Requirements for Entering Colombia and Visa Information:

When entering Colombia as a tourist, you need a valid Passport (Citizens from some countries may need a visa, list below). Your passport will be stamped upon entry stating the number of days allowed (usually 30 to 60 days). You may stay longer by applying for an extension at DAS.

Citizens of the USA do not need a Visa for entering Colombia as a tourist , but they may need a Visa to enter for other purposes. There are many types of Visas for Colombia; three of the most commonly requested are Business, Pension, and Marriage Visas, but all Visa applications have similar requirements. For more information or application forms go to any Colombia Embassy or Consulate website. There are also many Immigration Attorneys and Visa Expeditors that can assist you if you need Information or help with the Visa process.

If you are considering purchasing property in Colombia,
You are required to have a Colombian Cedula (Colombia ID Card). You first need a Visa in order to apply for the Cedula. For information about applying for a Colombian Visa, go to the web site of the Colombia Embassy in Washington D.C. ...or the web sites of the Miami or Houston Consulates. Recommend Miami and Houston web sites!  There is no requirement at all to have a cedula or visa to purchase property in Colombia, that is false.  Foreigners have the same property rights as Colombians and can purchase with a passport.
