For Travelers

Paraguay is a small country with one main international airport: Aeropuerto Internacional Silvio Pettirossi. You will ideally fly into Paraguay on Thursday August 18th, 2022. 

If you are a citizen of Canada or of the United States you do not require a Tourist Visa. However if things change, we will let you know. You will need proof of vaccination for COVID-19 OR  a PCR test taken 48hrs before

Paraguay's currency is the Paraguayan Guarani. It is advisable to always have some cash on you since not all places accept credit card transactions. Most Canadian or American Banks do not offer pre-travel purchase of Guaranies, we recommend you do this upon arrival at an exchange shop, or send to yourself using Remitly (best exchange rate).

 

We recommend all travelers get roaming for their cellphones to have access to data services while in Paraguay. 

Should you require any assistance while in Paraguay please reach out to Jessica from StayPY which is the travel agency we are working with.
