Is it possible to convert the tourist visa to special purpose visa while a person already in Bolivia? What about a person have already obtained tourist visa from Bolivian Consular and then he changes his mind to obtain special purpose visa at airport on arrival again???? Pls can anybody write in details on this issue....

Changing from tourist visa to specific purpose visa
by: Tara

From my experience, you CANNOT change from a tourist visa to a specific purpose visa while in Bolivia. When I lived in Bolivia, the volunteers in our organization always had to travel to a Bolivian consulate in either Brazil, Argentina, or Peru to apply for the specific purpose visa. We found it to be much cheaper to obtain the visa from the Bolivian consulate in your home country BEFORE going to Bolivia. But if you are already in Bolivia, it would most likely be cheaper to obtain the visa from Peru, Argentina, or Brazil than to pay a plane ticket to get the visa in your home country. Hope this helps.
