As we have already informed in our previous article, on October 18th 2022 the Law of Immigration in Paraguay was modified and we wrote about it in detail.
Today we have another important news. As a matter of fact, all those who want to obtain residence do not have to pay $ 5000 deposit at the Central Bank of Paraguay.
Below is a short list of documents you have to bring to Paraguay to obtain residence and the Paraguayan biometric Identity Card, that allows you to travel without passport, to all countries of Latin America:
- Apostilled Birth Certificate
- Apostilled Criminal Record
- Civil Status Certificate: Marriage Certificate if you are married, Divorce Certificate if you are divorced, Separation Certificate if you are separated or Free State Certificate
We repeat another time that YOU NO LONGER NEED to prove your solvency by depositing $ 5000 at the Central Bank. All those who want to obtain residence just need to draw up a declaration and say they can have the founds for living in Paraguay.
As regards residence, we repeat that it will be issued initially for a period of 2 YEARS and the Paraguayan biometric Identity Card is immediately issued.
There are no changes compared to the previous law, before October 18th 2022. At the end of the second year of your permanence in Paraguay the residence will be renewed ON A PERMANENT BASIS.
With obtaining permanent residence, you become a full-fledged Paraguayan resident, but it is very important to point out that even during the two years of initial residence you can enjoy all the benefits reserved for permanent residents. As a matter of fact, you can live and work in Paraguay freely, you can travel to all the South American countries using your Paraguayan biometric Identity Card as a Passport, but above all you do not have to pay taxes on your income generated abroad and in this way you can became a “Digital Nomad” in Paraguay.
We repeat again that you do not need to have a Work Permit in addition to your residence in Paraguay if you have your Paraguayan biometric Identity Card.
As you can easily image, our clients are very happy to never have to deposit $ 5000 at the Paraguayan Central Bank and applications are significantly increased.
