There are 3 types of visas for foreigners who wish to live in Colombia. If you are planning to stay in Colombia for less than six months for tourist purposes, you may need to apply for a tourist visa. 

Located primarily in the northwest of South America (with some territories in Central America), Colombia welcomes travellers with its Caribbean beaches, cobblestone towns and villages, enigmatic ancient civilisation and a diversity of landscapes.

Both visitors and those who stay long term in Colombia will have no shortage of things to do. Colombia’s rich culture and diverse natural landscape mean that expats will have a wide range of leisure activities to choose from.

Moving is stressful and requires good planning. A shipping company will greatly reduce the stress of moving your belongings internationally as they will coordinate both the removal of your things as well as all documents needed to clear customs.
