V - Medical Treatments Visa

Among the Colombian Visa Types, the Medical Treatments Visa is specified for those who require medical treatment in the country. 

If you’re looking to get high quality medical care at lower cost, the Medical Treatment Visitor visa may be the visa for you. 

The V Medical Treatments visa is granted to those whose time of the mentioned treatment procedure or procedures are specifically not doable within the time of the regular entry permit. In other words, this is for patients who need to stay in Colombian territory for recovery purposes for more than 6 months after the procedure.

It is very likely that medical treatments in your country of origin may be expensive, such as esthetic surgeries or even dentist appointments.

However, in Colombia, you can pay way less for top health medical care. Nevertheless, we advise you to conduct your proper research and get informed with the relevant authorities regarding the matter, as medical procedures could still have some risk level.

If it seems too cheap to be true in comparison to other local companies, it might be best to avoid.
