Moving to Colombia with a disability

Hello everyone,

Having a disability should not be a barrier to living abroad. While the intricacies of one’s move to Colombia may be specific to the individual, certain steps can be undertaken to make the process smoother.

What are the important aspects you would personally keep in mind during the planning phase (social security benefits, ongoing medical treatment, etc.)?

Are you required to go through a medical check-up before your move?

Are there any organisations or groups who lend support to expatriates who have a disability?

What are your thoughts on the infrastructure in Colombia (public spaces, transportation and buildings)?

Are there enough opportunities to make the most of your social life in Colombia? Are leisure activities made accessible to people with disabilities? 

Please do share your experience with us.
