1. When is the best time to apply for my Bolivia visa? The best time to apply for your Bolivia visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.
  2. Do I have to send you my passport to get a Bolivia visa? Is it safe to send a passport? You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Bolivia visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application and passport to Travisa in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx, UPS, Express Mail or Certified Mail.
