The U.S. Embassy is exploring additional options for public-private cooperation to repatriate citizens and residents back to the United States. One such possibility is a flight on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. The flight would depart from Santa Cruz to Miami at a cost of approximately $1500. Connecting flights would depart from Tarija and Trinidad airports to Santa Cruz for an additional $400. Ground transportation from the cities of Tarija, Trinidad, and Santa Cruz to the airport would be provided and arranged within the estimated price.
The Consular Section is collecting more detailed information on U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) in Bolivia who seek assistance in traveling back to the United States during the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. All citizens and LPRs seeking urgent repatriation to the United States should provide the needed information on this U.S. Citizen and LPR Repatriation Form. A form should be filled out for each member of a family or group requesting assistance. We ask that anyone who has previously contacted the Embassy by phone or email to again provide information on the Repatriation Form if you remain in Bolivia and need assistance.
