Flying from COLOMBIA Friday

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

After years of waiting, my 19 year old sister and 3year old nephew are coming to the US this Saturday. They are going from Cali to Bogota via LAN, then Delta from Bogota to JFK, then to Chicago, QUESTION: Is there a tax that they will have to pay to leave bogota??? anything else I should anticipate.

Thanks,

Karen

Congrats! All fees should have been charged when you bought the ticket. they will ask her to go to her ticket stamped with an "tax exemption" stamp

There is a window across from the check in counters in Bogota, I cannot for the life of me remember the number. but it is pretty much in front of the AA check in. She can go there and get her passport stamped. I don't know if she can get it done in Cali but she will need to check in at the Delta desk in Bogota anyway so it is right there.

Congrats, and forgive me if i am reading your post wrong, your family members are colombian correct? if this is correct there is no need for a stamp on their passport, because they arent visitors to colombia.
