Embassy of Portugal in Colombia

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Message from the Ambassador

Dear compatriots, dear Colombian friends,

I am pleased to welcome you on the website of the Embassy of Portugal in Bogota and to introduce myself a few days after my arrival in Colombian territory.

It is a great privilege and immense pleasure for me to be nominated to represent Portugal in Colombia, particularly as relations between the two countries are significantly enhanced not only at the political-diplomatic level – as attests a recent official visit that President Juan Manuel Santos made to Portugal in November 2017 - as well as in other areas of bilateral relations: economic-commercial and cultural.

There is, however, still a lot of space to stimulate and deepen all aspects of this affective and friendly relationship, and, I confess, this is one of the purposes that motivates and determines me.

As my predecessor stated, I have no doubt that the very positive image of Portugal in this country is also due to our gradually increasing community and the personal and professional examples of each of our fellow citizens residing and working here.

The purpose of this page is to inform on the activities and resources of the Embassy, ​​both politically and culturally, as well as economic aspects and investment opportunities, while providing the necessary information on consular matters.

I invite you to contact our services which will remain, as always, at your disposal and in the service of cooperation and friendship between Portugal and Colombia.

Gabriela Soares de Albergaria 
Ambassador
