PYG – Paraguayan Guarani


PYG is considered to be a restricted currency, which implies an inherent limitation to the tradability of this currency. Fund transfers in this currency are not allowed outside of Paraguay.

Besides this limitation, this currency is considered to be complex (multiple information to be provided and complex processing). The beneficiaries might be contacted by the beneficiary/correspondent bank to release the funds.

Currency Guidelines

Besides the standard information, the full name (written out in full, without initials, abbreviations or acronyms) and the physical full address of the beneficiary are mandatory.

A clear reason / purpose of payment is mandatory and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.

Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789

Moreover, the beneficiary tax/ national ID number of the beneficiary’s bank is mandatory and to be provided in the remittance information.

This currency does not have any decimal places.
