The government of Paraguay reopened land borders on Oct. 15 and air borders on Oct. 21.

Key Points:

  • All citizens and residents of Paraguay and foreign nationals who enter via air or land must quarantine for 14 days after arrival. The quarantine can be reduced to seven days if the person can show negative PCR test results taken within 72 hours before entering the country and has a second negative test result on the seventh day of quarantine.
  • Individuals who make an air or land entry and stay less than seven days do not need to quarantine, however, they must show negative COVID-19 test results taken within 72 hours before entering the country. They must provide proof that their duration of stay in the country will be less than seven days.
  • Additional requirements apply to individuals who enter Paraguay through air travel.
    • Travelers must fill out a health card 24 hours before their trip.
    • Travelers must present negative PCR tests at the airline counter in order to qualify for a seven day quarantine.
    • Foreign nationals must have medical insurance that covers COVID-19 outpatient care, hospitalization and ICU care.

Background: Paraguay’s borders are still closed and only citizens, permanent residents and authorized foreign nationals may make entry at this time. New protocols are expected to take place when the borders open.
