Required Documents to Apply
Bolivia is one of just two landlocked countries in South America. Tourists who visit can enjoy a wide variety of climates since the nation has many stark changes in altitude. One of the most popular attractions is Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake, located at nearly four kilometers above sea-level. Additionally, Bolivia is one of the most remote places in South America. Aside from the Paraguay River which reaches the Atlantic, there are no navigable waterways to the ocean. Nevertheless, the ethnicities and geographic diversity make Bolivia a stellar destination for your next trip.
As far as the visa is concerned, there are multiple categories of visitors. First, we have the visa-exempt countries whose citizens can enter Bolivia only just an ID card or passport. In this category, we have all South America citizens except for Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana.
Secondly, there are the 51 visa-exempt countries whose citizens can travel to Bolivia with a passport only. Visitors in both above categories can stay in Bolivia for up to 90 days. Initially, you are allowed to stay for 30 days, but you can get an extension free of charge. Travelers in this second group must either obtain a visa on arrival or go to a Bolivian diplomatic mission/embassy before departure. In this group, we have the United States, China (including Hong Kong and Macau,) Iran, and Taiwan. Getting a visa before departure is free of charge, although the visa on arrival comes with a fee.
The third group contains 20 countries whose citizens must obtain a special authorization before the visa is granted.
To find out in which group you fit in, you must take a quick look at the visa policy of Bolivia. We at iVisa make things easy for you. We developed the Visa Checker Tool located in the top right corner of this page. It is a brilliant tool that will let you know in seconds what type of Bolivia visa or exemption citizens of your country are granted. Moreover, if you are required to obtain one, we provide a list of the nearest embassies.
Unfortunately, iVisa does not process visa applications for Bolivia. But we still want to help you as much as possible - you can contact our free support service 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about Bolivia visas or visa exemptions.
As for the specific requirements, it is best if you contact the embassy for further information since they provide the most up-to-date info. We can tell you that you need a passport with blank pages and holds validity for at least 6 months after your intended date of arrival in Bolivia. Other than that, you should find out more from the Bolivian embassy in your country.
We regret that we cannot help you more with your Bolivia visa, but we hope that the above information above helps.
