    • 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,

    • Bachelor Party in Medellin (Bogota/San Gil)

      by uscguy22 Online Now Jun 6, 2011 at 9:07 AM

      I'm heading for Colombia in August for a Bachelor party. Actually, have friends flying into Colombia from all over the world for this. None of us know what to expect nor what to do. We have this planned so far. 1 Night in Bogota, 2 nights in San Gil (Rafting, Hiking, Paragliding) and 4 nights in Medellin. Curious if the places we're going are safe (or if we should take any special precautions). Also, looking for ideas of waht to do in Bogota/Medellin. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
