Hi, I am new to the forum and soon to be new to Paraguay. I am sure many of us would be interested to know how your residency process has gone and the cost. I am a person who seldom felt I received the value for the cost, that attorneys/ facilitators ask to do very basic, simple processes , such as residency or immigration. I want to build a strong data base from people like myself who are willing to spend 20 or 30 hours to save $4000. Having navigated the Uruguayan system for $300 while recommended attorneys charge $3000 I have some basis to speak from. I would like to hear all we can about navigating the bureaucratic food chain with the attorney/ facilitator link eliminated or kept at an appropriate level. That means hundreds of dollars not thousands! Does anyone have experience obtaining there own residency to share? Let';s here form you bloggers! Ill be there in November.
I just (22 Dec11) completed the application process for Paraguay by myself, without any assistance. It's not difficult, just very pedantic. As a result of my experiences I have started a small business helping people, who don't want to pay the $000s for a lawyer, through the process, so everything is done quickly and painlessly. I have a brochure which lists my services and all the costs associated with an application. PM me and I will send it to you. No hard sell or follow up persterings.
purpose is not to cross post, but gathering information towards my expat project.
Legal issues towards staying in PY for an entended period of time, obtaining legal papers, and gathering an overall picture on the paperwork involved - http://www.expat-blog.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=48413 .
If thats possible, would like to exchange how one is able to extend is stay a bit longer.
http://www.paraguay-investing.com is a wierd page in Japanese.
http://aliceneufeld.com/ and http://alice-neufeld.com/ look either abandoned in the beginning of building which doesn't inspire confidence in their professionalism.
I tried Jeronimo Finestra of finestragroup.com (this site is down now) but he didn't bother to skype me at previously scheduled time, nor send me any email, nor returned my call after so I gave up...
Could anyone recommend a decent immigration lawyer - 1) speaking English, 2) knowledgeable enough to handle a bit non-standard cases, 3) good in communications and, particularly, not afraid of Skype and checking his/her email at least twice a day?
I am IT Professional from Pakistan living and working in Malaysia for 4 years. I am interested in having a PR for Paraguay. Can you please send me any info or brochure to help me get started with. Bundle of Thanks.
I am a few years late on replying to this post, but let me do it nonetheless. First of all, hiring a lawyer is not necessary to obtain Permanent Residency. I am a registered service provider with Migrations and I am not a lawyer, just a sworn translator. Second of all, not all of us are scammers, for what it's told below in this post. There are many of us who are honest, sincere, reputable and with 100% success rate, at least that's my case. I have got the best references not only for PR, but for many other services I provide, all for expats. In the case of citizens of middle east and that region, let me tell you that I am unable to help obtaining a visa (very difficult deed), and I even ask you to be wary of people who promise a visa and ask for money upfront, they most likely are trying to scam you. If any of you need more information on requesting Permanent Residency, you can send me an email to [email protected]
Paraguay is not for everyone. Expats who move to Paraguay are drawn to the low cost of living, low taxes and stable economy. But, expats living in Paraguay warn newcomers about rampant corruption; hazardous conditions for drivers and pedestrians; and lack of modern amenities.

Expats talk about some of the biggest challenges they've faced living in Latin America. Whether you're moving to Panama City or Punta del Este, this article is a must read to help you prepare (hint: you'll be much happier if you learn the language) and adjust your expectations (realities: the roads are rough, the pace of life is slower and bureaucracy is unavoidable). Despite all of the challenges, the list of what expats like about life in Latin America far exceeds the challenges.
