With the objective of encouring tourism to Colombia, the South American country has eliminated the visa requirement for Nicaraguan tourists.

By resolution 5622 de 2017, Colombia’s Cancillería (Foreign Ministry), eliminated the travel block. With this exemption, the number of countries without any formality for travel to Colombia is now at 92.

However, the Foreign Ministry clarified that the exemption will apply only to Nicaraguans who have a Schengen visa or the United States with a minimum validity of 180 days when entering Colombia.

Also, Colombia did not eliminate the cost of the permit of Nicaraguans enter to Colombia, which is US$10 dollars, which must be paid at the immigration checkpoint when entering the country.
