Planning for Deposition Travel to Colombia

Entry Requirements for Colombia

With teams living nearby, Planet Depos offers 24/7 assistance for all of your deposition needs in Colombia. Our teams have been covering depositions in Colombia for over 15 years, and are therefore considered one of the leading experts in anything pertaining to covering depositions there. We will be more than happy to share this expertise and guide you through the scheduling process, travel and document assistance in Colombia.

There are no special visas (tourist or business) required to enter Colombia for a stay of less than 90 days. A valid passport is required. Planet Depos does recommend traveling with a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond your departure date from Colombia. You will need one blank passport page for the entry stamp. However, Planet Depos recommends having at least 2 blank pages. You will also need to check any countries you pass through to determine if a separate transit visa is required, as there are not many direct flights to Colombia from the U.S.

For more information, you can also contact the Colombian Embassy (2118 Leroy Place NW Washington DC 20008)

For updated health information, including health travel alerts and immunizations, please visit the Colombia specific website for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Money Matters

Colombia’s currency is the Colombian Peso. The exchange of foreign currency should only be made in hotels, banks and bureaus de change, never on the street, as that can be dangerous. ATMs are available in all major cities, but again, street ATMs should not be used for safety reasons. Major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard) are widely accepted.

For up-to-date information on the local conversion rate, please visit a reputable currency converter website such as OANDA which also offers an app for smartphones.


Colombia is an equatorial country, and her climatic variations are determined by trade winds, humidity, and most of all, altitude. There are two seasons, and two rainy periods (April to June, then August to November) and two dry periods (July and December to March).   The temperatures vary little throughout the year, but do vary by altitude. The upland areas and mountains are cooler, while the Amazon region is generally warm and wet year round. Bogota enjoys spring-like days all year, with cool days and crisp nights, although when the sun is shining, it can be quite hot during the day.
