U.S. Citizen Services
Due to a planned strike by immigration workers, beginning the evening of December 18, 2014 and until further notice, travelers should expect significant delays clearing migration when both departing and entering Colombia through the El Dorado International Airport (BOG). Airport officials advise international travelers to arrive four hours ahead of flights. Travelers should stay in close contact with their airline and monitor local news outlets regarding this still-developing situation.
The American Citizen Services office at the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá and the U.S. Consular Agency in Barranquilla both provide assistance to U.S. citizens in Colombia.
