In Colombia, new immigration provisions will come into force on October 22, 2022, which require the issuance of a visa for digital nomads. The visa is issued for 2 years.
Not only remote freelancers can get new visas, but also startups who want to open a digital business in Colombia. Applicants must have a monthly income of at least $685, must provide proof of remote employment, and purchase Colombian health insurance.
In the package of documents, the applicant includes bank statements and letters from one or more foreign companies in English or Spanish, which confirm the fact of the applicant’s employment. Consideration takes about 30 calendar days.
