Don't worry about requirements, the only requirement that matters is money. It costs about $90 or so to get into Bolivia, maybe less, maybe more, it changes. All the countries south of the US are pretty lax compared to the US. The biggest hassle you'll probably have on your trip will be returning home at customs.

When you arrive in a country you get a proof of entry (temp. visa for 90 days TIP: Always ask for more, my friend got a temp. visa for 6 months just by asking for it), when you leave you get an exit. When you get to Lima find SAE (South American Explorers) club, as they have the up to date information on Bolivia and all the other countries.

Also avoid getting travel immunizations in America. It's a complete rip-off. I spent $300 for Hep. B, yellow fever and something else, can't remember. Bring a your syringe and you get any vac. down in the country for tons cheaper and just as effective if that is you even need it.

Have fun and if you start missing home, just visit larcomar in Lima.

I just went into Boliva from Peru as well and they do not need proof of onward travel. The cost for a visa is $131 and that is all they care about. It only takes about five minutes to get a visa....no questions asked. Hope this helps. Reply to this

Hello thomas,

First you search the bolivia-usa.org website for know the current visa information. You can be applied Bolivian tourist visas for by mail or in person at Bolivian consulates in the U.S., as well as at Bolivian ports of entry, such as at Bolivia’s international airports and at land border crossings.
