I am traveling to Ecuador in July, and would love to spend a couple of weeks in Bogota on my way in or out, since it's where I am flying into anyway. However, I do need a visa for Colombia - and since I live in Macedonia, and don't have a Colombian embassy and/or consulate here, it seems like the easiest way to go for it would be to go for the e-visa.
I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with going through the process? On the official website, it says that once the e-visa has been approved, one still has to get a stamp in their passport - either in the Visa and Immigration Office in Bogota, or in the nearest consulate. I have a couple of questions:
Thank you in advance for your replies. Any extra info on this would be more than welcome :-)
All the best,
Sorry, no experience with the e-visa but I just wanted to say Colombia is one of my favourite countries in the Western Hemisphere, I'm sure you'll have a gas.
Bogota is a fabulous city, but if you have a whole two weeks don't spend the entire time in the city, there's an extensive internal bus system and domestic flights can be very inexpensive too.
