      Hello Jeff,
      I have read your articles that you don’t believe the quarantine will be reimpose, yet all the people in Medellin that I know are telling me that they are hearing from the news that it will be reimpose. I was planning on travelling to Medellin next week, arriving on Thursday…but now I am scared that the quarantine will hit and I will have gone for nothing, since I will be trapped in the apartment without able to enjoy my vacation. Could you please let me know and advise if I should cancel the trip?
      Thank you!

        “On October 14, according to El Colombiano, Esteban Restrepo, Secretary of the Government of Medellín, said that for now the Mayor’s office does not contemplate new restrictions or closures, however, monitoring continues.

        Also, any measures may not be as severe as in the first three months of the pandemic, for example, 4 or 5 days of opening with 3 or 2 days of closings per week could be resumed.”

          I know I read it here that Colombia is requiring tourists to present Covid 19 test results when you arrive in the country and the tests need to be administered within 4 days of the arrival, yet the results are taking between 3-5 days to receive. Can you please explain what exactly is the policy, and if the results of my test have not yet been received when I arrive, what is most likely to happen? Thank you

          • Test needs to be within 96 hours of the departure your flight. Most airlines won’t let you board without a test and Colombia will send you home if you don’t have a test. They have sent back over 60 that arrived without a test.

          Hello Jeff,
          Do you know which exam for Covid 19 test Colombia is asking for? Is the nose swab fine? If done within 96 hours? I am having a hard time finding a place that gives the results right away…they take between 3-5 days and by then i will be heading out there.
          Thank you

          • Yes, it is a PCR test, not a rapid antibody test. You will have to search for a place that can do it rapidly. Thousands of tourists have come to Colombia already. So, they are finding places that can do in less than 96 hours. There are some listed in the comments in our article about international flights resuming – https://medellinguru.com/international-flights/

              Hi Jeff,

              Hope all is well. I have a trip to finally see my wife in Bucaramanga November 4, which is on a Wed. The labs that perform the tests are closed on Sundays, so I’m kind of in a time crunch for the results to be in hand by Tuesday evening before my early morning flight. I have found 15 minute “rapid PCR tests” available now. I am having trouble finding out if a “Rapid PCR” is accepted by the gov. Have you heard of these tests being rejected or accepted.

              Your thoughts?

              Thanks for all the hard work at Medallin Guru!

            • It has to be a PCR test (nose swab type test) not a rapid blood test.

      Thanks for the article. Nice to see that Colombia is reactivating tourism, as I plan to visit some pueblos near Medellin.
