Colombia Tourist Visa Information

The Colombia online visa application allows eligible foreign citizens to easily obtain an electronic Colombia visa and avoid the need to wait in long border queues to obtain a visa on arrival or visit a Colombian embassy in person to apply for a visa.

A Colombia eVisa may be issued for a variety of travel purposes, as a Colombian tourist visa, business visa, and as a visa to participate in events, among a range of other visa types.

The Colombia visa online may be granted as either a single or multiple entry eVisa and for a range of periods of permitted stay and validity depending on nationality and the purpose of the travel.

To apply for an eVisa for Colombia, it is necessary to fill in the simple online Colombia visa application form, which can be completed in a matter of minutes with basic personal, passport, and travel information.

Travelers will also be required to upload a few pieces of varying supporting information depending on the visa type required, and to pay the Colombia visa fees, in order to submit the Colombia visa application.

Once processed, usually within a few business days, the approved online Colombia travel visa is sent to the traveler’s current email address. A copy can then be printed to present to Colombian immigration authorities on arrival alongside their valid passport.

To obtain certain types of long-term migrant visas, such as a Colombia work visa, an online application can be submitted, but it is still necessary to visit a Colombian consulate or embassy in-person to complete the request.
