Get CEDULA and be Colombian

Cedula is ID in Colombia and you’ll be required to show in many occasions. Convenient, if you stay longer here. 

Necessary Documents:

  1. Application form (Take it from booth of first floor. You may have time to fill while you are in line:))
  2. Passport
  3. Passport copy: Main page
  4. Passport copy: Visa page

Place: 27, Ac. 100 #11, Bogotá

Cancillería Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

Headed right after obtaining visa, it’s about 15 mins on foot. Similar to visa process, I waited an hour until submitting the required documents at first floor and again an hour until my name called to complete payment. Payment can be made either cash or credit card.

Note: Cedula can be issued after you obtained visa. Plus, they ask you + or – of your blood type as it displays in cedula, with big presence. Yo, I’m +.

WHO knows + or -. 29 years of my life in Japan and other countries, I’ve never been conscious about it. Insisted I DON’T KNOW but they don’t give a sht. Simply they wanna hear your saying. I guessed that time and later I found that was right, anyway.

Cedula will be ready after 5 working days, not 2 or 3 as I saw in somebody blog. For those inpatient guy, satisfy yourself checking here whether yours is ready or not, just in case. Good luck.
