“Colombia is thrilled to share with digital nomads the privilege of working from the second most biodiverse country in the world,” Carmen Caballero, President of ProColombia, part of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism said in a statement.
“Bogotá, Medellín, Cartagena, Cali, the Coffee Landscape and other destinations offer a variety of coworking spaces and accommodations with specific programs developed for more extended stays where remote workers will have unforgettable experiences.”
To apply for Colombia’s digital nomad visa you’ll need a valid passport from a country on the list of those exempt from needing a short-stay visa, a letter proving your employment in your home country and health insurance. The minimum income requirement is 3 million Colombian pesos or €600 a month which can be proved using bank statements.
If your income is over this, you’re from a country that doesn’t require a short-stay visa to enter Colombia such as the US, Canada or the UK, and you only plan to stay for six months out of the year, you might not need even need to apply. You can stay for up to 90 days which can be extended to 180 without the paperwork with an Entry Permit.
