How do get Bolivia Visa?
Dear Bolivian Consulate in China!
My group (4 people) is Vietnamese. We have a trip around South America at March/2017. At present we had visa of Peru, Brazil, Chile. But we don't have visa of Bolivia because Bolivia do not have Consulate in Vietnam. So I ask to you, how do we get tourist visa of Bolivia?. In our itinerary, we'll go to Bolivia by bus from Puno. Can we get direct Bolivia Visa by road in Bolivia border gate?
Do you require conditions when our enter to your country?
Please respond soon for me because we are looking forward to visit your beautiful country.
Thanks and best regards!

You can renew your passport first and then apply a visa for China. Or you can contact the hostel and see if they can mail your luggage to you.

AL, I checked the website of Chinese embassy in Bolivia. There is no information that applicants from the third countries can apply in Bolivia. So it's hard to tell whether you can apply or not. You may contact the embassy to confirm this.

Frankly speaking, you can apply but there is no guarantee that you will get it successfully. If you fail, then you may fly to HK and apply there. It's much easier to apply in HK, I guess.
