    • Any experience with getting a Colombian visa /e-visa?

      Colombia May 19, 2015 at 1:39 PM

      I am traveling to Ecuador in July, and would love to spend a couple of weeks in Bogota on my way in or out, since it's where I am flying into anyway. However, I do need a visa for Colombia - and since I live in Macedonia, and don't have a Colombian embassy and/or consulate here, it seems like the easiest way to go for it would be to go for the e-visa.

      I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with going through the process? On the official website, it says that once the e-visa has been approved, one still has to get a stamp in their passport - either in the Visa and Immigration Office in Bogota, or in the nearest consulate. I have a couple of questions:

      • Does it make a difference whether I'd get the stamp in Colombia or in a consulate in a neighboring country?
      • Is getting the e-visa the same as getting a regular visa? Do I stand more chances in getting it if I actually go to the nearest embassy? (which, as it turns out, isn't close to my country at all, so e-visa would still be the best option for me)
      • Is getting a Colombian visa a fair possibility? I mean, if I have all the right documents etc, should I be worried about not getting it?

      Thank you in advance for your replies. Any extra info on this would be more than welcome :-)

      All the best,

      Did anyone traveling with turcol have to leave their passports with the company? This doesn't seem safe - please advise.

      do they allow you to buy any of their product from them? I know they don't process the stuff but am wondering about the paste or base.

      Hi there! Just wondering if anybody knew the email address ( providing that they have one set up ) of the travel agency 'Turcol' in Santa Marta, Colombia . They run the six day trekking tour to the lost city ( Ciudad Perdida ) in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Any info regarding this agency or the tour in general would be much appreciated! Thanks b302
