Visa Approved! Now the wait?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Finally my husband received approval for the immigration visa. But the consul told him that this type of visa would take 3 weeks for delivery, and that he will receive an email when the visa is ready for pick up. Is this correct? How long is the usual dilevery? and is his visa different than others? Also he didnt receive any paper saying visa was approved but the consulate did indeed keep his passport, is this normal?

We already signed up for the DHL delivery, so we are just waiting for their email!

Congratulations!

It is normal for them to take the passport... Delivery generally takes a few days.

Yes, this is normal, some people get a tiny piece of paper that says they were approved and others don't. If the visa is to be delivered in Bogotá, it can take between 2-3 business days, and 6-10 days outside of Bogotá.

You can find more info about this as well as POE and post visa approval information in the Colombia Club Part IV thread that is located in the Latin American forum.
