So has anyone figured out definitively whether the 5,000 USD balance is required for the entire duration of the waiting process? (from application until issuance of permanent residence card?).
I am wondering if I can deposit 5,000 USD at the time of application, but use some of the money for living expenses in Paraguay during the 4-6 months waiting period.
If anyone can confirm or deny the rumors on this board with an official source (or personale experience), please let me know via this thread or a private message.
