Visa Requirements for Citizens of Paraguay
Visa requirements for citizens of Paraguay are administrative entry restrictions placed on Paraguayan nationals by the authorities of other countries and territories around the world.
As of 2021, the Henley Passport Index ranks the Parayuan passport 34th among the passports of the world in terms of travel freedom, tied with that of Panama. This is because holders of a passport issued by Paraguay may gain visa-free entry or access with a visa on arrival to over 125 destinations worldwide.
There are currently around 80 countries for which Paraguayans are granted visa-exemption, for varying periods of stay depending on the destination. Travelers from Paraguay are granted visa-free access and freedom to live and work in any of the member states of the South American trade bloc (Mercosur) simply by presenting a valid national ID card.
Most other visa-exempt countries for travelers from Paraguay require them to present a valid Paraguayan passport to gain visa-free entry for a stay between 30 to 183 days depending on the destination. Visa exemption in these territories is usually granted for purposes of tourism, transit, or for business and trade activities
Up to 40 countries have implemented an Electronic Travel Visa Authorization for Paraguayans. These simple online application protocols allow visitors from Paraguay to obtain an eVisa or electronic travel authorization from the comfort of their own home. They permit short-term stays that vary from 30 days up to 3 months depending on the destination and remove the need to wait in long border queues for a visa on arrival.
Finally, an embassy visa for citizens of Paraguay is required to travel to over 100 countries, regardless of the motive for the visit or the intended duration of the stay.
