After three years of maintaining strict health measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Colombian government lifted the vaccination requirement.

According to the Travel Regulations Map maintained by the IATA, Colombia has stopped requiring foreign travelers to submit COVID vaccination proof.

The update was announced on May 4th, 2023. In practice, it means that tourists arriving in Colombia no longer will need to show vaccination certificates to board the flight to Colombia.

Neither are they required to undergo pre-departure tests nor are they subject to post-arrival symptom checking. 

The news is welcomed by all unvaccinated travelers who were previously banned from entry to Colombia or, instead, were forced to provide a negative test to enter the country. 

Check-MIG Form remains in force

While COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, the Government of Colombia did not remove the requirement to complete the Check-MIG form before arriving in Colombia as well as when departing the country.

Submitting the Check-MIG is currently the only post-covid requirement, while all the questions related to immunization have been removed from the declaration.

Travelers should remember to complete the form within 24 hours before the planned entry to or exit from Colombia. 

Summary of current entry requirements

Currently, to travel to Colombia, travelers are no longer required to present the following documents:

  • vaccination proof confirming they have received a complete COVID-19 vaccine course
  • a negative antigen test performed before departure
  • undergo isolation after arrival in Colombia if unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated
  • submit mandatory health insurance with COVID-19 coverage

To sum up, traveling to Colombia now requires only having a valid passport and satisfying visa requirements.
