Jeg forsøker etter beste evne å holde meg oppdatert på Travel Warning som gis ut fra offisielle steder. Så samler jeg de her på min side slik at jeg enkelt kan finne de igjen når jeg begynner å nærme meg det aktuelle landet.
Travel Warning for Bolivia var ikke kritisk men siden den bl.a. nevner en spesifikk by kan det jo være greit å i alle fall ha dette i tankene selv om tilstanden kan ha endret seg innen jeg kommer dit.
We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Bolivia because of ongoing political and social tensions and the risk of serious crime. Pay close attention to your personal security at all times. Monitor the media and other sources about possible new security risks.
Prolonged industrial action and social conflict in the region of Potosí has resulted in road blockades and subsequent shortages of food and water. Roads to and from the city of Potosí are closed. Public transport, including tourist buses, has been disrupted. Banks are closed. Some stores are open, but only for a few hours around noon.
The political situation in Bolivia remains unpredictable. There is an ongoing risk of civil unrest, including roadblocks, violent protests and strikes. We advise you not to cross roadblocks set up by protesters.
Demonstrations, violent protests and strikes can occur at any time and may seriously affect domestic and international travel plans without notice. You should remain alert and avoid large crowds which have the potential to turn violent. Due to ongoing demonstrations, we advise you to seek local advice before travelling to or from Uyuni. See Safety and security.
Travellers who ascend to altitudes greater than 2500metres are at risk of developing altitude sickness. Altitude sickness can be life threatening and can affect anyone, including the physically fit. Many areas of Bolivia, including La Paz, Salar de Uyuni and Lake Titicaca are above 2500metres.
