Instructions for Voluntary Departures or Deportees
Deportees and people requiring departure verification may come to the Consular section any working day between Monday and Thursday at 9 AM. It is not necessary to schedule an appointment. Please use the entrance for visa applicants.
1. Please bring 2 photocopies of the following documents.
- ONE of the following DHS/ICE forms:
- I-392 Notification of Departure of Alien (Bonded)
- I-294 Warrant of Deportation
- G-146 Voluntary Departure form
- Any U.S. Government form or document requesting verification of your departure from the United States.
- b. Proof of travel dates:
- Plane ticket or boarding pass for your flight departing the United States.
- 2. One photograph: in color, white background, 2 x 2 inches.
- 3. The passport you used to enter and exit the United States and 3 photocopies of the following pages of your passport: 1) the back cover (where it shows a red number), 2) Biographic page, 3) pages showing entry/exit stamps and visas.
- There is no cost for this processing.
- As part of this processing you will receive a copy of the documents you presented to the Embassy.
- If you paid a bond in the United States, you must wait for the original G-146/I-392/I-94 form to be processed by the Department of Homeland Security in the U.S. (the average time is three to six months).
- At that point, if you have questions, do not contact the Embassy, but rather the U.S. Department of Homeland Security office where the bond was posted.
- Do not write to the Consular section to notify the Embassy of your departure – this will not be considered a valid notification of your departure since you must present in-person
- This interview does not serve as a visa application; its sole purpose is for you to present before a U.S. Government official to verify your presence in Colombia.
YOU must bring ALL THE ABOVE DOCUMENTS TO be interviewed at THE EMBASSY. If you have issues gathering these documents, please write to NIVbogota@state.gov before coming to the Embassy.
