Canadian passport holders will be granted a visa-on-arrival (VOA) to enter the Republic of Paraguay. The visas will only be issued on arrival at the Silvio Pettirossi International Airport in Asuncion, and will require a valid Canadian passport and payment of US$150 in cash. The VOA will be valid for multiple entries within a period of ninety days, from the date of the first entry.
