INFORMATION ON VISAS

 

 


 

  • We attach a chart of visa requirements applicable to official delegates and guests attending the Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Americas Region, especially those that require a visa for Colombia, according to the chart attached.
  • The Government has taken steps to provide appropriate facilities for the visits of delegates from ITU Member-Countries and other international guests, especially those who require visas.
  • The intention is to give Courtesy Visas to those from countries that require a visa to enter Colombia, as accredited official delegates or guests attending the Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Americas Region, to be held in Santa Marta, Colombia, on September 9-11.
  • The visa may be applied for at any Colombian Consulate or Embassy, regardless of whether the applicant is in the country of which he is a national or not.
  • On the occasion of this ITU Meeting, and only for exceptional cases, if for some reason a national of a country whose citizens need a visa for Colombia does not have the visa but can show that he is an official delegate to attend the Americas Regional Preparatory Meeting, the Government will guarantee entry, and the delegate or guest will be able to obtain the visa at the event, in Bogotá D.C.
  • For these exceptional cases, the participant must send to Mr. Eufracio Morales, Visa Coordination Adviser in the Foreign Ministry (eufracio.morales@cancilleria.gov.co) the following: 1) copy of the main page of current passport showing photo, name, Passport No., date and place of birth, date of issue of passport, etc.; 2) travel schedule; and 3) ITU letter invitation.
  • Citizens of other countries who do not require a visa will enter Colombia following the normal migration procedures, and the migration authority DAS will record movements for a "Permit to enter and stay in Colombia as a temporary visitor". The Permit will be stamped in the visitor's passport upon entry.

Those who need a Courtesy Visa should provide the following documents:

1. Valid passport

2. Application form (attached)

3. Two recent color photos (light background)

4. Note requesting the visa, accreditation or invitation to this ITU event.

In the table that follows:

(**) denotes countries where the Colombian Consulate will need to obtain Foreign Ministry authorization in advance to issue a visa to a national.
