Colombia to require vaccination certificates from November 16

You’ll now need to show a vaccination certificate to go to the pub or watch a football match in Colombia.

You’ll need to show a vaccination certificate to go to many public spaces in Colombia from November 16.

The government announced today that it will soon require vaccination certificates for people attending face-to-face events and activities in the country. Essentially, if you want to go to any activity where there’ll be lots of other people, you’ll need to show proof of vaccination — in either electronic or physical form.

This includes: Pubs, bars, cinemas, nightclubs, concerts, casinos, sports events, church services, museums, and theme parks. From November 16, anyone over the age of 18 will need to show their vaccination proof. And from November 30, the rules will apply to anyone over the age of 11.

The health minister, Fernando Ruiz Gómez said that the new measures are intended to reduce the risk of contagion. “A high proportion of the population is already vaccinated, but an unvaccinated part of the population remains, which ends up affecting and increasing the risk of contagion,” he said.

If you’re worried because you’ve only been able to get one dose so far, this shouldn’t be a problem. A certificate showing you’ve had one dose will do the trick.

If you got vaccinated in Colombia, in theory, you can download an electronic copy of your vaccination certificate from Mi Vacuna. Though it’s worth saying we couldn’t make it work.

If you got vaccinated abroad, there’s not yet any information about what proof will be accepted. But things will probably become clearer in the coming weeks.


  1. This is a bad idea. I travelled to Colombia from N. America because the vaccine made me sick and I don’t want to take more. The economy will be crushed here just like back home. We know Pfizer is pulling the strings, and their medicine only is food for 6 months and then doesn’t work.

  2. Pfizer has blackmailed Colombia into vaccination passports. Colombia do not give into Caucasus gringo tyranny. Why do you think people want to visit your country? Because they see your country as free from the plandemic!!! Pablo Escobar would turn his grave if he saw how Colombia has fallen to global tyranny
