Question about Carnet de Extranjero

by Albert
(Santa Cruz)

Is there a specific maximum time in days to pick up your carnet de extranjero once it has been issued? I ask because I intend to travel outside Bolivia for 2 months just after I get my 1 year residence and after having submitted the request at the SEGIP PD: Sorry for my English, as it is not my mother tongue

Carnet for travelling
by: Anonymous

Hi, do i need the carnet if i want to go to Peru and come back to Bolivia ? My Carnet was stolen and i dont want to do all the documents again to get a new one as its a lot of time and quite expensive. Thanks for your answers!

Carnet

You are not required to pick up your carnet when it is issued, however there is the risk that it will be lost before you get a chance to pick it up when you get back. As you probably already know, you can only be outside of Bolivia 90 days without losing your 1-year residency.

You also have the option of going to a lawyer and assigning someone to be your power of attorney (poder) so he/she can pick up the carnet for you. It may cost a little more, but it would be one way to make sure your carnet stays safe :)

Congratulations on your new 1-year residency. And happy travels!

I would pick it up as soon as possible because of the civil/political instability happening right now.

Probably no time limit, but I would suggest picking it up as soon as it is available because things get lost very easily in the offices here because they are so disorganized.
