Colombia is the newest nation to provide a digital nomad visa, and it is becoming more and more popular for remote work.

Colombia was recently listed as one of the most affordable countries to live in 2023 by International Living magazine. You will pay EUR2,087 for a one-bedroom flat in Bogata for a period of six months. Colombia is the perfect location for people who work during American business hours because it shares the same time zone as some eastern US states.

Eligibility Criteria for Colombia Digital Nomad Visa

  • You must have a current passport that was either issued by Colombia or by a nation that is not required to obtain a short-stay visa.
  • You’ll also need to present evidence of your employment and insurance. You can use bank statements as evidence for your income. You might not be needed to apply for a short-stay visa if your salary is more than this.

The maximum stay is 90 days, however with an entry permit, it can be extended to 180 days. The Cedula de Extranjeria is a type of state identification, however the digital nomad visa permits remote workers to stay in the nation for up to 2 years. Some services, such as renting a house or getting a cellphone contract, require the usage of this permission. In the first 18 months, Colombia expects to lure 45,000 digital nomads.
