VENEZUELA – U.S. Nationals Require Entry Visas

A new Ministerial Decree, effective 28 February, requires U.S. nationals to obtain entry visas to enter Venezuela as tourists.

The decree excludes U.S. citizens from the list of nationals who are exempted from requiring a visa to enter Venezuela. The change is justified by the principle of reciprocity, as the United States requires entry visas for Venezuelan nationals.

U.S. nationals intending to visit Venezuela need to obtain an entry visa corresponding to the purpose of their visit (i.e. business or tourism) from a Venezuelan consulate abroad before travelling.

Action Items

  • U.S. nationals travelling to Venezuela apply for the corresponding entry visa at the Venezuelan consulate abroad.
