    Hi, I'm a Male British National and i'm looking to marry my Colombian girlfriend in her home city of Barranquilla in January 2007, i understand that although normally i wouldn't need a visa to travel there, if we want to marry then i would need to apply for some kind of visa and also take with me various documents and paper work, if anyone has any idea or advice about this it would be most appreciated, i'm aware that i need to start organizing any paperwork ASAP.
