A few questions about Check-MIG

What is the Check-MIG and why is it compulsory to enter or leave Colombia?

Check-MIG is an online system developed by the Colombian government to manage and control the immigration process for all travellers entering or leaving Colombia. It is an administrative measure designed to simplify and secure travel formalities.

How and where can I fill in the Check-MIG form?

To complete the Check-MIG form, you need to visit the official Colombian immigration website or use their dedicated mobile application. The process is entirely digital and can be carried out from any device connected to the Internet. Once on the website or in the app, you'll find the option for the Check-MIG form, where you'll need to provide information such as your personal details, travel details and, depending on current requirements, possibly health information. It is important to complete this form at least 24 hours before your trip to comply with Colombian regulations. Make sure that all the information provided is accurate and complete to avoid any delays or problems when you arrive in Colombia or when you leave.

What information do I need to provide on the Check-MIG form?

On the Check-MIG form, you will need to provide a range of detailed information, which usually includes your personal details and details of your trip. Personal details include your full name, date of birth, nationality, passport or identity document number, and contact details (such as e-mail address and telephone number). As far as your travel details are concerned, you will need to indicate the dates of your arrival and departure, the flight number or information on the means of transport you are using to enter or leave Colombia, the address of your accommodation in the country, and the purpose of your visit (tourism, business, etc.). Depending on current public health requirements, additional information relating to your state of health or recent travel history may also be requested.

How far in advance of my trip should I complete the Check-MIG form?

The Check-MIG form must be completed at least 24 hours before you travel. This time is crucial to allow the Colombian authorities to process your information and ensure that everything is in order before your arrival or departure. It is advisable not to wait until the last minute to fill in the form, to avoid any stress or potential problems linked to delays in processing the data. Filling in the form in advance will ensure that your entry into or departure from Colombia goes as smoothly as possible, in compliance with all legal and administrative requirements.

What happens if I don't fill in the Check-MIG form or if I fill it in incorrectly?

If you don't fill in the Check-MIG form, or if you fill it in incorrectly, you could run into a number of problems. Firstly, the Colombian authorities may refuse you entry to the country or delay your departure. This can lead to major delays at the airport or other entry points, and in some cases you could even be sent back to your point of origin. In addition, incorrectly filling in the form may lead the authorities to carry out additional checks, which will prolong the immigration process.

Colombia

Colombia is a unitary republic in South America with a presidential regime. With more than 51 million inhabitants, it is the 28th most populous country in the world and the 2nd Spanish-speaking country after Mexico. With abundant natural resources such as oil, coal and coffee, Colombia is the 4th largest economy in Latin America. The country is geographically diverse, with coastlines on two oceans, Andean mountains, Amazonian forests and deserts. Despite historical challenges linked to internal conflicts, Colombia has become an important partner on the international stage, particularly in the areas of biodiversity and migration.

The best time to travel in Colombia is during the dry season, from December to March:

  • Temperatures are mild and pleasant, especially in the Andes, and there is little rain, except in Amazonia.
  • This is the peak tourist season, but it allows you to take full advantage of activities such as hiking, lounging on the beaches and eco-tourism.
  • The rainy season, from April to November, can make certain regions, such as the Amazon, more difficult to access.
  • Although the climate is fairly uniform throughout the year in Colombia, the dry season is generally considered the best time to visit most of the country.

To enter or leave the country, you will need to go through a compulsory Check-MIG formality that all travellers must complete. It has been introduced by the Colombian authorities to guarantee the health safety of travellers and the local population since the COVID-19 pandemic.

This form is fairly complex and has several sections where travellers have to provide specific information. Failure to comply with these requirements or providing inaccurate information may result in problems during the journey or on arrival in Colombia.
