Visa for South African

I will be doing a 3 month trip through South America from June. Visa's aren't a problem on my South African passport, except for Bolivia. I have to get one before I get there, but the visa is only valid for 30 days after it's issued. We leave London in May, and won't be in 1 place long enough to get a visa. Has anyone else had issues with Bolivia visa's? I spoke with the Bolivian embassy, and they said that due to my circumstances, the authorities at the Peru/Bolivia border SHOULD understand, and issue me with a visa.

Hi Brad. I can relate! There isn't even a consulate in SA! If I were you I wouldn't wait until you reach the border though. I know a couple of people who've been turned away. Are you sure you can't spare any time to pick up a visa somewhere along the way? how long are you in Puno? I've set aside a day to sort mine out in Buenos Aires as I could spare some time there, although I still have no assurances that I'll get it on that day. Good luck though! I hope it works out for you! It's my biggest anxiety issue right now too!
