I was on vacation in the US for 3 weeks. I am a Colombian citizen.

Before I was to return on March 23 to Colombia my flight was cancelled due to Colombia closing its borders including to its citizens that were traveling overseas at the time. All international flights have been canceled.

What happens if my visa travel date expires before I can leave to go to Colombia?

You have 3 options.

  1. Your US entry could be still valid for a few months. Usually, an entry is valid for 6 months. You can plan to stay in US till situation is clear and flights are open to Colombia. It can be a few months.

  2. If your entry is expiring, you can apply for an extension.

  3. You can contact your embassy about the possibility of repatriation or any other help. Even if normal flights are not allowed, repatriation with quarantine might be possible.
