Citizens of most countries require valid visa to enter Bolivia. The Bolivian Consulate General determines the duration of stay upon receiving an application. The types and categories differ according to the purpose of visit, length of stay and bilateral arrangement with the country of the foreign national.
Business: The Bolivian business visa is designed to allow business travelers to come to Bolivia in order to pursue business activities, such as attending meetings and conferences. However, it excludes holders from seeking employment in Bolivia.
Tourist: The tourist visa (also known as the ‘visitor visa’ or ‘visit visa’) allows the holder entry to Bolivia, but strictly forbids them from engaging in any work while they are in Bolivia. Bolivia tourist visa holders are also not allowed to extend their stay beyond the limits of the visa.
