Event: Updated COVID-19 Vaccination/Testing Requirements to Enter Colombia

Effective May 1, 2022, Colombia’s Ministry of Health announced updated entry requirements for all travelers aged 18 and older arriving to Colombia.

Resolution 692 states that international travelers entering Colombia must present proof of completion of a COVID-19 vaccination scheme or either a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours prior to the originally scheduled time of embarkment or a PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to the originally scheduled time of embarkment.

Other entry requirements remain unchanged to include wearing a facemask upon entry. Travelers must still complete Migracion Colombia’s online Check-Mig form. For further details about general entry requirements, including COVID-19 vaccination requirements, visit U.S. Embassy Bogota’s page here.
