The program will start on July 10th in the morning, so we advise everyone to arrive the previous day. Arrangements will be made for other transportation to Santander. We should be back in Bogotá on the afternoon of the 17th.
You'll need a valid passport (with at least six more months of validity) and some nationalities will need a visa. Travelers receive a 90-day tourist visa, which can be extended another 90 days per calendar year.
When arriving by plane (but not overland), you'll be given a customs form which you'll need to fill in and hand it to the official after reclaiming your baggage.
Nationals of many countries, including Western Europe, the Americas, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, don't need a visa. Some foreign nationals can expect a nominal fee.
While healthcare in Colombia is fairly affordable, we recommend all to get a good travel insurance. All participants are responsible for their own insurance including travel and health insurance. All participants also need to ensure that any equipment and valuable items such as laptops are covered by their own insurance as the WII cannot take responsibility for items lost or stolen.
