COLOMBIAFebruary 26, 2015

Announced at the end of last year, Colombia now requires Canadians entering Colombia to pay a non-refundable entry fee of COP 160,000.  (This fee equates to approximately CAN 78 or USD 65).  The entry fee was announced in response to Canada’s 2014 decision to require Colombian nationals to pay COP 155,000 when applying for a Canadian visa to cover the costs of a biometrics review. Several exceptions to this requirement have been announced, including Canadian arriving via a cruise ship, airline crew members transiting through Colombia, diplomats and Canadian nationals entering Colombia with a Colombian visa.
