COLOMBIA – TP-4 Visa Applications to Require Local Contract or Service Agreement

The TP-4 Visa is issued to foreign nationals that are entering Colombia due to an employment relationship, contract, or service agreement with a Colombian company, organization, or individual. In 2013, a decree was issued that stated all foreign employees must have a local contract or service agreement; however, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not begin strictly enforcing this rule until recently. As part of an ongoing enforcement, applications must be accompanied with proper documentation evidencing local contract or service agreement with the Colombian sponsor. Otherwise, applications may be delayed or simply rejected.
