Import licensing requirement

On 1 April 2013, Colombia's Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism (Ministerio de Comercio, Industria y Turismo) adopted Decree No. 601 of 2013, which states that pre-import authorizations for certain textiles and alcoholic beverages are no longer required as of 15 April 2013. Consequently, importers will not need to obtain authorisations from the tax and customs authorities (Dirección de Impuestos y Aduanas Nacionales) before bringing these goods into Colombia.
