Requirements for Paraguayans
Paraguayan citizens who are approved for the France ETIAS will be granted a stay of up to 90 days within a period of 180 days inside France and the rest of the Schengen Zone. The entire process will be completed online, eliminating the need for travelers to plan trips to their local embassies or consulates. A successful application will fulfill various requirements, including providing personal data to European authorities via the online portal. There are a number of requirements for applying for the ETIAS for France.
ETIAS France Personal Information
- The applicant’s first and last name
- Passport number
- Passport date of expiry
- Contact details
- Place of birth
In addition, applicants will be required to provide up to date and accurate information regarding their medical and security histories. These pieces of information will then be cross-referenced with the information that European authorities already hold to make sure there are no security threats or inconsistent points of data.
Although the application was designed to take only a few minutes to complete and to have a quick turnaround time, it is integral that all the information is entered correctly and double-checked before being submitted to avoid any delays or the outright rejection of the application.
Documents That I Need for France ETIAS
Unlike other applications, the ETIAS visa waiver for France does not require a laundry list of documents. The only requirement is that you have a valid Paraguayan passport. The passport must have a minimum of three months of validity from the date you apply for the ETIAS. Should you not hold a passport that meets this requirement then you will need to acquire a new passport before applying for the visa-waiver.
Medical Info for Paraguayans
There are no medical or vaccine requirements for visiting France for citizens from Paraguay. However, it is also advisable to double-check that this remains the case before traveling. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) website will always have the latest information regarding health warnings.
Travelers to France should also purchase medical insurance for the duration of their trip as their domestic provider will most likely not cover any treatment received in France or any other Schengen Zone country. If you do not have medical insurance and are injured you will be asked to pay for the treatment you need up front, and should you not have the necessary funds, you may be denied care. In other cases, you can fill out a “Feuille de Soins” or treatment form to request later reimbursement.
In the event that you require medical attention, you can dial 15 or 122 to speak with an operator.
