We still write about Paraguay. Why? For a very simple reason, that goes hand in hand with the last two years, unfortunately “Covid years”.
However also Covid cannot be separated and will never be able to suppress a fundamental human right: the individual freedom.
But freedom from what? It is easy: freedom to be vaccinated or not vaccinated.
Paraguay is a truly free country, because it does not force you to be vaccinated. Paraguay recommends vaccination, but compared to Italy, Europe, United States and Canada, there are no Green Pass or checks of any kinds, that partially or totally reduce the freedom of the people.
In Paraguay no one will ever stop you to go to cinema, theatre, bar, restaurant, and artistic cultural or sporting events of any kind.
No one will ever ask you to show your Green Pass to go to work or to use public transport.
And we are not just talking about Green Pass, but also about a PCR swab test Covid you must take every three days or an antigenic swab test you must take every 24 hours.
For Paraguayan Government the word “freedom” is not only a word but it is applied concretely in all situations and we saw it clearly during this Covid time.
Paraguay is a libertarian and liberal country. Paraguayan Government absolutely respects (and protects) all those who for various reasons cannot or do not want to be vaccinated.
As a matter of fact, there are people who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons and others who do not want to be vaccinated by personal choice. All people are treated in the same way. To all of them Paraguay offers absolute freedom and absolute respect.
In Paraguay no one will never ask you to do what other people decide, but Paraguayan Government respect your right to do what you want and believe. That is: absolute respect for your decision.
On the contrary, in Europe and in America if you do not want or cannot be vaccinated, you are absolutely “persecuted” by the authorities and lost almost completely your freedom.
Your life turns into a hell, because you are prevented from doing almost everything, unless you continue to do swab tests (and bearing the related costs…).
LIP has decided to take this problem seriously.
As a matter of fact, permanent residence in Paraguay and Paraguayan electronic Identity Card (please note that you can be used it to travel to all Latin America countries WITHOUT PASSPORT and not only to live and work in Paraguay) allow all people who cannot or do not want to be vaccinated to travel freely without a Green Pass.
Why? Simply for this reason: because airlines require vaccination and Green Pass to all those who fly to any country in the world, but with one exception: they DO NOT require vaccination and Green Pass to those who reside in a particular country.
For example: if I fly to America passing through Germany, I am obliged to show my Green Pass in Germany, because I do not reside in Germany, and I am obliged to comply with the entry rules of Germany.
But, if I have my Paraguayan Identity Card and I have my permanent residence in Paraguay I can fly to any country in the world to reach Paraguay, without having to be vaccinated, because in Paraguay there is no vaccination obligation.
Of course, I will have to do a PCR swab test to be able to check in and to board the plane, but at the departure gate I need only my permanent residence in Paraguay.
We LIP consultants believe that these information will be very useful and will be taken into consideration by all those who for different reasons are not vaccinated and they cannot or do not want to be vaccinated.
Permanent residence in Paraguay and Paraguayan electronic Identity Card at this point are no longer connected to tax benefits and many other benefits, that Paraguay offers to professionals and young entrepreneurs, but it is a way to be able to decide freely about vaccination and related Green Pass.
