I. Arriving in Bogotá 🛬
To start off, let’s talk about what you need to know when arriving in Bogotá. Make sure to check the Covid requirements for entry, including vaccination or negative test results. You’ll also need to show a ticket for your return flights. Before departure, fill out the ‘Check-Mig’ form on the Migración Colombia website. Remember to be cautious while in Bogotá and follow safety precautions such as not making yourself an obvious target for thieves.
II. Transit 🚙
Most attendees will be landing at Bogotá’s airport, El Dorado International Airport (BOG). From there, we recommend using Uber or cabify to easily reach the Agora Bogotá Convention Center, where Devcon will take place. Ubers are cheap and the safest form of transportation. There will be a Devcon logistics team at the airport to assist you starting from October 8th.
III. Devcon Registration 📝

To skip the line on Day-1, you can pre-register and receive your wristband, SIM card (if needed), and POAP (collectible ERC-721 token) beforehand. Pre-registration dates and locations are provided.
