Order at least 2 ODC with INK SIGNATURES. This must be specifically requested when ordering. When we receive them, we need to send the ODC’s to Capital Authentication in Ottawa for them to take to Global Affair to authenticate the ODC’s.

When they arrive back, one ODC is given to the family and they will need to call the consulate – 587.351.9460 to set up a time to go there to obtain a Colombian civil registration of death. ***Please note the consulate also requires the exact time of death*** They will need to bring: ODC; passports; Colombian ID card.
