Do you want to work as a Digital Nomad from Colombia?

Would you like to work in Colombia as a Digital Nomad? Here we’ll advise you on how to get started.

The massive number of tourists you see in the most valued areas of your country is no coincidence. In this article, we’ll tell you the secret to enjoy a paradisiacal life while you work. Because in the world in which we live now, offices with beach posters are coming to an end, now you can have them in front of you while you work. 

You’ve probably heard the word “coworking” from the tourists you regularly see making video calls from coffee bars. Maybe your cousin, the one who studied programming, has also told you that he is preparing himself on Duolingo because he wants to visit France and stay there for a few months. Welcome to the wonders of the new world, do you want to be part of it? 

Become a digital nomad.

Since the pandemic, virtual jobs have been the protagonist of our lives. Now you can travel and work simultaneously from wherever you want. No more endless commuting to get to your office, and holding your coffee without grace. You can radically turn your life around with a digital nomad visa. This will allow you to stay longer in the countries of your dreams, clearly, with the blessing of the corresponding government.

Several nations around the world are showing off their Country Brand developments so that people, like your cousin, can work while enjoying the tourist sites, the gastronomy, the language, and many times, finding the love of their life.

The outgoing Government of Colombia left all the records ready for citizens who have passports exempt from short-term visas, according to the National Chancellery, together with a joint work of ProColombia, an entity that has worked for the image of our country in the world.

According to the president of ProColombia, Flavia Santoro, in Forbes magazine: “Colombia is an ideal destination for digital nomads, a segment of tourism that has been growing in recent years. Our country, in addition to its strategic geographical location and its proximity to the main capitals of the region, offers advantages that match the interests of this profile of travelers: competitive prices and diversity of particular experiences associated with the destinations”

Now, are you ready to taste the best green coffee in the world and travel our seas?

Here are 6 recommendations for you to have this Visa V Digital Nomads without complications, according to the Foreign Ministry:

1. Be the holder of a passport issued by one of the countries or territories exempt from a short-stay visa, according to the Resolution.

2. A letter in Spanish or English, issued by one or more foreign companies for which the applicant provides services abroad, indicating the type of relationship and the type of remuneration received by the applicant.

3. If you have a contract with such company, you must prove it at the time of applying for the visa, or if you are a partner or co-owner of a company abroad, you must submit a letter indicating that your work for the company is performed remotely. 

4. In the case of entrepreneurs, you must submit a motivational letter explaining your entrepreneurial project and the financial and human resources you have or aspire to have for your venture.

5. Demonstrate through bank statements a minimum income equivalent to three (3) Current Minimum Legal Monthly Wages in Force (SMLMV) during the last 3 months.

6. Health policy with coverage in the national territory against all risks in case of accident, illness, maternity, disability, hospitalization, death or repatriation, for the time foreseen for your stay in the country.

Now, let’s talk about money

In order for you to enjoy our country, you will have to pay 52 USD (visa study) + from 170 USD – 230 USD (the latter is the issuance fee, once this document is approved).

Well, that’s all right. As you know everything has its end. But, you may be asking yourself “how long can I stay here?” 

You will be able to stay in Colombia for about two years, enough to travel around the country if you want!
