Mexico Visa for Bolivian Citizens

Visit Mexico by Land or Air

Mexico is one of the most beautiful countries out there. It has a unique culture and a temperate climate that make it an ideal place to visit. However, the Mesoamerican and the European fusion make it an attractive destination that you need to add to your bucket list.

As a Bolivian citizen, you must be keen to visit the country and explore the culture. If you plan on visiting Mexico anytime soon, you will need a Mexico Tourist Card in addition to your visa. One Tourist Card allows one person to travel. So, more than one person can’t use the same Tourist Card.
