Medical tourists can return to Columbia


Most medical tourists to Columbia are from the Dutch Caribbean islands (Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, St Maarten), the USA, Venezuela, Panama and Ecuador. Many of those coming from the USA are Colombian expatriates or their descendants. The most popular treatment in Columbia is cosmetic surgery.

Normal visa requirements are still in place, but Colombia has 100 countries that can visit visa-free, including Canada, USA, UK, Australia, and all of the EU.

All passengers into Colombia are required to bring proof of a negative PCR test, taken no longer than 96 hours prior to departure. All arrivals undergo a health screening, which includes temperature scans.

Colombia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that international health insurance is necessary, to avoid burdening the health system.
