Vat exemption for foreigners

Decree 297 of February 23, 2016, regulates the sales tax (VAT) exemption for tourist services, established in Article 481 (d) of the Tax Statute, as amended by article 55 of Law 1607 of 2012 , And in which the lodging services provided to Non-Residents in Colombia, who come to the country to carry out tourism activities, cultural purposes or other academic events, are considered exempt from sales tax, Scientific, artistic, cultural, sports or medical treatments (all packaged as a hotel package).

These people must meet the following requirements:

  1. The guest must prove their non-resident status by submitting their original passport, verifying their immigration status with the current permit stamp: PIP3, PIP5, PIP6, PIP10, TP7, TP11, TP12.
  2. The services must be provided to residents abroad.
  3. The services must be provided in Colombian territory.
  4. Packages must be sold abroad or by operating agencies or hotels registered in the National Tourist Registry.
Considering that the type of VISA will be known at the time of check-in or registration of the guest, VAT will be charged directly to the passenger in the hotel in the cases that the seal in his passport determinates. We would like to inform you of this provision from the Government of Colombia, to raise awareness, that this tax can be included in your hotel bill.
