BoliviaBella Expat Services currently offers services for expatriates in Santa Cruz and Cochabamba, and we are in talks to expand into other cities. Our companies, names and logo (above) are legally registered. I'm your webmaster. I fell in love with Bolivia 34 years ago. For the past five years I’ve been building the most comprehensive English website about Bolivia you’ll find anywhere in the world. No other website comes close to providing the amount of detail you’ll find here. Before you move here read about Bolivia visa requirements.

I want you to enjoy Bolivia from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, (or choose to stay forever). It's what motivated me to launch a series of all offline, real life, customized services just for you and your expat family, specially designed to make your initial arrival and transition go as smoothly as possible.

Moving to Bolivia is no small decision. If you’re planning to live in Bolivia, or have already arrived, we can assist you with all the details your relocation and adjustment will involve in Santa Cruz or Cochabamba, and will inform you when we've expanded.
