New provisions on Yellow Fever Vaccine

Migration Department of Paraguay announced that from February 1, all passengers coming from or to the Brazilian states: Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Espiritu Santo will be required to present a yellow fever vaccination certificate at an immigration office both upon arrival and prior to departure from Paraguay. The vaccine should be administered at least 10 days before you arrive in the country.

The certificate is not required if your transit in the mentioned states is less than 24 hours.

If you are traveling from these Brazilian states, you are not allowed to enter Paraguay without the certificate, except for those who are lacking immunity, allergic to chicken eggs, over 60 years old, organ transplant patients, pregnant or lactating.

There is no penalty charge for not presenting the certificate. If a Paraguayan immigration officer demands a fine, you can send us a formal complaint via the contact form.
