Registration

Soon

Paraguay

Visas are not required for most US, Canada, Europe.

My advice on phoning the embassy is that Australian and New Zealand citizens need a visa [1]which costs US$135 for Australians or US$140 New Zealanders. The embassy is in Canberra and processing takes 2-5 days plus mailing time. However Wikipedia indicates that you can get a visa on arrival at the Asuncion main airport [2] this may be true and the phone advice incomplete or Wikipedia may be out of date.
