STEP 2: COLOMBIAN VISAS, AUTHORIZATION, AND INVITE LETTER
Most countries in the Americas are not required to present a VISA upon entering Colombia. Please check the official VISA list HERE based on the nationality of your students.
Minors must have parent permission to leave their own country and enter into Colombia. Some requirements may include an apostilled parent permission from a notary, copy of birth certificate, proof of return flight, travel dates, hotel info, event info, and advisor information. Please check with local immigration authorities about specific requirements. Please see link of sample Parent Authorization Letter CLICK HERE.
Each school should carry a copy of the conference invitation in order to facilitate entry into Colombia. Download and edit this generic invitation CLICK HERE.
STEP 3: IMMUNIZATIONS
No specific vaccinations, including Yellow Fever, are required to enter Colombia, however, your home country may require proof of vaccination in order to re-enter your country. Please check the CDC WEBSITE for specific information about your country.
STEP 4: RESERVE YOUR HOTEL ROOMS
Two hotels have offered group rates to accommodate conference participants, Estelar Milla de Oro and Estelar Blue. Check the hotel tabs on the drop down menu to view hotel options and prices, which are quoted in Colombian pesos.
Any school can choose to reserve at either hotel based on preference, however, it is recommended to reserve at Estelar Milla de Oro due to its larger capacity and amenities. This hotel will accept reservations until there is no more availability, at which point, Estelar Blue will be the alternative. We cannot guarantee availability at either hotel, so please reserve promptly.
Both hotels are located within walking distance of each other.
