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. You may learn more about these exams and how to schedule an appointment by clicking here.

- The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.
