INTERACTIVE GUIDE TO CROSS-BORDER ROUTES

Web Page Builder

Please read: We've set up this guide for those specifically interested in bus routes that cross an international border. Many of you are looking for bus tickets to show to an airline for proof of exit from the country they are flying you to.  Others need to renew their Visa by just crossing the nearest border and coming back in. There are several other reasons that are your own concern, and AndesTransit is not able to offer any legal or immigration advice, nor provide favors just to satisfy an external requirement. We just sell tickets.

Having said, that, please be aware that cross-border tickets are legal instruments, and not to be taken lightly. They go on record to tell an immigration department of how you are going to comply with their laws, and they obligate a bus company to spend their resources to come and transport you, so please be mindful of the complicated chain of events and wide network of persons your ticket touches the moment you purchase it and gain possession of it. Some are non-refundable, while others are partially refundable.
