New Humanitarian Flights to Colombia from August 2020

from August 1  to August 15, 2020

Colombia Coordinating Humanitarian Repatriation Flights For Citizens Stranded Abroad

Please note that we expect more flights to be posted for the final weeks of August. At this time we do not expect NORMAL COLOMBIAN international travel to resume in September. The government has not formally announced that it will accept flights in September. We believe if they do that this may occur on a limited basis, and will probably not include hotspots, such as the United States. Domestic flights inside Colombia are only occuring between two small cities at the moment. Currently all flights have a destination of Bogota!

All Colombians and foreigners with arriving on these flights must comply with the mandatory isolation measure in the city of Bogotá, under penalty of administrative and criminal sanctions for non-compliance. However, by contacting your local consulate you may discover direct flights to other cities. If you land in a city that is not your final destination then you must comply with mandatory isolation in that city. Most flights are landing directly in Bogota. You must comply with isolation in a hotel if you do not have a place to stay in Bogota. The authorities are asking for hotel information and license plate number for car that will pick you up at the airport. Migracion, Colombia will visit you in your place of mandatory isolation (quarantine). They are extremely serious if you are not found at the location designated. We also recommend that you have proof of how urgent your situation is to return to Colombia. Proof of rental contracts, or property ownership will help establish you have residency in Colombia. A well redacted letter explaining your situation to migracion Colombia is also recommended to ease entry into Colombia. The consulates are the first hurdle to clear as they will approve you for the flight. Once you arrive you will be questioned by migracion Colombia at the airport before being granted entry. (The USA is also running humanitarian flights on Spirit airlines from Colombia to the United States, please click here to see the information on Spirit flights leaving Colombia).

The international travelers who will arrive in the course of the next few weeks will do so from countries such as: Spain, United States, Mexico, Cuba, Belgium, Bolivia, among others.

The order of arrival of these flights, in accordance with what has been agreed with the National Government, will be as follows:

August 3: Miami

August 3: Cuba

August 4: Bolivia

August 5: Panamá

August 6: Dominican Republic
