Antigua eliminates tourist visas for Colombians

4

 Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Immigration Chet Greene has announced that Colombians will not need tourist visas for visits to Antigua and Barbuda up to 90 days.

The measure will go into effect once it goes through “the exchange of verbal notes”, according to a statement released on Tuesday.

The announcement followed a bilateral meeting with Colombia’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luz Stella Jara, and Minister Greene, who is in Bogotá to seek trade and investment opportunities for the twin-island nation.

During the meeting at the Palacio de San Carlos, topics such as trade, tourism opportunities, air connectivity between the two countries, and technical cooperation on agro-industry, disaster risk management, education, sports and safety, among others, were discussed.

Minister Greene was accompanied by a delegation of senior officials from the Government of Antigua and Barbuda who are responsible for international trade and tourism issues.

The Colombia delegation also included Director of America, Ambassador Francisco Javier Echeverri; Director of Immigration, Consular Affairs and Citizen Services, Ambassador Margarita Manjarrez; Director of Cultural Affairs, Santiago Jara; and representatives of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism.

  1. OMG. The Columbians allegedly already come here and leave their mark, if you know what I mean, via boats and flights during one day stays. They don’t want 90 days. Just 1. Hell, they never needed our permission. Now, we give them less red tape, assuming they go the legal route, to do so? SMH. This is a premature and potentially costly move.

  2. This country antigua is really going down the wrong road …also having an antiguan passport is nothing right now they just giving it away but soon it will come home to roost

  3. Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Immigration Chet Greene has announced that Colombians will not need tourist visas for visits to Antigua and Barbuda up to 90 days.so this means they have 90 days to come and visit with a visa????
