Living in Colombia can be a desirable alternative for foreigners, a paradise where the climate, the food, and the people come together to make your experience memorable and feel at home.

Visas to fulfill your dreams

Colombia, particularly Medellin, is a popular destination for expats seeking a high quality of life, affordable prices, warm climate, and various tourist attractions. As a result, long-term visas for staying legally in Colombia are in high demand among foreigners.

However, understanding Colombian laws can be difficult, especially if you don’t speak Spanish and keep up with the constantly changing regulations. Fortunately, expatgroup.co is here to help. 

They stay up-to-date on the latest rules and provide excellent service and quality throughout the visa application process, as reported by satisfied clients like Joseph Manier, who obtained his digital nomad visa through expatgroup.co.

I haven't seen at many other places here in Colombia where somebody's willing to take the initiative to actually lead the way in terms of the interaction. Usually I find myself pushing things forward and regardless of whatever it is I do. And it's my application, so I have no problem with that, but I think the great thing about them is that they took the lead in that continuously for several months to have the long-awaited time for the approval of my Nomad visa. So I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking to apply for a digital Nomad Visa. I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised just because of how organized they are really that's that's the main thing.

A union between expatgroup.co and Medellin Guru

Within this story, there is an important chapter to highlight, and for this, we have to travel in time to the year 2017 when the founder of this portal, Jeff Paschke, always had as main objective to provide useful and truthful information to its readers, to those who were looking to travel or live in Colombia.

Throughout this process, hundreds of readers were conquered by the experiences that Jeff recounted in his different blogs, where sometimes, he told about the restaurants he liked the most in the city; he also recommended his favorite tourist attractions in Colombia or even how they could buy and sell houses in the national territory. 

These experiences told in hundreds of blogs made the interest of foreigners in living in Colombia increasingly large, thus achieving many comments coming to the portal from foreigners from different countries of the world. However, not all knew how to live legally in the country.

Jeff decided to work with expatgroup.co that year to inform his readers about immigration regulations, visas, and legal issues for expats, and little by little, these blogs about visas began to take more and more strength and prominence in our portal. Thus, in March 2019, a strategic alliance was established between the two organizations, which is still in place.

This alliance has continued over the years because our readers’ excellent figures and testimonials attest to the seriousness and professionalism with which expatgroup.co treats its clients.
