There are THREE tourist visa groups under Bolivian Law. You can see the lists of countries in each group on the Bolivian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. The groups are as follows (the links below will open up PDF files with the country lists which are available on their website.)

Group 1 is a list of countries whose citizens do not need a tourist visa to enter Bolivia as tourists.

Group 2 is a list of countries whose citizens DO need a tourist visa, but will be issued one upon arrival.

Group 3 is a list of countries whose citizens DO need a tourist visa AND must obtain it prior to traveling to Bolivia, by visiting a Bolivian consulate in your country of origin.

(Please be aware that the above named Bolivian government websites are not always updated immediately when laws change. It is still best to contact a Bolivian consulate to obtain the latest information regarding visas for citizens of your country, prior to traveling to Bolivia. If there is no Bolivian consulate in your country, contact the Bolivian consulate in the country nearest to you.) Click here to find a Bolivian consulate.
