Guyana, Colombia to commence visa waiver soon

Cabinet has granted approval for the relevant Government agencies to commence the necessary internal legal procedures to implement mutual exemption of the requirement of visas for persons travelling between Guyana and Colombia.

This was announced by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon during his post-Cabinet press briefing.

This agreement was signed on the sidelines of the Organization of American States’ (OAS’) General Assembly in Cancun, Mexico on June 21.

The Agreement will allow holders of ordinary passports to enter and stay in either territory of the two countries without a visa for a period not exceeding ninety (90) days. The stay would be renewable for an additional ninety (90) days, provided that the total length of stay does not exceed one hundred and eighty (180) days per year.

The conclusion of this Agreement signals a continuation of efforts to advance cooperation between the two countries, and the development of friendly relations between their peoples.
