Immigrant Visas


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.
