Updated on October 16, 2020: Mandatory international medical insurance for new visas

At this crisis time, in which everyone has a great concern for HEALTH, the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores has activated a new requirement for visa applications. This requirement corresponds to the certification of HEALTH INSURANCE with international coverage.

Minimum coverage for each type of visa:
Visitor Visa V Type: 60.000 USD o Euros 
Migrant Visa M Type: 60.000 100.000 USD o Euros 
Resident Visa R Type: 100.000 USD o Euros 

According to your specific needs, age, coverage, and duration of the health insurance you choose, the cost of the health insurance may range from approximately $ 100 USD to $ 1,100 USD.

With this measure, the Colombian government seeks to guarantee that foreigners have medical assistance while they are in Colombia as tourists and in favor of obtaining a long-stay visa, in case they have any health problem.

It is important to keep in mind that the duration of visas is being related in most cases to the validity time of the policy or health insurance that is attached to the visa application. Therefore, most visas will be issued with a maximum duration of one year, which is the usual time of coverage of health insurance.

Now, to meet this need, has the first-class alliance with Continental Assist.
