Entering Bolivia

Near Copacbana - October 5, 2012

Easy crossing, just very expensive if you are a US citizen. Go to immigration, fill our the tourist card, and visa forms if you are from the US. Get the visa stamp and entry stamp. Go to aduana and turn in vehicle title, drivers passport and one copy of each. Vehicle permit is free. Note that Aduana is closed between 1-2 Bolivia time (that's 12-1 Peru time). Before leaving you need to vist the transito office just to the right of immigration and fill out the ledger. If you happen to need a visa (but are not a US citizen), for example, South Africans, apply for a visa in Puno, Peru. It is free if you apply in advance, but 360 Bolivianos if you apply at the border. There are now ATM machines in Copacabana, but not much else at the border. Photos and all the details you could ever want on our site.

Exiting Bolivia 

Hijo Canjon, remote Southwest corner - October 29, 2012

Aduana for this border crossing is about 80km north of the border and in between Laguna Colorado and Laguna Chalviri at S22 26.454 W67 48.357. You must stop here an turn in your vehicle permit. At the national park buildings a few kilometers for the border there are bathrooms and garbage cans. The border post has nothing but a small room with some grumpy guys in it. Hand over your passports for the exit stamp. They will ask for a Bs15 exit fee. They couldn't give us a reciept and so we refused. They dropped it and let us go. The Chilean immigration post is another 40km down the hill in San Pedro de Atacama. Thankfully it's a beautifully paved road. Full details here.

Villacamba border crossing We first stopped at 'control Matancillas' where they stamped the vehicle import permit and inspected our passports before waving us through to the border. Inexplicably when the Bolivian border officials saw we were traveling with a car they brought us to the front of the line at the aduana, the 'Salida de Bolivia' window. The asked for our passports and inspected our visa (we are from the US so need visa). They stamped the entry cards and our passports, and asked for a copy of our vehicle import permit. At the police station when we turned in a copy of our vehicle import permit they asked for 13 bolivianos which is probably not legit but we caved in. We then proceeded across the bridge and turned in our original vehicle import permit at the Aduana Integrada. The Argentinian border patrol, who wear blue jackets with the Argentinian flag on the sleeve and a big AFIP/Aduana written across their backs, also waved us to the front of the aduana line. They also took our passports, checked that we had an exit stamp (sello in Spanish) from Bolivia, and our car title and told us to wait by our car. They processed our passports for us, then told us to go to the Aduana for our car import papers. After getting our info from our passports and car title, they gave us our import permit and the car was inspected by a border official.
