What sort of Visa do I require?
A standard tourist visa will suffice in most cases. These are issued for 30/90 days. Most Europeans will not need a visa, US citizens do, and a complete list of the visa type issued for each nationality is to be found at this page: Visa requirements page.
NOTE: This list may be out of date for some. If unsure or you think the situation for your nationality may have changed, contact the Bolivian Embassy for your country to seek confirmation. In particular, US citizens now have to pay a visa fee. See the US consular affairs page for information if you are a US citizen.
If you DO NOT require a visa, you need take no further action, you will be automatically issued with a tourist entry stamp for 30/90 days on your entry into the country.
If you DO require a visa you need to contact a Bolivian Embassy and arrange a visit to obtain one. This can be done at any Bolivian embassy around the world (it does not have to be the one for your country.) Check the table in the Visa requirements page for an approximation of visa fees.
What if I want to stay longer than the 30/90 days that my visa allows?
If you want to stay for longer we will make some enquiries for you.
- You need to write to us stating your nationality and the amount of time you want to stay for.
- Simultaneously, you need to make some enquiries on your own account, such as finding your nearest Bolivian Embassy, and contacting them with your queries.
