How to travel without a visa in Colombia
Colombia has issued travel restrictions to residents of the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Norway and Iceland.
The move comes in the wake of a series of terrorist attacks on American soil and the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
Colombia said it will ban American travelers and visitors from those countries from the next three days.
The US has suspended travel to and from the country and will maintain travel restrictions for three weeks after the suspension.
Americans will not be able to travel to any of the following countries:Canada, New York, United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark, Canada or Hong Kong.
The US also will maintain restrictions on visits to any tourist areas in Colombia, including the Bogota International Airport, the Cancun International Airport and other nearby hotels.
Those who are not US citizens or have entered the country without a valid visa will be unable to enter the country.
It is not clear if any Americans will be affected by the ban.
Colubrian authorities have been issuing travel bans to citizens of the European countries since November, when a gunman shot dead three people at a nightclub in the capital, Bogota.
In the weeks since the shooting, authorities have stopped the travel of many tourists, including American and Canadian nationals.
The United States is the third-largest source of foreign direct investment for Colombia, after China and Russia.
The United States imposed travel restrictions in March on Americans and other citizens of nine other countries: Canada, Chile, Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan, Tunisia, Venezuela and the UK.
