IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Bolivia’s General Directorate of Migration has introduced an online portal that allows applicants to perform many immigration procedures electronically. The portal has not gone live yet.
What does the change mean? The portal should ease procedures and allow applicants to request certain appointments with local migration authorities online, thereby avoiding having to appear in person and wait in line for visa and permit requests. However, the applications must still be filed in person.
BAL Analysis: Once implemented, the switch to online procedures for appointment requests, certifications and other tasks is expected to save foreign applicants time and allow them to pay government filing fees through a mobile app. Further regulations will clarify details on the system.
