Immigration Scam Uncovered

The residency process in Paraguay is quite transparent and clear as to the time and requirements that it takes to obtain permanent residency. The timeframe from submission of documents is a minimum of 90 days and frequently a few weeks more. I have heard of a few unlucky cases as well where it has taken a few more months. I feel one of the most effective means of avoiding unnecessary delay is to grant your lawyer a limited power of attorney (limited to the residency process) which allows him to check the progress of the documents on a regular basis.


Paraguay remains one of the quickest places to gain residence legally and with the fewest requirements.


It has been reported in the ABC newspaper last week of some cases where a foreigner has entered the country and received residency in 5 days. this is clearly illegal.




There have been changes put into place at Migraciones to limit access to the computer system that tracks the residency process of individual applicants. An investigation has also been initiated by Migraciones into these activities.
