VISAS : Regulations change frequently, but currently citizens of Japan and most EU countries can stay 90 days without a visa; citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand can stay 30 days without a visa. Most other nationalities require a visa in advance - usually issued for a 30-day stay.

SECURITY : You just need a little caution and your walks by the cities of Bolivia will become an unforgettable experience of blue sky, snowy silhouettes, with cotton clouds, old mansions of colonial and republican airs, narrow and irregular streets and avenues of vertiginous traffic tattooed of modernity.

To become unforgettable this experience, keep always with you a photocopy of your passport and of your air ticket; also, take only the necessary money and be very careful with your personal belongings (jewels, photographic equipment, video cameras, etc), because although the Bolivian cities are extremely welcoming and calm, they are not free of acts of delinquency.

PHONE SERVICES : Getting communicated by phone doesn't represent any difficulty in Bolivian lands. Besides the public booths located strategically in the main streets and avenues, there are offices of the National Company of Telecommunications (Entel) from which can be carried out calls to the world.

HEALTH : Tourists coming from countries in those that cases of yellow fever have been reported, should present a vaccination certificate to enter Bolivia. That is the only immunization document that is requested, but, you, for caution, should consult with your doctor and, if find it necessary, be vaccinated against the hepatitis A, the cholera or the tetanus.

The illness that more frequently affects to the travelers is the light diarrhea. To slip away of this annoying malaise, you can take some precautions:

  • Drink only boiled or bottled water. Avoid to consume it directly of the faucet.
  • Do not eat raw vegetables or milky products, as cheese, yogurt and milk, ice or ice creams of doubtful origin, because they could be made with faucet water.
  • Wash your hands before ingesting your foods.

Medical insurance

It is recommendable -before undertaking your trip through Bolivian lands- to hire a medical insurance in your origin country. This way you will be protected in case any emergency occurred
