Paraguayan passports are issued to Paraguayan citizens to travel outside Paraguay. For traveling in Mercosur countries, Paraguayan citizens can use just their ID card (Cédula de Identidad).

The Paraguayan passport is valid for travel to any part of the world, although travel to certain countries requires a visa. The Paraguayan passport meets the recommended standards (size, composition, layout, technology) of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) established by Exhibit 9303.2 3 4 5 6

There are three types of passports, although the Paraguayan government issued biometric passports as standard since April 1, 2010.

The Paraguayan consular passport can be issued for Paraguayan citizens if they live abroad. The consular passports are printed at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Asuncion and delivered through embassies and consulates. Consular Passports are valid for a period of five years and are not renewable.
