Instructions for Voluntary Departures

People requiring departure verification may come to the Consular section any working day between Monday and Thursday at 9 AM. It is not necessary to schedule an appointment. Please use the entrance for visa applicants.

Required Documents:

1. Please bring 2 photocopies of the following documents.

  • ONE of the following DHS/ICE forms:
    – I-392 Notification of Departure of Alien (Bonded)
    – I-294 Warrant of Deportation
    – G-146 Voluntary Departure form
    – Any U.S. Government form or document requesting verification of your departure from the United States.
  • b. Proof of travel dates:
    – Plane ticket or boarding pass for your flight departing the United States.
  • 2. One photograph: in color, white background, 2 x 2 inches.
  • 3. The passport you used to enter and exit the United States and 3 photocopies of the following pages of your passport: 1) the back cover (where it shows a red number), 2) Biographic page, 3) pages showing entry/exit stamps and visas.

Please note:

  • There is no cost for this processing.
  • As part of this processing you will receive a copy of the documents you presented to the Embassy.
  • If you paid a bond in the United States, you must wait for the original G-146/I-392/I-94 form to be processed by the Department of Homeland Security in the U.S. (the average time is three to six months).
  • At that point, if you have questions, do not contact the Embassy, but rather the U.S. Department of Homeland Security office where the bond was posted.
  • Do not write to the Consular section to notify the Embassy of your departure – this will not be considered a valid notification of your departure since you must present in-person
  • This interview does not serve as a visa application; its sole purpose is for you to present before a U.S. Government official to verify your presence in Colombia.
