I flew from Buenos Aires EZE to Bolivia (Santa Cruz de la Sierra VVI layover, then La Paz LPB final destination) and during the flight (Boliviana De Aviacion flight 709 + Boliviana De Aviacion flight 681) I was asked by one of the flight attendants to complete formulario 250, which eventually nobody looked at.

Is there any point in completing the formulario 250 when flying to Bolivia?

  • This is a seriously flawed question. The premise is based on the experience of one individual on one occasion. Even the one answer admits that it's little more than guesswork.

    @Arthur'sPass what's the flaw in the question itself? My related experience only motivates why I'm asking the question. Sample size = 1 doesn't prevent me from asking the question, on the contrary. Jan 24, 2020 at 23:35

    @Arthur'sPass I don't see how it makes the question flawed as if the single occurrence doesn't reflect the typical case then simply state it so in an answer Jan 25, 2020 at 0:20

This is thin ice for an Answer, but I'll bet the reality is:

a) The Bolivian government issued this form to be completed by those entering the country;

b) The Bolivian government makes airlines distribute the forms to incoming passengers; and

c) Sometimes, maybe even most of the time, a Bolivian officer will demand the completed form on arrival.
