Whether your studies are short or long, whether it is to learn a second language or study at a university, the authorities have put in place a series of requirements and measures that must be taken into account before traveling.

All Colombians interested in taking a course, even if it is short-term, must obtain a special visa for this purpose. What is recommended, according to Global Connection, is to take advantage of the permit known as F1, given to people who want to study or take English lessons full time.

Through a special form, the Embassy receives applications and selects the occasion for a 30-minute interview, during which the immigration officer checks the correctness of all requirements (registration, financial means for travel, availability).
