    Hello and welcome!

    Getting married can be a joyous occasion, but all the paperwork of marrying abroad can take some of the fun out of it. We would like to invite people who have been married in Colombia to share their advice.

    What do you wish you had known? What is the procedure to get married in Colombia? How much does it cost? Do you need a special visa, permit, or documentation? How far in advance do you need to plan? How expensive is it?

    Is the process the same for locals as it is for expats? What about a mixed partnership (between a foreigner and a native)? Do you need to send documentation back to your country?

    What customs should you expect? Is there a certain style of dress you need to wear? What about for guests? What kind of gift-giving is expected?

    Also share your questions if you are preparing to marry abroad or your experiences if you have attended a wedding in Colombia.

    Congratulations to all of our engaged couples or recently married and thanks for sharing your stories. :D

    Colombia resident visa civil partnership

    I am new to Easy Expat Forum.

    I am moving to Colombia and would like to know a few things to help assist in getting things sorted before I leave the UK and ready for my new life in Colombia.
    I need help with “Colombia resident visa civil partnership”

    1. I am looking at having a marital status certificate saying I am not married in Spanish with APOSTILLE printed on the certificate to take to Colombia with me.
    Has anyone used http://www.apostille.org.uk/, services or know of a way to get this certificate?
