Protests began in Bolivia in December following the arrest of the governor of the region of Santa Cruz, Fernando Camacho. We have updated travel advice for British travellers in the region. As part of a regular dialogue with the Bolivian government, we have conversations in relation to security, justice and human rights, among other issues. We will continue to monitor this trend and engage where appropriate.
