Visa information for foreign students

According to Decree 1067 of 26 May 2015 and Resolution 714 of 12 June 2015, issued by the Ministry of foreign affairs, foreign students who wish to study in Colombia must have a valid students or other type of visa. This must be presented to the Admissions Office (window 4) or sent by email to This procedure must be carried out before printing the enrolment fee receipt. In addition, current Colombian law requires that foreigners –under or over the age of 18- with a visa valid for over three months, must hold a foreign ID card. Students therefore have to comply by this requirement and can carry out the procedure at the same time as obtaining their visa.

Please remember to apply for your visa in plenty of time in order to avoid any hold-ups with regards the payment and registration of your enrolment at the University.
