    FL, Just an update. I sent them an email with a question the day after our posts and still haven't gotten a reply. Seems a bit too slow. I'll give them a call and see what happens. Prices are reasonable as you said. CL.

    Vaccination card verification

    Just a thought. How is everyone verifying these vaccination cards? Understandable if its an obvious fake. Yet, what if you had an actual vaccination card that was filled out but never actually took the shot?

    I could not fill the form from my computer. The staff at the check-in desk told me to do it on my smartphone. It is a common issue. Also don't expect to USA in the drop-down menu it will Estados Unidos. 2 cents.

    Thanks Fun Luvr, this is just what I was looking for. Better to have it and not need it then the other way around.

Any of you guys have purchased a policy lately and can you give me a name of the company? Thanks! I did a search already and no answers my first time then tried new words but it tells me to wait and try again. I'll be searching all day.

    COVID traveler's insurance

    Johnson & Johnson Vaccine?

    Hey guys,

    Quick question. I got the J&J vaccine back in June. It was only one shot as you may know, so there was no need for a 2nd. I have my vaccination card as well, will I have any trouble getting into Colombia?

    Accidently Deleted a post by Mateocast when I went to respond

    Title: Travel within the last week.

    "Did anyone have any trouble traveling to Colombia with just full vaccination and the card. I had a family friend who was denied boarding on a flight do to lack of pcr even tho they were fully vaccinated. They had to get the pcr and wait a few days. Not sure what happened. Has anyone traveled in the past week?

    First I want to apologize to Mateocast98 - the "resond with quote" and "delete" buttons are next to each other and once I accidently delete a post there is no "undo" option. So I wend back using ther browser "back" button and copied and pasted the text and labeling of your post.

    Can you be sure that it had been 14 days since their last shot; the instructions on the embassy web site read as follows:

    For non-resident foreign travelers 18 years and older:

    Vaccinated non-resident foreign travelers must present proof they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for at least 14 days prior to travel.

    If less than 14 days have elapsed or if the vaccination scheme is not complete, the traveler must present a PCR test with a negative result taken within 72 hours of boarding.

    Unvaccinated non-resident foreign travelers will not be allowed to enter Colombia.

    I also think this is what it said. The exception for non-vaccinated or those with less than 14 days since the second shot is only for Colombian residents and citizens, not for tourists. They can still get back in, or back home you might say, with the PCR test.

    Which makes their policy almost exactly the same as the US. Anyone who is not a citizen or legal resident of US cannot fly in to the US without being fully vaccinated.

    Traveler's Checklist.

    Fill out the online pre-registration Migracion Colombia form called CheckMiG. Travelers will have to add all of the relevant information about their trip to the form, including how you will be traveling (air, land, sea) and your point of entry.

    https://apps.migracioncolombia.gov.c...reregistro.jsf

    The immigration form can be filled out 48 hours before your flight and up to one hour before the flight closes, according to the official website.

    Show proof of full vaccination against Covid-19, with the last dose being administered at least 14 days before departure. According to the official Colombian government website, either paper or digital form works as proof.

    Any traveler to Colombia that can't show proof of being full vaccinated, or 14 days has not yet passed since the final dose, they'll be required to provide a negative PCR test result for Covid, taken no later than 72 prior to departure. All documents for entry to Colombia must be provided at the airport pre-departure.

    Booster

    Quote Originally Posted by MojoBandit  [View Original Post]
    I do not understand your question. As I understand it the definition of a "booster" is the shot one takes after they have already taken the initial vaccine. The first vaccine initates an antibody defense against the virus and the "booster" boosts the antibodies even further. So by definition one has to be vaccianted in order to get a "booster" otherwise you are just getting a shot.

    So then If you got your vaccine - then got this "booster" then by defintion you were vaccinated already before you got your booster - since the booster is not what is currently required it is not really even relative to whether you are considered vaccinated for purposes of traveling

    Does that make sense to you? Because the way you write this it almost sounds like you only got one shot
    Hey Mojo,

    Yeah thanks for the clarification, that makes sense. I am fully vaccinated and was thinking about getting the booster but may not be able to 2 weeks before my trip. I realize I was not very clear in my question, my be. Thanks for the info tho!

    Here is the announcement in the US Embassy Colombia

    https://co.usembassy.gov/health-aler...ents-colombia/

    For non-resident foreign travelers 18 years and older:

    Vaccinated non-resident foreign travelers must present proof they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for at least 14 days prior to travel.

    If less than 14 days have elapsed or if the vaccination scheme is not complete, the traveler must present a PCR test with a negative result taken within 72 hours of boarding.

    Unvaccinated non-resident foreign travelers will not be allowed to enter Colombia.

    For the record and some people seem genuinely confused. When they say "fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for at least 14 days prior to travel" it means that one has had the last dose of a two shot vaccine administered 14 days or more prior. Johnson & Johnson is one shot so 14 days after you would be considered good to go.

    Even Colombian Govt may not know what it means, LOL.

    To me the term "at least" in this case could indicate both way- before or after the 14th day prior to flight. It is surprising that a competent and well-reputed govt like Colombian govt issues such a fuzzy statement.

    Quote Originally Posted by MojoBandit  [View Original Post]

    It means the 2nd shot a minimum of 14 days before trave for sure.
