Moving to Colombia – important information at a glance
The type of transport documents and Visa for moving to Colombia depends on the duration of your stay in the country. We provide advice to you regarding emigration and support you for implementation of your project. A dynamic network of qualified employees with experience operates for us on-site.
Residence permits: For a long stay, a visa is necessary, but for a vacation trip, it is not necessary. Depending on the type and duration of the stay, a residence visa or a short-term visa is processed. The visa for the self-employed is officially called as “visa para el ejercicio de oficios o actividades independientes”. This so-called TP-7-Visa is valid for one year and can be extended. You must notarise the necessary certificates of employment of the private employer required for this.
Others: Colombians are open to the immigrants from Germany, as it is a well-reputed country. Skilled trades like Baker, Confectioner, and Butcher are especially popular. Colombia is an immigration friendly country and aims to unlock its commercial potential. One willingly intends to leave behind the negative image, the drugs and smuggling of weapons brought along with him. Germans can easily purchase real estate. They are also attractive in terms of price. All purchases must be compulsorily processed by the Notary.
