Over the past decade, Colombia has emerged as one of Latin America’s most popular tourist destinations.
According to official data, the country saw an increase in foreign visitors by almost 200 percent between 2010 and 2019.
This is thanks to its breathtaking landscapes, Caribbean flair, vibrant culture, efficient tourism infrastructure and sense of security in its main tourist destinations.
Colombia recently enacted a new immigration law that is scheduled to take effect on October 22, 2022.
The current structure of the visa system, which is divided into three primary visa types – visitor visas, migrant visas, and resident visas- will not be affected by the new law. However, the new law adds additional visa classifications and changes the application process.
