Colombia Migration (Spanish: Migración Colombia) is Colombia's border control agency responsible for monitoring and conducting migratory control within the framework of national sovereignty and in accordance with the law.[3]


After the dissolution of the Administrative Department of Security, which was also in charge of migratory services, the Colombian Government, under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, created Migración Colombia in order to carry out border control and migration enforcement tasks. Customs formalities are carried out by the National Directorate of Taxes and Customs, a separate agency under the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit.
