Colombia’s sex tourism crackdown is having a negative effect on tourists, a new report says.
The report, by the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM), says the country has lost more than $3 billion in revenue due to the crackdown, which has prompted a sharp drop in tourism and forced many to leave the country.
The IOM report, which was released Friday, calls on governments to take concrete measures to curb sex tourism and to protect vulnerable groups like children and the elderly.
Colombia is one of the world’s most popular destinations for sex tourists, with more than 1.4 million registered sex tourists.
It’s also a country where the legal age to purchase sex is 15, and most of those who travel abroad are tourists from countries with lower legal age requirements.
The sex tourism ban has had a significant impact on the economy of the country, with a recent government report estimating that tourism has dropped by as much as 35 per cent in the past year.
The number of sex tourists in Colombia has dropped dramatically since President Juan Manuel Santos took office in 2016.
The country has a population of nearly 4 million, and it’s the third-largest economy in Latin America, after Brazil and Mexico.
According to the report, the IOM says the sex tourism industry in Colombia is now worth about $1.4 billion.
Many sex tourists have left the country in recent years, particularly in rural areas where the government is not doing enough to fight the trade.
“Sex tourism is a problem, but we need to be proactive,” said Luis Fábregas, a spokesperson for the IPC.
“It’s the result of government policies that are not working.”
Colombia’s president, Juan Manuel Sánchez, has said he wants to see the country turn its focus toward promoting tourism and other economic activities, but he’s been criticized for doing so by international partners.
According a report by the IUP, the United States, the European Union, the African Union and other countries have taken steps to curb the sex tourist trade in recent months, including making it illegal to take part in the trade and requiring sex tourism agencies to undergo stricter vetting procedures.
A new report from the IOP says the new measures will not make a dent in the sex trade.
Colombia’s economy, the report says, will suffer because of the restrictions.
“In many ways, sex tourism is still a highly regulated industry,” the report said.
“The legal age for purchasing sex in Colombia remains at 15 years.
Moreover, in the country of Colombia, where sex tourism has become a major economic driver, the government has not made any significant efforts to reduce the demand for sex.”
In the past, sex tourists had been able to travel freely to other countries, such as Brazil and Russia, and had been treated as tourists.
However, with the country’s legal age, those visiting other countries will not be able to legally purchase sex.
Fálregas said that’s why he’s concerned that many sex tourists are leaving Colombia.
“Many people are leaving for other countries because they don’t want to pay a high price for their services, but it’s not a legal business, it’s a moral business,” he said.
Sex tourism is illegal in Colombia and illegal for tourists to travel abroad without a government permit.
It is not illegal for sex tourism to take place, but if tourists are not paying for their service, they can be fined, and the fines can be up to $10,000.
