Travel Information / Other Resources

All U.S. Government-published travel information about Colombia is available below. Travelers frequently ask the Embassy for more specific guidance, including whether a particular place in Colombia will be safe for U.S. citizens at a particular time. The Embassy does not provide this kind of tailored advice. You are encouraged to carefully consider the U.S. Government’s published travel information, and to conduct your own independent research, including speaking to those who will host you, before making a decision about your travel.

The Embassy will occasionally send out “Messages for U.S. Citizens in Colombia” regarding important information about events taking place in-country. To receive these messages by email, please register with the Embassy online. You can view previous messages for U.S. Citizens by clicking here.
