Description

Drive-through Argentinian Aduana. On the other side, there is the combined Argentinian and Paraguayan immigration. Also drive-through. Stopped at the Paraguayan aduana and walked a few steps to get our TIP. Very friendly people. They needed a passport and title. No copies of anything and no costs.
When asked how much cash you carry, answer that you carry for a total amount far below 10000USD.

Still as described before. Argentina to Paraguay. Argentinian aduana takes TIP before bridge, anything else’s done at the Paraguay side. Money changers offer terrible rates.

Trying to get insurance as a foreigner is next to impossible. You will need to contact the wonderfully delightful and helpful Mario. He is over the border in Argentina but arranged a SOAT for me remotely via WhatsApp. +54 9 3718 44-5303.

2hrs on the trafic to get to the immigration. Everything is done in the same little building. No need to get ouf of the car. The process is a bit chaotic
After immigration the aduana guys came to have an inspection of the van. They asked us in a passive agressive maners if we had cash and if yes, to declare the amont to them. I had read the previous comment so i knew they were looking for an extra salary :))) we lied and said no cash. They insiste several time and warn us that if they found something they would put the van for an inspection with x rayon. They ask my partner to follow one of them while another guy was searching the van. There they asked us again about cash. The inspection was just looking into the trash, clothes, behind the bed and opening the back door.
Finally ask us personal questions about the viaje and let us leave, waving at us and wishing us a good trip ??

after crossing the bridge, follow traffic to drive into lines that go by small shipping containers. exit Argentina is the first window. hand them the passports and vehicle title and registration. next window is enter Paraguay, with the same documents. drive through the defunct looking fumigation station and park on the right to get your tip. an agent came up to the car and took us inside to do the normal paperwork. we were asked how long we would stay, and we guessed only 2 weeks so they offered us 15 or 20 days for the tip. I don't know if we had told them more days how much more time we could have gotten. a cambio guy was here where I changed Argentinian pesos to the local currency. not a good exchange rate but you need 5000 for the toll to cross the bridge to go to Asuncion.

Very straightforward border crossing. Both aduanas at the same place just keep moving down to the next window. Paraguay just took our tip off us and Argentina needed our reg document, passport and insurance document to make a new tip. Then you have the van searched. Prepare for a lot of police checkpoints on the road down to Resistencia. They just asked where we were going and where we'd come from but they are very frequent.

Bad experience as Paraguayan customs intended a shakedown, citing "regulations" about cash import. Asked for a "Multa" of 200 USD. I got out of it by insisting to see the law or regulations they pretended to quote. They offered to "reduce" the fine to 100USD, and finally let me go as an act of "kindness and leniency", as their whole argument had broken down.
Received a tourist entry for two weeks only.

Long wait for cars. Cyclists can weasel to the front but be prepared for dirty looks.

Two hour wait for cars

Here is everything done if you enter Paraguay.
Migracion Salida Argentina/Entrada Paraguay is in one box in a drive thru. Aduana Paraguay is next - they keept our argentinian TIP and filled in the paraguan by hand. Everything easy. Nobody looked inside our camper.

The location here is wrong but it's not far from this point, someone will direct you. If you're leaving Paraguay, you will only return the TIP at the Paraguayan side and the rest you'll do in Argentina after you pass the bridge.

WARNING: DO NOT even bother going to the Argentinian side if you don't have the mandatory vehicle insurance. They will not let you pass or give you a TIP. Nobody sells this insurance (to foreigners) at the border so we (1) left the van parked by aduana in Paraguay, (2) got passport stamp leaving Paraguay and entering Argentina, (3) took taxi to Clorinda (nearest town) and purchased Argentinian vehicle insurance, and (4) returned to the border to cancel TIP from Paraguay and obtain a new TIP for Argentina. It was quite a process but the only way for us. We've added the insurance place we went to on iOverlander.

Very simple border crossing, everybody was very nice. Our rv was checked with a dog on the Argentinian side, but everything relaxed. Easy, nice, straight forward.

The strictest check in all our travel through Latin America. Argentinian aduana asked us to get out every single box from our car, and passed the car through truck scanner to check our rooftop tent.
