By Resolution 8470 of 2019, the Civil Registration Office will grant Colombian nationality to children of Venezuelan parents born in Colombia as an exceptional measure to reduce the number of stateless children.
This exceptional measure applies to children born in Colombia from 19 August 2015 and can be requested for the next two years, counted from 20 August 2019.
To be eligible to apply for this benefit, both parents should be Venezuelan. Alternatively, the birth certificate should only include the name of the Venezuelan parent. This benefit is not available if one of the parents is not Venezuelan.
