Colombia has reopened its borders to international travelers.
On Sept. 19, international flights with the US, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Guatemala will be restarted. However, these flights will only be accessible in specific airports.
Beginning Sept 21, travelers from all countries are allowed to enter. Everyone must wear a protective face covering at all times. In addition, international travelers entering Colombia must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than four days prior to the travel date.
As of June 5, 2021, tourists are already allowed to enter Colombia without having to undergo Covid-19 testing or quarantine, and whether they have been vaccinated or not. Travelers will only need to fill out a health declaration form less than 24 hours before their flight to Colombia. They must declare that they are free from the Covid-19 virus and they have not been in close contact with anyone who tested positive for the virus.
Mask is required to be worn in all public indoor, public transport and certain outdoor areas where social distancing is not possible.
As of Feb. 5, local officials continue to enforce enhanced movement restrictions across several regions in addition to the government's overarching nationwide measures to combat the spread of coronavirus disease.
Officials in cities, municipalities, and departments are empowered to enforce stricter business and movement restrictions, depending on local disease activity. These could take the form of curfews, hard lockdowns, restrictions on business operating hours, and movement restrictions based on ID numbers.
Under the nationwide pandemic-related measures in place until Feb. 28, mass gatherings remain prohibited, nightclubs must remain closed, and the consumption of alcohol outside of private households remains banned. Gatherings of more than 50 people are banned.
Some businesses are allowed to open with capacity limits imposed by regional or local authorities. Employees must work from home as long as their physical presence is not fundamental for the operation of a business. Individuals must continue to wear facemasks in public spaces and adhere to physical-distancing and sanitization protocols.
In Bogota, officials significantly relaxed movement restrictions Feb. 3 with the lifting of the city's curfew orders and strict quarantine measures in localized high-risk zones. However, all nonessential establishments must close by 2300 and ID-based movement restrictions will remain in force.
Individuals may only attend to the acquisition and payment of goods and services according to the last number of the individual's document. Persons with ID numbers ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 are permitted on odd-numbered days, while ID numbers ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 are permitted on even-numbered days.
Localized curfew measures are likely to sporadically be enforced in other major cities and departments through at least early March. Officials have commonly tightened movement restrictions over weekend periods in several areas recently.
