Paraguay Residency

A Paraguay residency is the most easily accessible residence on the global market today. Obtaining temporary or permanent residence in Paraguay can subsequently lead to citizenship in Paraguay. As a Paraguayan resident, my team of Paraguayan lawyers and I can help you obtain Paraguay residency in a simple and quick way (a one-time 2-3 day visit to Asuncion). We will take care of everything for you.

Before you start reading this article I suggest to read what benefits it provides you.

Why Paraguay residency

Territorial taxation
No minimum stay
Easy access to citizenship
Crypto friendly
Bank anonymity
Plan B
Territorial taxation

Foreign income is not taxed at all, and local income is taxed at a flat rate of 10%.

No minimum stay

No minimum number of days must be spent annually to maintain residency. In case of temporary residency you must enter territory for 1 day each year. In case of permanent residency you have to enter territory for 1 day every 3 years.

Easy access to citizenship

A permanent resident may apply for a paraguayan passport after 3 years.

Crypto & capital friendly

Paraguay doesn’t tax your crypto gains or capital gains wealth (for companies outside Paraguay).

Bank anonymity

One of the last remaining sovereign nations is Paraguay. Paraguay never signed CRS (common reporting standard), their banking is opaque.

Plan B

It is always good to have a plan B in place. Have a second home and have a diversified set-up.
