I said I was going to look around for cheap plane tickets, unless I want to fly down one day and come back the next, that wasn't going to happen, and the cost of staying in Bogota overnight, outweighed any financial saving from a cheap flight.
I keep reading about the UK Expats living in the EU, complaining that Brexit may well cost them more, but to be fair, I haven't heard one of my friends living there complain...yet! I have little sympathy with the whiners, the rest of us pay our way.
To stay here in Colombia, this renewal will cost me:
1. Check paperwork COP $151.000
2. Cost of Visa (Varies according to Visa) COP $1.137.810
3. Cost of flight to collect the Visa COP $305.000
To renew Colombian ID Card after collecting Visa COP $183.000
Total: COP $1.776.810
(£470 / US$600)
