Exporting to Colombia – legal requirements

21 July 2021

Our Exporting to Colombia guide summarises the laws and regulations applying to products imported into Colombia, including customs requirements and procedures, import duties, intellectual property, consumer protection and immigration.

Although trade between Colombia and New Zealand is modest, Colombia offers promising opportunities for New Zealand exporters – including, after New Zealand’s recent promotion to associate membership of the Pacific Alliance, the possibility of New Zealand establishing a free trade agreement with Colombia.

Colombia has also recently made sweeping changes to its trade legislation to make exporting to foreign markets easier and less expensive. Colombia’s principal exports include crude and refined petroleum, coal briquettes, coffee and gold. Colombia has 10 port zones located in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

We provide a high level guide for New Zealand companies looking to export to Colombia, including documentation and compliance requirements and legal considerations.
