UK Citizen applying for a residency visa
Hello everyone. My name is Paul and I am from the UK. I have recently discovered this wonderful website.
I have looked through the forum and can not see a more recent answer to a few questions I have concerning apply for a residency visa.
My girlfriend is from Sucre and has recently returned to Bolivia after living with me in the UK for 6 months.
For the next stage of our relationship I want to go out to live with her for the next year while she finishes University.
I have spent 6 months previous in Sucre on a tourist visa and a student visa and I am now researching the temporary resident visa route. I know before I arrive in Bolivia I need to apply for a specific purpose visa. This is where my confusion starts.
I am not sure which one to apply for as there seems to be 3 different types. A filming one, a marriage one and a working one. Can someone please shed some light on which one I need to apply for. Also it says I need a report from the British police. As far as I know the police here only have a record of a citizen if they have a criminal record. So if there are any other British citizens that have gone through this process can you kindly advise me.
My last question for now is once in Bolivia how much roughly and I looking at with the visa/lawyers and medical checks? Foreign friends already in Sucre have quoted anywhere between $500-$900.
Thanks kindly in advance.
