There are three main types of Colombia visas:
You can carry out your planned trip to Colombia by obtaining a Colombia visa. Reasons for applying for this visa can be tourism, visiting family or friends, business travel, short-term education, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. Foreign applicants can stay in Colombia for a maximum of 90 days with a temporary (tourist, business and other short-term purposes) visa.
If you wish to stay in Colombia for a longer period for any reason (e.g., study, work, etc.) you can also apply for a long-term (resident) visa to Colombia.
The Colombia online visa application allows eligible nationals to quickly obtain an eVisa for Colombia and avoid having to stand in long border queues to obtain a visa on arrival or visit the Colombian embassy in person to apply for a visa.
The Colombia eVisa can be issued for various purposes, such as a Colombia tourist visa, a business visa, and an event visa, among several other visa types.
