Description

Not too busy place to extend your TIP. One thing though they said you can only extend a week or two before leaving the country. They were kind to help us even though we still had a month and a half left

Latest Check-Ins

Easy process, they made all the copies they needed. They had to check the papers with Cartagena which took quite some time, all in all it took 5 hours, but while they check things with Cartagena you can leave and return later.
You need to bring: Passport, current TIP, current SOAT, renewed Visa.

We initially visited when we had two weeks remaining on our van’s TIP but they would not perform the extension earlier than one week, even after explaining we’d be away from any office locations. They also informed us that we had to have an imprint of our VIN (which they later never asked for). We returned a week later and were able to get our extension. It took 2.5 hours. We had to complete a request for extension (available onsite) and provide the driver’s passport and tourist permit extension, vehicle insurance, original TIP, and title/registration. Our van was photographed and they checked the VIN and plate. Friendly staff, patience necessary...as always ; )

Friendliest and most helpful staff. You will need your vehicle (they need to check VIN and license plate), the vehicle title, your passport, and visa extension paperwork or inside-your-passport stamp (depending on which immigration gave you), and vehicle insurance. Allow for some time. The extension paperwork for two vehicles took two hours and there was no line to wait in. Very quiet office. They offered water and coffee.
