Colombian Marriage Visa
The duration of the Colombia Marriage Visa, technically known as TP-10, is up to 3 years. A common law partnership usually receives a visa for only 1 year, but this varies depending on the officer’s decision, on where you apply and on your luck. Over the recent years the Ministry of Foreign Affairs required all newly married persons applying for a Colombian Marriage Visa to go to Bogota for an interview, however in 2015 very few of our clients have had to go to Bogota to apply for the Colombian marriage visa.
