Colombia temporarily shuts down online visa application platform

The Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently announced that foreign nationals will not be able to submit Migrant Student, Religious, Spouse, Resident Colombian National Parent and Resident Investor Visa applications between 17 September 2022 and 20 October 2022 as it temporarily shut down its online visa portal. The online portal will also close for all other visa applications (i.e., Migrant Work Visa, Dependents Visas, Migrant Mercosur Visa, Resident Visa for Accumulated Time of Permanence, Visitor Visa for Temporary Services) on 1 October 2022, and it is not yet known when it will be reopened for these visa applications.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
