The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued on December 2018, Resolution 10677 of 2018, in order to establish a new term to access to the special residence permit (PEP) for Venezuelan nationals.
In order to obtain the PEP, Venezuelan nationals must comply with the requirements established in Resolution 5797 of 2017 and be in Colombian territory on December 17, 2018. The deadline for requesting the special permit will be four (4) months counted from the date of publication of Resolution 11677. The procedures, requirements for the access and use of the special permit, continue in force.
It should be noted that those Venezuelans who have been issued special residence permit (PEP) prior to this extension, or those who hold the special permit for permanence issued by reason of the Administrative Registry of Venezuelan Migrants (PEP-RAMV), may not apply for a new Special Permit of Permanence.
