Can anyone tell me whether vales vista is correct or if this is a typo? I'm stumped. Thanks.
Explanation: Possibly "vales a la vista", which means vouchers payable on demand. Usually it is a document that covers an expense which is either to be reimbursed to the company later or exchanged for the formal expense document or invoice. This could apply to travel expenses, for example. Happy xlating!

Explanation: It seems to be a special banking term used in Columbia. Below, you will find a website from there. Since there does not seem to be an English equivalent as such, I suggest you translate this term literally.
