The simple fact of the matter is that so many people are looking for information all over the Internet on how to get started. A few people know, but they aren't very helpful. Well, I'm not one of those people. I will give you all the required steps, along with my own experience in having completed the process myself. Included are all the documents you will need, where to send them, how much it will cost, and various other tidbits to help.

With this course now being offered exclusively on Udemy, and the only one tackling the issue of residency in Paraguay, you now have all the information you need to get started. I show you how to get your FBI background report (the essential first step in the whole process), what to tell the FBI in your request, the process of getting an apostille on all your required documents, as well as what money NOT to bring to Paraguay.

I have created what I believe to be a thorough course in helping you to get started. Anyone who has long been looking into Paraguay residency, I am pleased to tell you that your search is now over. You will not find more comprehensive information in one spot anywhere else on the Internet. You can complete the entire course within an hour. But actually doing the steps as I've shown will take you at least 4 months from start to finish. The sooner you get started, the sooner you will become a permanent resident.

I am here to help you. I will answer all your questions with promptness. Stop dreaming and begin taking action.

Who is the target audience?
  • You should take this course if you have been trying to find factual information about becoming resident in Paraguay.
  • You should take this course if you want to eventually become eligible for Paraguayan citizenship.

I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and lived there most of my life. I currently reside in Beijing and have lived in China for almost 4 years. As a new phase of my life, I will be moving to Latin America in August 2015. I enjoy movies, reading, and computers. I have circumnavigated the globe. I have been south of the equator twice. I once navigated a 19,000 ton US Navy ship through the Atlantic ocean. I have been to the top of the CN Tower in Toronto Canada. I have lots of experience in teaching English overseas. I enjoy helping people learn new skills.
