Venezuela Visa

Welcome to Travel Visa Pro? Are you in need of a Venezuela visa? Let us take you under our wing and help you through this process. Our services include passport processing, agent services on call, form filling, and submission of documents as well as the delivery of visas. With your visa processing in our hands, you can rest assured that it will go through without a hitch.

If you are traveling to Venezuela on official duty and you are a US citizen, you will not require a visa. However, if you are visiting for tourism or business, you will need one. Here is what you need to know:

You must have a valid US passport to acquire a Venezuela visa. It should be undamaged, unaltered and should have at least six months of validity left. Less than six months of validity can cause you problems when trying to enter some countries, and it is always best to be safe. If you do not meet these passport requirements, our agents will take you through new passport applications, renewals, and replacements, which we offer at expedited rates.

Your passport should have some unused visa pages, and we recommend at least two. These pages allow for you to go through stamping upon entry into Venezuela as well as when you are leaving. Lack of the same can land you in a situation where the immigration department refuses you entry.

You should also look into whether you require a transit visa. Suppose you are going to Venezuela on an official visit and thus have no visa, you should check with your airline as to if you will need a transit visa during connections.

We look forward to processing your visa and thank you for choosing Travel Visa Pro!

Business visa to VENEZUELA
Tourist visa to VENEZUELA

You must have:

a valid U.S. passport in good condition, with at least six months of validity remaining from the date of arrival in Venezuela, and
a valid Venezuelan visa. Visas are not available upon arrival.
Visas: Please check the website of the Embassy of Venezuela in the United States for the most current information about visa application requirements and procedures.

Immigration officials often require proof of accommodation while in Venezuela, adequate means to support yourself, and an onward departure itinerary. Only use official crossing points when entering Venezuela. You must obtain an entry stamp to prove you entered the country legally.

Journalists: Journalists must have the appropriate accreditation and working visa from the Venezuelan authorities before arriving in the country. There have been recent cases of international journalists being expelled and/or detained for not having proper permission to work in Venezuela. The process for acquiring the Venezuelan documents is lengthy, so journalists are advised to apply well in advance of their travel date.

Airport Security: You should arrive and depart during daylight hours due to the frequency of robberies at gunpoint along the roads leading to and from the airport. Embassy officials have received reports of harassment of travelers arriving at the Maiquetia airport by panhandlers soliciting U.S. Dollars. The Embassy strongly advises against tipping in U.S. Dollars and that all arriving passengers make advance plans for transportation from the airport to their place of lodging using a trusted party or dispatch taxi service. More information on taxis,currency, and tipping can be found in the SAFETY and LOCAL LAWS sections.

Margarita Island: The Government of Venezuela uses biometric equipment to register photos and fingerprints of all travelers to Margarita Island. Please take your U.S. passport with you to travel to the Island.

ABC Islands: As of January 2018 the Government of Venezuela instituted a complete maritime and aviation embargo for Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. This temporary suspension of trade and travel affects both passenger and cargo traffic between the two destinations. As of the time of publication, no announcement has been made for the end of this embargo.

Traveling with children: Venezuela’s child protection law mandates that minors (under 18) of any nationality who are traveling alone, with only one parent, or with a third party, must present a copy of their birth certificate and written, notarized authorization from the absent parent(s) or legal guardian, specifically granting permission to travel alone, with one parent, or with a third party. If documents are prepared in the United States, the authorization and the birth certificate must be translated into Spanish, notarized, and authenticated by the Embassy of Venezuela or a Venezuelan Consulate in the United States. Additional information on the prevention of international child abduction can be found on the travel.state.gov website.

Dual Nationality: Venezuelan law requires Venezuelan citizens to enter and depart Venezuela using Venezuelan passports. Therefore, if you hold dual U.S.-Venezuelan nationality, you must plan to travel between Venezuela and the United States with valid U.S. and Venezuelan passports. Please see our website for more information on entry and exit requirements pertaining to dual nationals.

Resident Visas: If you reside in Venezuela, you must plan to renew your residency visa well in advance of expiration. U. S citizens residing in Venezuela have experienced difficulties and delays renewing their residency visas. Venezuelan authorities ask foreigners for proof of their identification and legal status in the country.

If you live in Venezuela, be sure to obtain legitimate Venezuelan residency documentation. Do not employ intermediaries to purchase Venezuelan resident visas and/or work permits. You must sign the resident visa in person at the Servicio Administrativo de Identificación, Migración y Extranjería (SAIME) at SAIME headquarters in Caracas.

Immunizations:

Yellow Fever: Travelers entering Venezuela from certain countries are required to have a current yellow fever vaccination certificate. Carry your International Certificate of Vaccination (or yellow card) with you, as they may ask you to present it upon arrival or departure.

HIV/AIDS: The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Venezuela.
