Consular Report of Death of an American Citizen in Bolivia

The Embassy will issue a Consular Report of Death of an American Citizen Abroad upon presentation of a local death certificate and proof that the deceased is an American citizen.  This document will serve to settle most legal and estate matters in the United States.

The American Citizen Services unit in the Consular Section in La Paz can issue up to 10 copies of the Consular Report of Death of an American Citizen, which are usually sufficient to settle matters in the United States.
