Visas for Bolivia - New Zealand Passport Holders

by Stuart
(New Zealand)

Are visas required for holders of New Zealand passport holders? If I am travelling in areas where is no Yellow Fever, do I still need to be inocculated & provide proof of the same?


Thanks,
Stuart

Consulate of Paraguay in Puerto Iguazú Argentina
by: Bella

I may have found your answer! There is a Consulate of Paraguay in Puerto Iguazú, Argentina here:

Puerto Iguazú - Consulado de Paraguay
Address: Avenida Cordoba Nº 370
City: Puerto Iguazú
Phone Local: (03757) 424.230
Internacional: +54.3757.424.230

I found this information here:
http://embassy-finder.com/es/paraguay_in_argentina

The same information can be found here:
http://www.mrecic.gov.ar/portal/guia-dip/of-consulares/consulado.php?pais=20

So I guess it must be true. Neither site has an email address though.

P.S. This is the information for Paraguay Immigration just in case:

Dirección General de Migraciones
Address: Caballero Esq. Eligio Ayala - Edificio Aurora
Phones: (+595 21) 446 066 - 492 908 - 446 673
Email: contacto@migraciones.gov.py
Website: http://www.migraciones.gov.py/

Cheers from Bolivia!
Bella.

Paraguay
by: don Estuardo

I wish there were an equivalent website for Paraguay, a country that provides little or no help in getting information about visas and where to obtain them.

I will fly straight from Auckland to Puerto Iguazu on Lan Chile. This is an expensive place to stay so I don't want to dawdle. From Aguazu I want to travel overland to Bolivia via Paraguay which requires a visa that be got from a consulate or Embassy. I know there is a Paraguayan Consulate in Aguazu and I have its e-mail address. They do NOT reply.

Does anyone out there have any information about getting a visa in Puerto Aguazu?

Thank you,

bolivia visas for new zealand citizens
by: BoliviaBella

According to the Bolivian Foreign Affairs website citizens of New Zealand (Nueva Zelandia) are in Group 1 and do not need a visa to enter Bolivia, as you can see here.

http://www.rree.gob.bo/webmre/documentos/servicios/d43.htm

As to the Yellow Fever vaccine, Biministerial Resolution 01/2007 states that everyone over 12 months of age must have a yellow fever vaccination card or immunization certificate to Bolivia. However, the document Vacuna Contra la Fiebre Amarilla, found on the same website states that authorities from the Ministry of Health and Sports passed another Ministerial Resolution 0028 dated 21 January 2009, whereby the yellow fever shot will be required exclusively of foreigners who will be traveling to zones at risk of yellow fever (there's a list of those zones) and they must have the yellow fever vaccine a minimum of 10 days prior to entering Bolivia.

Have an awesome trip and when you're done be sure to visit us again and share your travel story, si?
