IMMIGRATION MATTERS
 
When arriving in the triple border region, you have an entry visa either for Brasil, Colombia or Peru. This visa is good for travelling within the border region Colombia (Leticia up to Puerto Narino), Brasil (Tabatinga and Benjamin Constant) and Peru (Santa Rosa and Marasha) without any further immigration formalities.
 
When leaving the border region to ANOTHER COUNTRY you must get an exit stamp from the immigration office of the country you are leaving and AT THE SAME DAY (or NEXT DAY) the entry stamp from the immigration office of the country in which you are continuing your travel. Failure to do so may result in fines and/or deportation.
 
The Colombian Immigration office DAS (Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad) is located in the LETICIA airport, closing at 6 p.m. You can go to the airport by our bicycles or by a mototaxi.
 
The Peruan Immigration in SANTA ROSA office is usually open during departure and arrival times of the boats. It is recommended to do the EMIGRATION from Peru already at the day of arrival, and the immigration in Colombia or Brasil at the same (or next) day.
 
The Brazilian Policia Federal is located in the Avenida de Amizade in Tabatinga, next to the Caixa Economica Federal. From Leticia downtown you can take the white VW combi to Tabatinga and ask the driver to let you out at the "Federal".
