The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has announced that Emirati citizens holders of diplomatic, special and ordinary UAE passports can travel to Paraguay without the need for a pre-entry visa.
The decision was issued as part of an agreement signed by Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, and Foreign Minister of Paraguay Luis Alberto Castiglioni, on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in New York, which stipulates the mutual exemption of visa requirements for UAE and Paraguayan citizens with a maximum stay of 90 days per visit.
Ahmed Sari Al Mazrouei, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said that the agreement reflects the strong relations between the UAE and Paraguay, which are based on understanding and mutual respect, to develop ties that mirror the aspirations of the leadership of the two countries.
He added that the initiative will open new opportunities for UAE citizens in the areas of tourism, investment and trade, among others.
The decision is effective as of August 16, 2019.
