Description

Here you get the stamp for your passport. Friendly staff and really quick.
==============================
This is where you go first to get your immigration passport stamp at the new police station, when entering/exiting Bolivia. we got our Travel Permit here, they wanted 100 Bolivar, but we said we had to go to the bank, eventually he told us to go. the permit is only to Santa Cruz.

Entering Bolivia. Fast and easy paperwork. They asked our expected route and then gave us the maximum tourist stay (90 days). Friendly staff, didn’t ask for money.

Go here first, then the aduana, also if you are leaving Bolivia. Meaning you have to drive 15-20min extra coming from San Ifnacio. Felt inefficient. Furthermore quick stamp and go

There seemed to be a lot of confusion about how much time we were allowed as we had been to Bolivia earlier and some questions were asked that seemed almost like they might be inching toward trying to solicit a bribe. In spite of this, they were polite and it ended up being a fairly quick process.

Friendly staff, they asked for our itinerary and the time we want to stay in Bolivia. Like this we don't need to register on the online platform our locations. Orden of translado isn't necessary anymore, we already traveled for 2 months in Bolivia and no one ever asked for this. No copies necessary.

Actually I had quite the opposite experience. I asked for the transit document, they told me I didn't need it. they even said it was only to get to Santa Cruz and pointless. then all the police came into a room with me and said not to worry. then the chief stamped th Aduna paper, dated it and signed it. I said I still wanted the transit paper. They said fine, will give you one. No money requested. They were angry that I kept asking for the paper!

Immigration and police building. We got our exit stamp here. If you’re entering Bolivia you need to get your “Orden de Translado” by the police here.

*The Order de Translado is a single sheet document issued by the police with your name and vehicle info stating where you’ll be driving to in Bolivia. There’s not cost associated with this document but the police will asked to paid anywhere from 50 to 100 Bolivianos every time we crossed into Bolivia. We never pay it and always tell them that we only have a credit card.

This is a brand new building!
1 - Here you stamp your passport and you get the migration paper.
2 - you go do copies of your passport, stamps, migration paper, for safety do your vehicle paper too.
3 - After you have to go to the other side of the city to get your vehicle register at the aduana.
4 - you come back here to get an "orden de trasaldo" which we pay 50 BOL

NB: some say you have to insist to get the name of all driver on the vehicle registration at the aduana, i've ask for it and insist explaning that I don't want problem with the police in case of control if I drive, he said if I am with the owner and with a licence there won't be any problem. But on the observation section of the orden de traslado I ask to inform that we ate 2 drivers. And he did it! ;)
Later we lost the vehicle registration (at a point check a young military ask for "contribution" which we deny and we think he kept the paper) but the orden de traslado helped us to prove we had the paper and we should be able to re-do the vehicle registration in Santa cruz.
Hope it helped!! Good luck!
