IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
You must have a valid passport that does not expire within 6 months of the last day of the trip.
You may choose to get vaccinations. The CDC recommends that all travelers to Colombia be up to date on all of their routine vaccines. In addition to routine vaccines, the CDC recommends that travelers receive Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, rabies, and typhoid vaccines. These are not required, but they are recommended and the individual choice of the traveler.
You must arrive in the country on the first day of the trip. Arrival times may vary, but everyone must arrive on the first day, so plan your flights accordingly.
You will be required to buy travel health insurance. While we don’t anticipate having to use it, in the case of illness or injury, health insurance to cover the cost of your hospital or clinic visit will be needed. Some of the insurance offered by airlines when you buy your plane tickets will include a health insurance component. If this is the case, this insurance will suffice. The cost of international health insurance averages around $15 when bought separately.
