Proof of Relationship for USA and Colombian Marriage Visas


Historically documentation for the proof of relationship between two persons is the largest part of a visa application for the United States Marriage or Fiancee visa applications. Recently, during the last few years Colombia followed the United States and other countries asking for documentation which shows persons indeed have a relationship together.

Colombia currently in 2024, is limiting applications to 35 pages so you must plan which documents you believe help your application the most. Below are many examples of the types of documents we have found help our clients the most when proving a relationship is real and currently active.
