Cuban citizens wishing to visit Bolivia may do so with a tourist visa. This was communicated by the Bolivian Embassy in Cuba, and it explained the necessary procedures for issuance.At a cost of $30.00 USD, the visa enables a stay in the Andean country for up to 90 days. Hence, it is a good opportunity to use direct flight between the two countries.
In this way, Cuban travelers can stay in Bolivia for reasons of tourism and pleasure, but not engage in non-profit activities.
However, as with any visa acquisition process, there are certain parameters that interested parties must meet.
What are the requirements to get this visa?
We are talking about certain documents that need to be submitted during the application process, especially on the day of the interview.
It is important here that not only the visa applicant provides these documents, but also the Bolivian person making the invitation. By the way, this can be a very complicated process: finding the person to write the invitation letter.
Regardless, the caller in Bolivia must provide a photocopy of the ID card. Additionally, it will display the invitation registration authorization letter and the notarized invitation letter, both of which are valid for six months from the date of issuance.
Finally, you must provide your current bank statement with a minimum of $2000.00 USD or the equivalent in Bolivian currency.
For their part, the Cuban citizen must present the visa application affidavit form available on the official website.
You must have a valid passport with at least six months validity and book a round-trip ticket. Likewise, Criminal Record Certificate and recent photograph notarized by MINREX is required.
You will also need to submit vaccination certificates against yellow fever and Covid-19. For minors, a birth certificate and legal travel authorization will be requested.
These documents are to be submitted to the Consulate at least 21 days prior to the date of travel.
After the application is approved at the interview, the visa fee will be paid at the Central Bank of Bolivia in La Paz. It can also be done by bank transfer in Santa Cruz and Cochabamba.
