Mercosur Visa Temporarily Suspended for Chilean Nationals


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia has suspended the issuance of the Migrant Mercosur visa for Chilean nationals. This decision was made due to the failure to apply the principle of reciprocity present in this type of visa, because Mercosur visa is not being issued for Colombian nationals in Chile.

It is important to note that those Chilean nationals who are in the process of issuing a Mercosur visa and maintain the need to enter Colombia, must reevaluate the existing migratory alternatives to proceed with the request for a different type of visa in order to enter and remain in the country on a regular migratory status.

However, the foregoing, those foreign nationals who still hold a visa of this category, its validity will be respected and should not make any changes at this time.

We will keep you informed of any progress on this matter and if you need assistance from us, please contact the members of the Tannus & Asociados team.
