Colombia is among the top tourist destinations in Latin America and is rapidly gaining a reputation as a popular medical tourism destination among people from North American, South American and European countries.
The government of Colombia requires foreigners to obtain a visa before entering their territory. Legal and valid citizens of the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Canada do not require a visa to enter the country and can stay here for a period of 90 days. Other countries that are exempt from visa requirements to enter Colombia include Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Peru, South Korea, Spain and Venezuela.
Though there is no separate medical visa available, people traveling to Colombia for healthcare can do so with a tourist visa that is usually valid for a period of 90 days. The visas are issued and handled by the immigration department of Colombia.
