Bolivia is one of the countries that practices unrestricted ius soli, by which anyone born on Bolivian territory is granted citizenship by birth.
Bolivian nationality may be acquired by foreigners in one of the following contexts- continued uninterrupted residence in Bolivian territory for more than 3 years; having a child or children born in Bolivian territory; marriage to a Bolivian citizen; having performed military service and having had a minimum residence of two uninterrupted years in Bolivian territory; being over the age of 18 and being descended from a Bolivian father or mother; or contributing in a relevant way to the Bolivian State. All in all, to acquire Bolivian citizenship, the foreign citizen applicant may comply with one of three requirements: time of residency in Bolivian territory, family ties, or services rendered in favour of the Plurinational State of Bolivia.
Dual citizenship is allowed in Bolivia. In fact, the granting of dual citizenship is restricted only for those persons who have criminal and/or police records, both inside and outside Bolivian territory and to those who remained illegally in Bolivia.
While Bolivian law does not recognize multiple citizenship, national regulations do not require the registration of citizenship in the country of origin, nor the resignation of original citizenship.
