cyprus needs a visa, greece does not
by: Anonymous

I called the Immigration Office (Migración) in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for you. Citizens of Cyprus do need a tourist visa, but you will be given the visa when you arrive at the airport in Bolivia. The cost is $135 and it allows you up to 30 days in Bolivia.

They told me that your wife, who is from Greece, does NOT need a tourist visa at all. The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also lists Greece as a country which does not require a visa here:

This is the information I was given today at 11:50 a.m. on Wednesday, 11 May 2011. The phone number for the Immigration Office in Santa Cruz, Bolivia is (591-3) 351-9574

visa complications
by: Anonymous

Unfortunately, this is a problem that many many many foreigners are running into. They get different information from different authorities.

In the case of tourist visas, each country individually has treaties with Bolivia about tourism so residents of some countries need a tourist visa to visit Bolivia, others don't.

In the case of people who are moving to Bolivia to request residency there is no distinction. In that case EVERYONE needs a visa and it's a different visa called a "visa de objeto determinado" (specific purpose visa).

Are you coming as a tourist or are you planning to request residency in Bolivia?

visa complicated
by: Anonymous

hello. again!
i called the embassy of bolivia in italy(closer to me) and they told me that i definetely need visa before i arrive in lapaz and that, if i do not have the visa before i live, maybe the airline company will not let me get in the aeroplane.....
so i called the embassy of bolivia in london, just to check, and they confirmed me that i dont need a visa, i only need a permit, that i will take it upon my arrival in lapaz....

so, 2 different ambassys of bolivia in rome and london, they say different things....

i find it very complicated and i dont know why, i have been to samy places and i never had an issue with the visas...

what do you think?

cyprus citizens get bolivian visa at airport
by: Anonymous

According to the Bolivian government website, citizens of Cyprus (Chipre, in Spanish) do need a visa to enter Bolivia, but don't need to get it prior to travel. This generally means you will be given your visa upon arrival at the airport. See this page:
