    • 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,

    • Traveling into Brazil/Amazon rainforest--Brazil visa?

      Leticia Jun 20, 2009 at 10:32 PM

      I will be traveling to leticia in august. I want to explore some of the amazon rainforest in brazil. I know a brazil visa is required for americans. Is it necessary if I will be taking day trips from leticia? Are there passport checks if I'm taking a boat into brazil to stay for a night. I would love to avoid the 200 fee as I am a cheap traveller.

      Let me know your experiences with crossing between Colombia (leticia) and Brazil.

      Thinking of going a short trip to Leticia area in jan or febr.Will stay only
      3-5days. Maybe try to catch a boat to Iquitos and back.
      My questions are
      1, Is this a good or bad time for malaria or is it the same all year round in this area?
      2, Is it recommended to take pills for this short trip?
      3, Are there any other places(cities) worth seeing between Leticia and Iquitos where we can leave the boat?
      4, What is the nearest place in Peru (to Leticia) and how do we get there.
      5, Is it possible to go on any kind of fishing trip from Leticia?
