The Colombian Government announced earlier this month that Venezuelan citizens may now enter, transit through, and depart Colombia with passports that expired up to 10 years prior to their desired entry/departure. They may also use expired passports to apply for all administrative procedures in Colombia, including obtaining work visas and temporary protected status (Estatuto Temporal de Protección al Migrante Venezolano). The Government also extended the deadline for foreigners to apply for foreign identification cards (Cédulas de Extranjería), register their visas with the Colombian immigration authorities, and request a Safe Conduct certificate to September 16, 2021.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
