"I was so lucky that a friend told me about InterNations before I came to Bogota. I had the chance to contact many expats there from home."

Welcome to the Expat Colombia Chapter!

¡Hola! and a warm welcome to InterNations Colombia! Our network for expats in Colombia is tailored to your particular needs and helps you with moving to and settling in Colombia. Relocating overseas to a foreign country is adventurous and also challenging now and then. For expatriates Colombia a lot of questions come up such as: ʺHow good is the health care system in Colombia and do I need special vaccinations?ʺ, ʺIn which district should we live when moving to Calí?ʺ or ʺHow about the overall safety in Bogotá?ʺ And many more questions…

InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the Colombia expat community and discovering the Colombian way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional bandeja paisa to celebrating Battle of Boyacá's Day.

We are present not only in Colombia, but worldwide including numerous countries in North & South America – for instance our chapter for Expatriate China. You might also consider to stop by at our Expatriates Bahrain community during your next travel.

Embark on Colombia Expats Life

From the historical La Candelaria neighbourhood to Ciudad Perdida in the jungle, Colombia has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat Colombia community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the mining sector, and the urban development in Bogotá and Barranquilla. Expat living in Colombia surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
