transit paraguay visa

what criteria meet transit paraguay visa.

I plan to travel from Iguassue to Lapaz with connecting flight at Asuncion and Santacruz Viru Viru. The airline change time ,so we have to fly from Iguassue earlier and will arrive Asuncion on 1:10 am and will depart from Asuncion to Santacruz at 12:00.So if we still in airport do we need to apply visa. Because the airline offer hotel near airport for us,but we have to apply visa which Paraguay embrassy are not available in our country.It's not convenient for us to apply Paraguay visa,so we decide to stay in airport.But in final if any condition are mandatory to have Paraguay visa ,we had better stay in hotel .

I'm a US citizen very interested in knowing the answer (or interpretation) to this question too.

I'm travelling from Iguacu to Cuidad del Este, and then taking a bus to Asuncion. I'm only staying in Asuncion long enough to fly to Santa Cruz, Bolivia (1 night).

Everything I've researched says Iguacu to Ciudad does not enforce Paraguayan visa requirements for anybody. However, I'm worried that flying out of Asuncion will require the airline authorities to check for a Paraguayan visa that I don't have.

Does anyone else have experience with short stop-over stays in Paraguay? Would you recommend getting a visa in advance or should I just try and deal with it at the airport if the authorities take exception?

Have traveled to Paraguay many times. I would not even dream of trying to leave the airport in Asuncion without an entry stamp on a Paraguayan visa. They are hard core about things like this. Going from Iguacu to Ciudad may not be a big deal as you say but Asuncion and the airport is a different matter. Save yourself a major pain in the neck and get the visa ahead of time.

I am flying from Santa Cruz Bolivia to São Paulo with a stop over in Asuncion, Paraguay. Transit is only for an hour and a half - I am a British citizen so do not need a visa but does anyone know if airport tax applies?

Airport tax is almost always included in your ticket. Look at the fare breakdown and you should see a line for it.

We plan to travel from Iguacu to Cuidad del Este by bus. Does anyone know if you can get a visa from customs on the way as you cross the border into Paraguay.

Hi, I am looking to get a flight out of Paraguay. I would literally be in the country for a couple of hours. I am from Australia and am told I need a visa. I am currently in Argentina and obviously can't visit the Australian consulate in Australia for this. We would be crossing in at Ciudad del Este and going straight to Guarani airport. If we need a visa can you get it at the border?

Anyone reading this in 2015 , you can obtain your visas from many Paraguayan consulates located throughout the border countries and major crossing points in Brazil and Argentina. Check out this link to find the location that suits you best http://www.embassypages.com/paraguay

Hello,

I am flying from Sao Paulo to Cusco via Paraguay and have a 4.5 hours stopover @ Aeroporto Silvio Pettirossi Assunção (PY). If I stay inside the airport, do I still need a Transit visa?
