Are you looking to live in Colombia part or full time, then you’ll need to have a Colombian visa allowing you to do so.
As a foreigner in Colombia, few things are more complicated or inspire bigger headaches than the process of acquiring a visa to reside in the country. Tales of people getting their applications rejected more than 10 times are common. Colombia is far from alone in this boat. Every year, countries all over the world tighten borders, complicate regulations and make it harder for people to obtain a visa.
In Colombia, there are currently 19 different types of Colombian visas divided into the following categories: business, temporary and resident visas. All visa applications get processed by Migración in Bogota. They are trained in rejecting your application even for tiny errors like typos or misspellings. Every day, foreigners fly to Bogota, stand in line, and spend their entire day just to have their application rejected.
Adding up your time wasted and money spent, you may be better off hiring a professional to help you through the process.
