Non-resident foreigners over 18 years of age will not be able to enter the country if they are not vaccinated against covid-19, according to guidelines indicated by the Government of Colombia. In the case of having an incomplete vaccination schedule or if the last dose was administered less than 14 days before arrival in the country, a negative PCR valid for 72 hours must be presented. The vaccines accepted by the Colombian government are those that are authorized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The vaccination certificate must be shown when checking in with the airline and when going through Immigration. This must have the following information: names and surnames of the holder, type and number of identity document, name of the vaccine applied, date of each dose and number of doses administered.
Both nationals and foreigners must pre-register migration 72 hours before their trip.
There are currently no national intercity travel bans. For their part, commercial establishments and other economic activities are open, but biosecurity measures such as the use of masks (in Colombia they are called face masks), social distancing, hand washing and ventilation, are still in force. Until February 15th 2022, at least 63% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to data from Our World In Data, and 16% have received a booster dose.
There are no curfews due to covid-19 in Colombia.
