The Colombian government has confirmed that a COVID-19 test is no longer required to enter the country.

Key Points:

  • Travelers entering Colombia by air will no longer need to be tested for COVID-19 before their arrival.
  • Travelers still need to complete a Check-Mig form in the Check-Mig App.
  • Any COVID-19 symptoms must be reported to Colombian authorities, and travelers must wear masks and engage in other preventative measures.
  • Dropping the testing requirement is part of PRASS (Pruebas, Rastreos y Aislamiento Selectivo Sostenible), the testing, tracking and selective isolation national initiative. As part of this initiative, the National Tracking Contact Center will work with each traveler to identify COVID-19 symptoms after their arrival.

Background: Colombia had been under national lockdown since March. The lockdown was lifted in October, and international air travel resumed in September.

Analysis & Comments: The waiver of the testing requirement will ease entry requirements for foreign nationals, but travelers must make sure they are following other COVID-19 health protocols. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
