Tourists come to Bolivia for a variety of reasons, including the remote, forbidding beauty of the Andes Mountains, ancient Incan ruins, Lake Titicaca, and the capital of La Paz.
To visit Bolivia, American citizens need both a US passport and a Bolivian visa. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the time you enter the country, and you can get a visa either before you leave the US, at the airport when you arrive or at official land border crossings.
Bolivian visas cost $135, and you must pay in cash if you decide to apply for one on arrival.
Here’s what you’ll need to apply for a Bolivian tourist visa.
- One Bolivian visa application form
- A US passport, valid for at last 6 months after you plan to enter Bolivia.
- 1 passport-sized photo, 4 by 4 centimeters in size
- A hotel confirmation or letter of invitation from someone in Bolivia.
- Your round-trip plane ticket. If you aren’t flying in, include a statement saying when you plan to enter and leave Bolivia instead.
- A copy of a bank statement or credit card statement.
- An International Certificate of Vaccination for yellow fever.
