Cabinet has granted approval for the relevant government agencies to commence the necessary internal legal procedures to implement mutual exemption of visas between Guyana and Columbia.

It will 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.
