TRIP TIPS FOR TRAVEL TO BOLIVIA (From Amy Peterson-Mills, R.N.)
- In order to get your licensure approved by Bolivia’s Ministry of Health we will need the following documentation as soon as possible. Please forward directly to Amy Peterson-Mills: firstname.lastname@example.org
- copy of your passport
- copy of your medical license
- copy of your med school diploma
- You will pay $160 upon arrival to Santa Cruz for a visa that lasts ten years.
- REQUIRED: Yellow Fever (Make sure to get proof of this vaccine as it is needed when applying for a visa on arrival to Bolivia and often checked for before even leaving the US).
- Typhoid (oral lasts longer than injection)
- Hep A and B
*I was able to get all but yellow fever and typhoid for free at work
- We also recommend a flu shot a few weeks prior to travel because we all know airplanes are just flying petri dishes.
- Malaria meds are recommended, but many of us do without.
Please visit this link with more health info. We will be in the lush, hot and humid eastern lowlands, not the snow-capped Andes. http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/Bolivia
