A passport and visa are required to enter Paraguay. You must apply for a visa in person or by secure messenger at the Paraguayan Embassy in Washington, DC, or at 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 Paraguay Consulate website for the most current visa information.
There are no direct flights between the United States and Paraguay. Common transit countries are Peru, Brazil, and Argentina. The U.S. Embassy strongly recommends getting a visa for the country which you will be transiting en route to Paraguay. Many visitors have been turned around at the transit airport due to a lack of a visa. 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. We recommend that you check with the airline in order to determine whether or not the departure tax has been included.
