The Republic of Paraguay is a landlocked country in central South America and in geographically constrained by Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina and just as many other nations in the region they were conquered and colonised by the Spanish in the mid Sixteenth century. Ever since the nation hasn't been blessed with long stretches of stability.
Paraguay has Guarani as its official language but this is used alongside Spanish and it was the economic liberalism as a democratic nation and the shared language of its near neighbours that allowed its economy to grow markedly over recent years. eCommerce is currently growing quickly especially in major cities such as Asunción, with electronic payment being pushed as the best way to pay for goods securely.

When it actually comes to UK-Paraguay trade through the use of international parcel delivery services, our own Parcel Monkey service prices start from a very reasonable £32 for a parcel weighing 1kg on a three to five-day basis or twice that with DHL Air Express on a two to four full-day basis.
For a heavier item weighing up to 10kg, there is actually over a £100 saving by booking the Parcel Monkey Air Express service, compared to that of DHL, but only a one day delay. As the weight increases, you will see the cost rise. You should also be aware of the fact that the height, weight and depth of your parcel also contribute to the overall cost of sending your parcel.
Asunción the capital is where many of the parcels being shipped to Paraguay are destined for, but if shipping to a more remote region you can expect the parcel to take a little while longer to arrive.
It is crucial that you are fully aware and comply with not only our own prohibited items list (which we will make you aware of during the booking process), but also the Paraguay government's own restrictions. That list may include items such as wooden products made with timber from Liberia, watches, jewellery, magnetised products, furniture, fine art, and blank airline tickets - it is your responsibility to ensure that you do not try to import restricted items into Paraguay.
To familiarise yourself with the current rules we suggest you make contact with the Aduana and read their information about parcel delivery.
It may be that you live in the USA or in the countries surrounding Paraguay, so we can now help you save on sending parcels in the region on our new global shipping site, parcelmonkey.com
