  1. Hi, I just need a list of requirements for a type M retirement visa. I have my Social Security letter showing $1142 per month government pension, passport, birth certificate, bank statement for however long they require, copies of my entry and exit stamps to Colombia. I own a vehicle here with valid license. What else?

  2. I am a Colombian citizen married to a US citizen and have 2 US kids under18. Can my wife enter Colombia with just the PCR test alone? We are leaving the US for good looking for a new country. It looks like the only people who can enter Colombia are R VISA holders and Colombians. Does anyone have any advice?
