Once your Cedula is issued, we can apply for your RUC (Tax ID). A certificate of fiscal residence can also be obtained.

How to Move from Temp to Permanent Residency

Foreigners need to acquire a Temporary Residency first, and then move to Permanent Residency after 2 years.
