We regret that we are unable to respond to U.S. visa inquiries.

All U.S. Government-published travel information about Paraguay is available on this website. Travelers frequently ask the Embassy for more specific guidance, including whether a particular place in Paraguay will be safe for U.S. citizens at a particular time. The Embassy does not provide this kind of tailored advice. You are encouraged to carefully consider the U.S. Government’s published travel information, and to conduct your own independent research, including speaking to those who will host you, before making a decision about your travel.

If the Embassy becomes aware of a specific, credible threat against U.S. citizens in Paraguay, it will send an announcement known as Emergency Message to American Citizens by e-mail. To receive these messages, please register with the Embassy online.

 VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective September 1, 2011, it will be mandatory to use the new appointment system to request U.S. citizen’s services at the Consulate, such as applications for passports, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, and legal services.
