Uyuni Border Crossing Info (American & Israeli travelers)

Hi My wife and I will be crossing the SPA border to Uyuni, She is an American and I have both American and Israeli passports.

Do we need to have ANYTHING other than our passports?

I was going to use my Israeli Passport to save $$$, is that a bad idea?

I've heard we may need passport photo's or even photocopies of our passport, also possibly proof of vaccinations?

Can someone please tell us there experience.

You would probably get a better answer in the Bolivia forum, but I do know an American passport holder needs a visa for Bolivia. I do not know about an Israeli passport. Last I heard it was US$135 pp but this may have gone up as most reciprocity fees and visas went up this year. As for the yellow fever vaccination certificate, some people seem to get asked for it and others not. They may be able to clear it up for you on the Bolivia forum. Post to the general Bolivia forum and not Uyuni so more people see it.

This, meanwhile, describes the process a bit and I hope it helps.

There's a post on this very topic on the Bolivia forum this week..

You may also have to check if the US requires any proof of Yellow Fever inoculation if visiting certain countries where it is thought to be prevalent.
