About Landscape

Paraguay Security

Terrorist groups are active in Paraguay, mainly in San Pedro and south Concepcion.  The Paraguayan People Party (EPP) continues to attract support in the region.  Attacks against local authorities, military personnel, or associated infrastructure are the primary targets; however, foreign travelers and expatriates should remain cautious to the risk from kidnapping and extortion attempts.

Low-level crime, including pickpocketing and muggings, are common in major cities, including Asuncion. Criminal gangs may use armed violence if victims refuse demands. The threat from criminals on motorbikes or scooters is increasing, foreign visitors and expatriates are likely targets. Females are potentially more vulnerable to this style of attack; however, all travelers should be aware of the risk. Foreign travelers should also be mindful of the increasing threat from virtual kidnapping; criminals will ‘follow’ your movements via social media and take advantage when the opportunity is presented.  Please read our article on Social Media Safety Tips When Traveling  

Foreign visitors traveling through remote locations can expect road surfaces to be mainly dirt tracks and cobbles, with poor markings and few road signs.  Major cities are paved, however, suffer from flooding and heavy congestion.  Road traffic laws are not enforced, which can result in much travel disruption within the region.  Criminal gangs may take advantage of vehicles held in traffic for smash and grab opportunities.

Public transport is unsafe.  Poorly maintained vehicles, road traffic collisions (RTCs) and crime dominated regions can increase the risk to your personal safety.
