Welcome to the Immigrant Visa Unit of the U.S. Embassy in Colombia. Our office adjudicates all categories of U.S. immigrant visas including but not limited to family-based, immediate relatives, and adoptions.
We encourage applicants to learn as much as they can about the laws, regulations and policies involved in processing an immigrant visa application. These web pages are designed to help you understand the process and come to the visa interview prepared.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
- Interviews: All interviews take place at the U.S. Embassy Bogota – Calle 24 Bis No. 48-50, Bogota, D.C. Colombia
- Medical Exams: All immigrant visa cases require certified medical exams by a panel physician who is approved by the U.S. Department of State.
Due to a consular systems upgrade, consular operations at the U.S. Embassy Bogota will be closed to the public on Friday, October 9 with the exception of emergency passport issuance to U.S. citizens. For U.S. citizen emergency travel, please look at the instructions on requesting an emergency appointment here http://bogota.usembassy.gov/emergencies.html, or contact us directly at (57) 1 275 2000. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you are required to renew your Colombian passport that contains a U.S. visa, you do NOT have to apply for another visa. You should travel with both passports, the passport with your valid visa, and the machine-readable passport.
