Business visitors who are not visa-exempt require a business visa issued by a Paraguayan consular post abroad. Business visas are generally granted with a 90-day authorized stay and allow multiple entries. Business visitors may extend their visas in Paraguay only once for a further 90 days. Visitor stays are limited to 180 days in any 12-month period.
Foreign nationals who intend to conduct work activities are required to apply for work authorization in Paraguay. There are three types of work/residence permits in Paraguay: Provisional, Temporary and Permanent Residence. Provisional Residence Permits are valid for up to six months and can be renewed once for an additional six months. Temporary Residence Permits are valid for one year; a new application with recently issued documents must be filed each year, for up to six years. As such, the Temporary Residence Permit is rarely recommended for long-term assignments. The Permanent Residence Permit is the preferred option for long-term assignments and allows the foreign national to remain in Paraguay indefinitely.
Foreign nationals who reside in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and India must provide an invitation letter from the Paraguayan entity in support of their business visa application.  Depending on their nationality, visa-exempt nationals benefit from a 30- or 90-day visa exemption.
