ColombiaGringo posted Tourist Visas Running up end of June on the Colombia forum on May 21, 2015:
Most people already know but tourist visas are running up around the end of June or July for most who have been in Colombia since January. Take some time to study up on the different requirements and plan ahead. government computer crashes sometimes happen when we are most relying on them. If you need some free advice on what type of visa is best for you please post your questions here or send me a private message. The most popular RESIDENCY visas in Colombia are: Marriage Visa (or civil union) Pension Visa Education Visa Business Visitors visa Business Owner Visa Property Owner or Investors Visa Colombian Parent Visa Work Visas / ( a restricted visa) Annuity/Foreign Investor Visa Volunteer Visa Colombia charges roughly 150 dollars a month for every month you over stay a tourist visa. Count your days carefully because Colombia immigration will not let you leave or enter the country if your 1 day over. many people loose their flights because of this. Dont get stuck at the airport! Immigration is not to nice there. Call us direct in USA, COLOMBIA OR ON SKYPE: Cheers!!!

I have read a few boards but still am a little fuzzy in exact answers so I decided to ask them here. Am I correct to say that legally an american tourist is able to purchase a used vehicle in Columbia? Can travel with the vehicle throughout and when the final ownership documents are in my hands ship (if I decide to) overseas to USA this vehicle? My thought is if I am able to buy a vehicle I am able to do as I please with it. I have also read something about a c├ędula de extranjeria card. Isn't this card for someone who wants residency and if so...why would I need one to have if to buy a vehicle? Any help would be great. Thxs much, Dan

I do not understand why would a person want or need a credit card in Colombia with the high interest rates ?

Does anyone have any experience in driving FROM Colombia to places in the US ? I am most concerned about police or cartel interests in a Medellin plated car, as it travels on the Interstate. As well, any advice on the routing, through central america. thanks!
dandrie replied on May 19, 2015 with:
Just spoke with Ottawa... and they ONLY allow vehicles MORE THAN 15 yrs old to be imported... OR a NEW car, in a registered vehicle program.. etc etc etc..
dandrie replied on May 19, 2015 with:
In Canada... What if I can't import my vehicle? If you arrive at a CBSA office and your vehicle does not meet the requirements of both the CBSA and Transport Canada, you must either export or destroy your vehicle under the CBSA's supervision. You are responsible for all the related costs.

Does anyone have a mother living in Colombia with them? There must be some step moms of course being that plenty of expats are married to a Latina. Happy Mothers day to those who are there now! Seems to me from what I have been reading here that there are also some expats already married to a Latina but not living in Colombia yet. Can anyone tell me a little about how its going if your waiting to return to Colombia to live with your Latina and what are you waiting for. I want to marry and live in Colombia, I am also waiting here in the U.S.A. I was wondering why mother and fathers day wasn't set for the same day every year. Huh valid question.
Edwinjcb replied on May 16, 2015 with:
I totally agree. If you're going to visit a country, at least spend five minutes learning how to correctly spell the country name. Columbia University, with a "U." Colombia, with an "O." It's not rocket science to remember the difference.
Patricio replied on May 16, 2015 with:
What I find amusing are posters who talk about Colombia and yet cannot spell it, like NYPD, always explain how the keys on their device are defective, and funniest thing the keys always malfunction only on the second "O" in Colombia. And yes, I agree with the poster, people who can't spell a country's name correctly and also act as an authority lose credibility.

I am looking to move abroad to Colombia in the next few months. I have doing lot of research on relocating to Medellin. How are other areas such as Cali, and Cartagena? Are there a lot of young expats living in Colombia? Any advice?
Edwinjcb replied on May 16, 2015 with:
why are you moving? If you tell why, you'll get better answers, because some cities may be better than others, depending on what you wan to do.
Edwinjcb replied on May 16, 2015 with:
Forget Cali. It's a dirty, dangerous city. Medellin is much better
