Travel Advice

Visa-free short stays

Depending on the country you are traveling from, you will need a visa or not. It's best to contact your local Bolivian embassy or consulate to confirm the latest regulations.
The length of stay permitted upon entry is 30 days. Tourists who want to stay longer than 30 days can apply to extend their visa for another 30 days at a Department of Immigration office, prior to the end of the first 30-day period. This extension can be obtained twice to a maximum of 90 days during one calendar year.

Make sure you get an entry stamp when you arrive in Bolivia, otherwise you’ll have to pay a fine to leave. You should also make sure to get an exit stamp, especially when you are crossing a land border.

Entry and exit conditions can change at short notice. Contact the nearest embassy or consulate for details about visas, currency, customs and other travel requirements.
In August 2021, Bolivia approved Supreme Decree 4576 which gives foreigners who entered Bolivia irregularly or have overstayed their visa due to COVID-19, the opportunity to regularise their migration status without paying a fine. 

If you're not vaccinated, you must show a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test taken within 72 hours of travel or a negative COVID-19 nasal antigen test taken within 48 hours of travel.
You’ll also need to fill in an online health declaration and show it to officials upon entry.
Children under 5 do not need to present a negative COVID-19 test to enter Bolivia.
Visitors may be asked to show proof of onward travel on entry to Bolivia (a plane or bus ticket).
