I plan to travel from Mumbai to Bolivia. My current itinerary is:

  1. Mumbai to Dubai on Emirates (0430 - 0600 03APR)
  2. Dubai to Sao Paulo, Brazil on Emirates (0905 - 1700 03APR)
  3. Sao Paulo to Viru Viru airport on Boliviana (1835 - 2025 03APR)

picture of itinerary

Does an Indian Passport Holder require a Bolivian visa or will visa be on arrival?

Secondly, does this itinerary require a transit visa at Sao Paulo airport?

Last question, will baggage be through-checked until Bolivia?

    Can you please write out the airports and the times? I can only see a coloured bar. And those who can't see pictures can not see it at all.
