Jeronimo Finestra (FINESTRA Law Company) :
Thank for enquiring about Paraguay.
To apply for permanent residency, you will need:
A Visa to enter Paraguay (some nationalities don't require a Visa)
Your birth certificate
Marriage / divorce / widow / widower certificate (if you have that status)
Police report records from your country or the country you been living in for the last 5 years
An FBI report (in the case of US Citizens).
These documents have to be issued in the country of origin, legalized at the Foreign Ministry of that country and then legalized at the Paraguayan embassy or consulate in that country.
Once you arrive in Paraguay, these legalized documents are once more legalized by the Ministry of Foreign affairs. Also your Visa is rechecked (a procedure that takes 24 hours).
Further steps to take in Paraguay:
Open a bank account and deposit US $5,000.
It's always a good idea to bring a simple bank reference from your local bank and any credit card or other bank documents, etc.
Further documents to be obtained in Paraguay:
Medical certificate issued by a certified doctor in Paraguay saying that you are in good health and do not have any contagious diseases (you need to do some blood tests).
A sworn declaration (affidavit) given before a Public Notary in Paraguay saying that you will obey all Paraguayan laws.
An Interpol Certificate issued here (in addition to the one you might bring as a US citizen).
A "Life and Residency Certificate" which is issued by the local police.
A "Police Certificate for Foreigners", issued by the Police Department.
Once we have all papers ready, we file them at the Migration Office. If they don’t find any problems with the papers (so far none of our clients have had any problems), they will grant residency after a minimum 3 month period.
Then you apply for a "Cédula de Identidad", which can be obtained in 2 weeks to 1 month.
For the permanent residency application process you should be here for a period of 4-5 working days to get all papers together.
First make sure that all the documents issued in your country are legalized by the Paraguayan consulate there.
After you get residency you apply for a “cédula”, which is the National ID card. We file almost the same documents used for your permanent residency card. Plus, you will need a Residency Certificate, Foreigners Carnet from the Police office, and a legalization of your Interpol report from the Police Headquarters.
So there are two trips: one for residency 4-5 working days and a second trip for your “cedula” ID card of 3-4 working days. You can collect your residency card on your second trip and immediately apply for your ID card.
3 years after being granted permanent residency you can apply for citizenship.
Our fees depend on the individual circumstances. They cover taking you to all the offices, the doctor, the photographer, the laboratory for blood tests, etc.
On average there are 23 different steps required. Also we do the follow-up until your residency is granted.
50% of our fee is paid after we file the request at the Migration Office, i.e. at the end of the application process; the pending 50% is paid after we file the "cédula" (ID card) request.
For the "cédula", we accompany you again and also do the follow-up in order to get it issued.
The Official fees / expenses are additional to our fee and amount to around US$ 580. (Plan on a reserve of $100). These are rough figures and can change a little since they are charged in local currency.
US$ 260 Migration Office Fees
US$ 100 for Birth Certificate, Police Report (FBI), legalization at Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Translation of Documents: US$ 40 or depending on how many documents
Life and Residency Certificate US$ 10
Doctor fees: US$ 30
Lab tests US$ 40-60
Report from the National Police US$ 10
Sworn Declaration US$ 20
Visa Verification US$ 20
Authentication of copies US$ 20
If you are married / divorced / widower, prices will increase a little because of the certificate that has to be legalized and translated too.
I hope that the information supplied will be useful, and I remain at your disposal for any further queries.

Alice Neufeld Eitzen (Alice Neufeld & Asociados):
Thank you for your email and your interest in our company.
Once you have decided to use our service, the next steps are required, starting with your application for the Paraguayan Residency and Cedula (your Identity Card).
For this you need to obtain following documents in original:
· Birth Certificate
· Marriage Certificate (if you have)
· Criminal background check (this certificate is only valid for 3 months!)
· Tourist VISA for Paraguay
All these documents first need an Apostille by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where the documents were issued and finally the legalization by a Paraguayan embassy which in your case is located in Lebanon.
Once you have those documents, it saves time and trouble if you scan then and email them to us to check. After we have reviewed them and given you our opinion that they are in good order, it will help expedite things on this end if you send them via courier to us along with 4 (four) photo IDs 3x4 two weeks prior to your arrival in Paraguay.
You will need to bring US$ 5,000 in order to open a bank account in Paraguay, a prerequisite for receiving the Paraguayan Residency. You can close the bank account and withdraw your money in full if you wish as soon as you have received your Paraguayan residency, please allow approximately 6 month waiting time, this requirement is necessary for person that has reached 18 years of age. In case you are married, the amount is only US$ 5000, but you will also have to present your marriage certificate in that case.
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.
In Paraguay (we will work side by side with you to assure all of your local arrangements are completed during your stay, managing translations, arranging for a basic medical exam, visiting government offices to submit your residency registration etc.) Provided all of your paperwork is complete and in order before you arrive, then everything will be taken care of by us and is already included in your package!
We only ask you to coordinate your visit with us so we can prepare for your visit.
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 2 working day. 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.
- The price does not include VISA tramitation which is another process with a Paraguayan Embassy or consulate, in case of irregularities please contact us.
- There is NO minimum time required to stay in Paraguay - neither to obtain nor to maintain Paraguayan residency!
- Paraguayan residency is valid life-long - only the Paraguayan ID is to be renewed every 10 years again: without any requirements of a minimum stay in the country!
The price for the package (PY residency + Cedula) at the time of this writing is US$ 5,000 for adults and 2500 US$ for minors under 14 years of age.
This package includes:
Hotel selection following instructions from the client
Certified translation of official documents to Spanish
Airport Transfer to the hotel and from the hotel to the airport
Transport for Government offices and other offices to obtain the documents.
Proper documentation processing
Documents Legalization by the Foreign Affairs Ministry

Receiving the Paraguayan residency is a first step to applying for a Paraguayan passport, if you so desire. However, before beginning that process a period of three years must lapse.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
We look forward to hear from you soon.
With best regards,
