What is the validity of the digital nomad visa?
According to Resolution 5477, the validity of this visa can be up to two years; however, the visas we have approved have been for one year, and until now, the visas do not include any restriction on the label.
We take this opportunity to remind our expat community that although through social networks and on some websites, it has been said that a foreigner with a digital nomad visa can only stay 180 days a year in Colombia, in reality, this is not true. Foreigners who get their nomad visas may stay in the country as long as they wish, even staying in the country for a full-time authorized visa. According to the resolution, this is a category V visa with multiple authorized entries and exits and no stay restrictions.
What should I keep in mind for a successful application?
We recommend that the documents that are issued abroad have the complete legalization chain to avoid delays in the process, that is to say, that they are updated, signed, authenticated, apostilled, and finally translated into Spanish in case they are in another language because although it is not required from the beginning of the process, the Colombian government may require it, besides this is a factor that can contribute to the probability of success.
On the other hand, if you are in Colombia, we also suggest starting the process with time, at least two months before your stay in the country expires. The above since the government’s response may sometimes take even more than 30 days, there may be requirements involving the need for apostille of foreign documents, which could extend the time of the process, so it is essential to avoid illegal stay.
