Baby visa

by Elisabeth Mizner
(Santa Cruz. Bolivia)

I am from the USA and married to a Bolivian and live here in Bolivia and have a baby on the way. Would like my baby to be born in the states as all my family is there. Would my baby still be able to have a Bolivian citizenship? And what paper work would have to be done? Would I need to get the baby a visa in order to bring him back to the states? Also trying to figure out how to get a visa to the USA for my husband so that he can be with me when I have the baby. PS the baby is due in Sept.

no, sorry
by: Anonymous

What you may have heard is that when a FOREIGN woman has a baby in Bolivia, immigration extends her the right to apply for indefinite (permanent) residency without having to first go through the one-year or two-year residencies. They offer this because the baby, upon being born in Bolivia, will automatically be given Bolivian citizenship. However, she (the foreign mother) must still go through the entire application procedure for residency just like anyone else.

Men, on the other hand, are not offered this at all. And in your case, this is a moot point anyway because your girlfriend is already a Bolivian citizen and your baby also will be.

Anyhow, the point is that unfortunately, having a baby in Bolivia doesn't afford men any preferences or exceptions at immigration. Sorry.

Children Visiting Bolivia - One Parent is Bolivian and the Other is a US Citizen

by Jeff
(LOUISVILLE KY, USA)

Dear Bella, My wife is Bolivian and is a US permanent resident, I am a US citizen, we have one daughter (3months old) in common and want to know if she will need a visa to visit her grandparents in Santa Cruz. We will also be moving there in spring 2012 and I also want to know if our daughter will need to enter on a specific purpose visa? Does our daughter need to be registered with Bolivian consulate here in the US or can we do that when we are in Santa Cruz this fall, or does this even need to be done? When we move there will we need any of our documents legalized here in the US before arriving there? I know a little bit about the immigration process but you always get different information as it is always changing.
I have sent two request via this site to ask for more information about your EXPAT SERVICES but have gotten no reply..can you help? I would also like to meet with you when I am there and discuss these services that you offer.

Sincerely

Jeff

If your children is younger than 12 years they would not need a visa, i think after 12 they would. You can take their US birth certificate to a Bolivian consulate in the US and they will issue you a bolivian birth certificate which then you would then take to bolivia and have them entered into the system in Boliva. After you have done that then they will issue you another Bolivian birth cert.

I am not sure if immigrations in Bolivia will accept the consulate issued birth cert after 12 years of age....I would reccomend contacting the Bolivian consulate in Washington DC with any questions....

Bolivia visa for my 6 month old son?

Hello, i have a situation. Please help. Im going to bolivia with my wife and son.
Im a bolivian/usa citizen so i dont need visa to enter,
my wife is from philippines so she also dont need visa to enter.
however my 6 month old son is traveling with usa passport. he has dual citizenship usa and philippines since he was born in philippines. usa citizenship because i was able to transfer that to him.

we live in singapore and there is no bolivian consulate here. i checked other countries near by and i also cant find bolivian embassy around here. because of this, im not able to get a bolivian visa prior my arrival to bolivia.

i have the application for bolivian visa, photographs, invitation letter from my father (we will stay with him in La Paz), bank statement.

My questions are, will i be able to get visa on arrival for my son once i arrive in la paz bolivia?

Im finding blogs with different results. some say can, some say can not.

Also, here in singapore they dont give yellow fever vaccines to infants below 2 years old. i and my wife do have yellow fever vaccines but my 6 month old son doesnt. this will be fine with bolivian imigration right?

Please advice. our travel data is near and im worry this will be a problem.

we are leaving to bolivia on july 14.

Get tourist Visa at the airport
by: Rebeca

Hello, I´m an attorney at law with BoliviaBella.com.
If you don´t have a chance to use a Philippine passport for your son, then use his American passport and get a tourist visa for him at the Bolivian airport upon arrival. He will get only a tourist Visa, not for residence application.
Also about the yellow Vaccine, don´t worry, you don´t need it anymore, because it was recently deleted from the entry requirements to Bolivia.
Any questions please contact me: rebecagonzales@gmail.com

Visa
by: Tara

You should be able to get a tourist visa upon arrival to the airport in La Paz. I know that up until at least April of this year they were still granting tourist visas in the airport in Santa Cruz. I haven't heard that they have changed that. And it would stand to reason that La Paz would have the same service. Just make sure you have all of the necessary documents for the tourist visa. It sounds like you have most, if not all, of them already.

Your son should not need the yellow fever vaccine until he is older. Do not worry about that part. If you want to just be safe, you can get a statement from the doctor saying that infants are not vaccinated for yellow fever in Singapore. I don't think you will need it, but it might make you feel better just to have it to show the airline or whatever.

Happy travels!

use his philippines passport
by: Anonymous

If your son is dual Philippine and American, and Philippines do not need a visa, why doesn't your son travel on his Philippine passport?

Sole custody of minor child traveling to Bolivia

by Kim
(USA)

I have court awarded sole custody of my minor children and have documentation. My ex was awarded limited visitation at the time. The youngest, 15, chose 2 years ago not to continue to see his father becasue of safety concerns but we have not had this legally ameneded. My question is this, when applying for a Visa, do both his father and I have to sign, even though I have legal sole custody, including sole decision making rights, since the father has visitation rights only?

child custody
by: Erwin Suarez

i was an international student in the United States, I brought my ex Bolivian wife to be with me and my two years old son.

After couple years my marriage didn't work, so she decided to sent him back to Bolivia, I could not be without the present of my son so I decided to go back home to reunited with my son, meanwhile she stayed in the states.

Because of that I got the custody of my son. We got divorced and the re marry a Cuban guy to get the papers, so that is how she got the USA citizenship.

Now she doesn't want to help with the support of my son.

Is there any way to find out where she works and how much money she makes? I say that because she came back to Bolivia saying that she doesn't work when she travels back and forward all the time and also that she lives of charity.

If you can help please e-mail me at erwin_suarez@hotmail.com
