Looking to attain Citizenship in Paraguay?

cedulabarackSo are alot of people! People seeking multiple flags are increasingly looking to Citizenship in Paraguay as a great alternative. We have a saying here, “en Paraguay, todo es posible” which roughly means that “In Paraguay, anything is possible”. this has many different meanings, but the most important is the general sense of optimism that the people of this beloved land possess. Yes it’s almost like America 50 years ago, where the sense of optimism, the youth, the hard working people and years of isolation have brought together a perfect storm of optimism to the future.

Citizenship in Paraguay takes a quick 4 years. You will start off by gaining your permanent residency in Paraguay which takes a few days with a great Paraguayan lawyer or fixer (we know them all) to put in the applications and get everything squared away. After your Paraguayan residency is complete you will need to start your “significant ties to the country” as evidenced in many ways. We have seen dozens of applications get kicked back for a variety of reasons and there are some pitfalls that you should definitely watch out for, especially by the part-time lawyers who are not actually present for your applications.

There are a number of nuisances to your application for Paraguay Citizenship that only time in the country here and boots on the ground efforts can provide. There is a ton of misinformation on Paraguayan Citizenship out there and free advice can be the most expensive advice you ever receive, trust me on that one from someone who has lived and traveled to over 40 countries and been through similar situations before, finding trustworthy reliable people in foreign countries is difficult, Paraguay is no exception.

Let’s be honest here, we use this website as a platform to share our love and adventures within Paraguay, but we also use it screen out lookie-loos and expat wanna be’s to help those of you who are truly interested in diversifying your life here in Paraguay. From Residency in Paraguay, Citizenship in Paraguay, real estate in Paraguay, investing in Paraguay, bank accounts in Paraguay and lifestyle choices in Paraguay, we are here to help. The bottom line is that your success is our success and the network we are creating today will change the face of Paraguay  in the years to come and eventually South America.

Yes we ask that you join our little membership that’s less than a USD$100 per year, to get first in line access to all sorts of professionals here throughout Paraguay that we have looked eye to eye, shook hands with and actually worked with on a variety of projects. They have all completed services for us and our friends with a smile and honesty. We don’t sugar coat things and just prefer to tell you like it is for your situation and let you make an informed and educated decision. We are in the information age and there is a TON of information out there, we help provide answers to your unique situation. We don’t bombard you with pitchy sales crap, I hate that and am sure you do too. Just cool, informative stuff that help you and guess what you’ll have direct access to our friends here anytime you need it.

So far we have only had one person ask for their money back and that was a “competitor” if you can call them that who just wanted to poach our well done research and use it on their “competing” rip off of a page, our response, “it’s flattered to be held in such high regard that someone has to poach our info for their site” ParaguayAtYourService is still the first and the premier destination for business people the world over to get their feet moving on the ground in Paraguay. We even offer you a Second Life Service that if you ever read Neill Strauss’ book Emergency you’ll have an idea of what we mean but you will actually have to take action and contact us to find out more details cuz we simply won’t put that on the internet.

Will you be our next friend here in Paraguay?

I sure hope so.

What the AARP says about Paraguay

Friday, February 8th, 2013

What does the AARP from the USA have to say about Paraguay?

Take a read about what Peter Greenberg has to say about Paraguay on the AARP site, a great introduction to Paraguay. Of course you can always learn more with our custom completed research on Paraguay.

Paraguay is a mysterious enclave of rural plains and muddy rivers, bordered by pristine jungles and dotted with lichen-stained towns and cities. Tucked away in the tropical belly of South America, landlocked and dwarfed by Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina, most travelers take its anonymity as a cue to skip it and continue on to more exotic places. If you do decide to go, you will be surprised to find a beautiful, humid, strikingly green countryside best explored by boat or on horseback.

Paraguay is a country that stands for paradox. The indigenous Guaraní people play sentimental European songs on giant harps. Huge Ciudad del Este shopping malls stand next to thundering, tropical waterfalls. Unpaved roads lead to a multibillion-dollar dam called Itaipú. Asunción’s squalor is punctuated by architectural jewels, while German Mennonite colonies scratch out a good living on the inhospitable Chaco. In the south, majestic Jesuit ruins in Encarnación hint at a lost utopia.

Paraguay’s history is brutal and sad. Everywhere you go you will find references to the 19th-century War of the Triple Alliance, a lonely, ill-advised conflict against the combined might of Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay that almost wiped out Paraguay’s male population. Paraguay’s isolation was compounded by a 20th century marked by military coups and long dictatorships. It is only recently that the country has opened up. Today, Paraguay is a destination for those who want the new and colorful and can tolerate the occasional discomfort. Its greatest assets are unexplored national parks with excellent wildlife, bird-watching, and unlimited potential for ecotourism.

Waterfalls & Jaguars

Paraguay has great potential regarding ecotourism. It has 11 national parks and 7 reserves offering diverse habitats. However, poor management and little infrastructure mean you really must make an effort to get there. Just be prepared to get your feet wet and your clothes dirty when you do so. For permits and information concerning all of Paraguay’s parks, go to Direccion de Parques Nacionales y Vida Silvestre, Franco and Ayolas, Asunción (tel. 021/445-970). Below are some of the best parks.

  • Parque Nacional Ybycui is 5,000 hectares (12,350 acres) of rare rainforest, steep woodland, and idyllic waterfalls. It is the country’s most accessible park and is famous for its partridges and multitudes of butterflies. It is only 120km (77 miles) south of Asunción and therefore can be crowded on weekends and holidays. On weekdays, its campsites and forest trails are deserted.
  • Parque Nacional Cerro Corrá was the site of Mariscal López’s last stand against his triple alliance enemies and is now a 22,000-hectare (54,340-acre) reserve of tropical forest and savannah grasslands. There are also caves, petroglyphs, and a small museum and information center. The town is 35km (22 miles) from the town of Pedro Juan Caballero, near the Brazilian border.
  • Parque Nacional Defensores del Chaco is a 780,000-hectare (1.9-million acre) enclave of spectacular bird life, including 1.8m (6-ft.) storks called jabirus. Jaguars and pumas can be found lurking in the dense thorn forest. The park is 830km (515 miles) from Asunción and accessible only by 4X4. Permits are necessary and obtained in Asunción. It is highly recommended that you go with a guide.
