A passport is required. U.S. citizens do not need a visa for stays up to three months. Minors (under 20) traveling alone, with one parent or with a third party must present written authorization from the absent parent(s) or legal guardian, specifically granting permission to travel alone, with one parent, or with a third party. This authorization must be notarized, authenticated by the Paraguayan Embassy or Consulate, and translated into Spanish. For current information concerning entry and customs requirements for Paraguay, travelers may contact the Paraguayan Embassy at 2400 Massachusetts Avenue N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008, tel. (202) 483-6960, or the Paraguayan Consulate in Los Angeles, Miami, or New York.

U.S. citizens traveling to and residing in Paraguay are advised to take common sense precautions and avoid large gatherings or any other event where large crowds have congregated to demonstrate or protest. When these events occur, additional advice may be obtained from the U.S. Embassy at the telephone number below.

Armed robberies, car thefts, and burglaries are on the rise. Street crime, including pickpocketing and mugging, is prevalent in the cities, particularly during the evening hours in the vicinity of hotels and airports. There have been incidents of pilferage from checked airline baggage. Travelers have found it prudent to put valuables in their carry-on luggage.

Because of concerns about crime in border areas, the U.S. Embassy in Asuncion requires its employees and their family members to provide advance notice and a travel itinerary when traveling to Ciudad del Este or Pedro Juan Caballero. The loss or theft abroad of a U.S. passport should be reported immediately to the local police and the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. U.S. citizens can refer to the Department of State’s pamphlet, A Safe Trip Abroad, for ways to promote a more trouble-free journey. This publication and others, such as Tips for Travelers to Central and South America, are available by mail from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402; via the Internet at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs; or via the Bureau of Consular Affairs home page at http://travel.state.gov.

Facilities for medical care are limited. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services. U.S. medical insurance is not always valid outside the United States. The Medicare/Medicaid program does not provide for payment of medical services outside the United States. In some cases, medical insurance with specific overseas and medical evacuation coverage has proved to be useful. Information on vaccinations and other health precautions may be obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s hotline for international travelers at 1-877-FYI-TRIP (1-877-394-8747); fax 1-888-CDC-FAXX (1-888-232-3299); or via their Internet site at http://www.cdc.gov.

Driving in Paraguay presents special hazards. Only minimal standards must be met to obtain a Paraguayan driver’s license, and few drivers receive driver education courses prior to licensing. Drivers throughout Paraguay routinely ignore traffic regulations. All visitors who drive in Paraguay should be prepared to drive defensively.

While some roads in Asuncion and other larger cities are paved with asphalt, most urban streets are paved with rough cobblestone. Two main roads leading from Asuncion are acceptably maintained. One leads east to Ciudad del Este and the Brazilian border; the other south to Encarnacion and Argentina. Elsewhere, roads are generally unpaved, and during rainy periods may be impassable. Driving at night is not advisable outside Asuncion, as animals or vehicles without proper lights are often on the roads. Road signs indicating hazards, such as sharp curves or major intersections, are lacking in many areas.
