Advice for travelling to Colombia

Entry - British nationals can enter Colombia for 90 days for tourism purposes without a visa. You will receive an entry stamp in your passport upon arrival.

Medical - Holiday Extras travel insurance provides cover for pre-existing medical conditions, so check with your GP for any conditions prior to leaving and ensure that you declare these to us. Certain immunisations are recommended, like Yellow Fever and Typhoid. Our medical cover does not cover for illnesses if the correct immunisations were not administered.

Safety - Tourist security in Colombia has improved hugely in recent years, but it is still advisable to keep your belongings close to hand, particularly in busy city areas.
