From 3 July, Colombian nationals will be able to transit airside through UK airports without needing a Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV).

Colombian nationals will still need a visa if they want to cross the UK border for any reason, whether to visit or change flights. If a connecting flight is from another airport, passengers will still need to get a Visitor in Transit Visa before passing through the UK.
