The Foreign ID Card or “Cédula de Extranjería", as it is typically known in Colombia, is the identification document for foreigners in the national territory issued by Migración Colombia. This document is issued to foreigners who are holders of a Colombian visa whose duration is greater than three months.
With the Cédula de Extranjería, you can access the health system, open bank accounts, obtain a driver’s license, among other benefits. But keep in mind that you should always use the ID card according to the activities allowed by your visa.
