What Regulations Are There on Importing Printers and Ink to Paraguay?

  • Paraguay is largely open to imports, but some products face restrictions, such as firearms. Paraguay prohibits the import of used cars over ten years old and used clothing. In addition, seasonal restrictions on some vegetables (e.g., tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions) are sometimes implemented to protect all producers.
  • Paraguay requires non-automatic import licenses on personal hygiene products, cosmetics, perfumes and toiletries, textiles and clothing, insecticides, agrochemicals, poultry, barbed wire, wire rods, and steel and iron bars.

  • Mercosur’s Common External Tariff (CET) averages 11.5 percent and ranges from zero to 35 percent ad valorem, with a limited number of country-specific exceptions. Paraguay’s average bound tariff rate in the WTO is significantly higher at 33.5 percent.
  • An application for grant of license for hazardous chemicals shall be accompanied by an EIA of the project or industrial activity involving generation, collection, consignment, transport, treatment, disposal, storage, handling or import of a hazardous substance in respect of which the license is sought.
