Paraguay Visa In Posadas, Argentina

by alohagunnar

The Paraguay Consulate in Posadas, Argentina is located in a small, orange, old colonial house a couple of blocks from the town center at 179 San Lorenzo Street(the street numbers were changed but the locals still prefer the old numbers - the new number is on the 1500 block) between Santa Fe and Sarmiento streets. There is no sign on the building just a Paraguay flag(red, white, and blue broad stripes) hanging in front with the old street address number 179. I entered the air-conditioned consulate on a Monday morning and there were just a few people inside and I didn´t wait more than a minute, not like the chaos at the consulate in Buenos Aires. The man sitting at the desk immediately upon entering will tell you(I am an American citizen) in Spanish to get 3 photocopies for each of the following:
1. Passport Info Page
2. Argentina Entry Stamp(in Passport)
3. A credit card(only front side)
4. Roundtrip Transport(he asked me for it at first but didn´t require it later- it appears you can´t just buy a bus ticket to Encanacion from Posadas - in the unlikely event they do require proof of onward travel you could book a tour to the Jesuit Ruins just 30k inside Paraguay from one of numerous travel agents in Posadas)

In addition to the above you need to give them 3 passport photos which you can get along with the photocopies at a shop right next door for US$4.

A single entry visa cost US$45 and a multiple entry visa costs US$65 in cash only(they provide change).
Due to recent counterfeit supernotes the consulate and the moneychangers in Paraguay will not accept US$100 bills(Benjamin Franklin) that have serial numbers beggining with "CB" or "D" so I went to the money exchange about 5 blocks south where the pedestrian streets cross at the town center and got 5 US$20 bills.

You then fill out a simple one page personal info form(if you make a mistake and cross anything out like I did you will have to fill out a new form)
After about an hour he will ask for your right thumb print on three pages which you will also sign.

Eventhough there was a Yellow fever outbreak in Paraguay there was no requirements or even notification. I got a free yellow fever shot at the hospital two blocks from the bus station in Encarnación, after I crossed the river into Paraguay.

So I started the whole visa process at 10am and was done by noon and caught the frequent(every 10 minutes) and crowded local bus(clearly marked ¨Argentina - Paraguay¨ in front) for 3 Argentine pesos just a couple blocks south of the town center to Encarnacion, Paraguay. Leafy streets and a nice river front walk.

i had plans to get a paraguyan visa in posadas (argentina) but my plans then changed and i headed south. i'm quite sure that paraguyan consulates also exist in puerto igauzu and definitely in buenos aires. i'm not sure about brazilian towns, but it would make sense for there to be one in foz.
