Colombia

Översikt

Although security has improved in the past decade, the risk of violent rebel activity, including attacks on military, police and energy targets, remains high in certain areas despite an ongoing series of peace negotiations with rebel group FARC. Organised crime and the production of cocaine are major security concerns. Protests and strikes are frequent and often disruptive, particularly in the agricultural sector. Environmental disasters, most notably floods and landslides, are frequent.

Hälsa, sjukdomar och vaccination

Travellers are advised to consult a travel health specialist or general practitioner (GP) at least four to eight weeks prior to departure.

It is essential to check that all vaccinations are up to date including tetanus-diphtheria and measles, mumps and rubella. Vaccinations against hepatitis A&B and typhoid are recommended.

A Yellow Fever vaccination is recommended for all travellers. Those solely travelling to the cities of Bogotá, Cali or Medellín where the risks of Yellow Fever are less may wish to forgo immunization. This should however, be discussed with both your medical consultant and diplomatic mission, especially if intending to travel into neighbouring countries after your visit. Malaria prophylaxis in the form of lariam, malarone or doxycline is recommended.

Travellers likely to have direct contact with animals or visit areas without immediate medical access are advised to have the rabies vaccination.

Outbreaks of dengue fever have affected parts of Colombia, especially its Caribbean regions. There is no current vaccination against dengue fever and it is advisable to use insect repellent at all times. To avoid being bitten it is also advisable to wear clothing that will not expose your skin.

It is advisable to take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance prior to travel. Private medical facilities are of good standard throughout most Colombian cities although treatment can be expensive. Medical services in many rural areas are extremely limited.

Most towns and cities are served by at least one pharmacy. Numerous European and American medicines are available but can be expensive. If on medication you are advised to take sufficient supplies with you for the duration of your stay.

Pass

Visitors to Colombia must travel on a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of first entry into the country.

Visum

Visas for stays of up to 90 days are not required for most American, Canadian, Australian and Western European nationals. It is possible to extend this to a maximum of 120 extra days once inside the country. Extensions can be obtained from Migration Colombia. A fee for this extension is usually required. Under no circumstances is it permitted to outstay the prescribed number of days, and failure to adhere to this rule will incur a fine and possible detention or deportation. Visitors must also hold an onward/return flight ticket or evidence that they intend to leave the country by alternative means. They may also be required to provide evidence for possession of sufficient funds for the duration of their stay.

Travellers with visas valid for three months or longer need to register their visa at a Migración Colombia office or on-line within 15 days of arrival in Colombia.

It is advisable to contact your diplomatic mission to Colombia prior to travel in order to learn of individual travel requirements. Those visiting Colombia for non-travel related purposes must enquire about their specific visa requirements.

It is essential to retain your immigration landing card as it is required to leave the country. You may be subject to a fine if this is lost. It is also advisable to carry a photocopy of your passport and Colombian visa with you at all times, separate from the original documentation.

A Yellow Fever vaccination certificate may be required if travelling to the jungle or if you have recently travelled to an infected country. Upon leaving the country you may be required to provide evidence of Yellow Fever vaccination by the authorities of your destination country.
