    If you have a TRUE cedula de extranjeria - you don't. If you have one for being married to a Colombian you do.

    Also -what are you thinking about doing in Colombia? It is INCREDIBLY hard to get a job in Colombia. And if you do, your employer KNOWS there are 1000s of people in line behind you who want jobs.. You will probably work 6 days and no less than 10 hours a day. Maybe more. The minimum wage in Colombia is about 200 dollars a month. It will take 10 of you to make enough to survive.

    If you speak fluent English - you can put an ad in El Tiempo and because you are a NATIVE speaker you will get students.

    Good luck.
