Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Paraguay. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Paraguay has introduced entry restrictions. All arriving passengers must undertake mandatory isolation for two weeks. Airports remain open but commercial options are increasingly limited. Air New Zealand will suspend flights from Buenos Aires from 30 March. If you wish to return to Australia, we recommend you arrange to do so by commercial means immediately. If you choose to remain in Paraguay, follow the advice of local authorities. There's also an active outbreak of dengue in Paraguay with cases registered in Northern Argentina. We now advise: Do not travel to Paraguay.
