SPECIAL TEMPORARY PENSIONER’S VISA

 
This visa may be granted to a foreigner who receives a pension equivalent to no less than the equivalent of three (3) minimum legal monthly wages in force.
 
Requirements
 
• Present Form DP-FO-67 “Application for a visa” completely filled out and signed by the foreign applicant, not by an intermediary.


• Present a valid passport or travel document, in good condition and with a minimum of two (2) blank pages.

• Certification issued by a competent authority, government, public or private company or a foreign or Colombian entity to the effect that the foreign applicant for the visa receives a pension of not less that three (3) current minimum legal monthly wages, which, if sent from abroad must be authenticated by a Colombian consul or with an apostille, as the case may be. If the latter requirement for an apostille or legalization is not fulfilled, the diplomatic mission or consulate of the foreigner’s country or the place where he/she obtained the pension, accredited before the Colombian Government, may certify that the foreigner receives a pension from a public or private entity from that country of an amount not less than three (3) current minimum legal monthly wages.
Note: A beneficiary’s visa may be granted to the spouse, permanent partner, parents and children who are economically dependent upon the foreign temporary visa holder as a pensioner, following prior proof of the relationship or kinship. In such cases, the occupation of the beneficiary shall be that of looking after the home or a student.
