April 23 Repatriation Flight Update
April 23, 2020

Location: Venezuela
Event: April 23 Repatriation Flight Update 

The U.S. government remains committed to assisting U.S. citizens in Venezuela.  At this time, we do not have any potential flights to announce, but we continue working around the clock to find a solution.  We had arranged flights to repatriate U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents from Caracas and Maracaibo, but the Maduro regime did not provide the necessary authorization for the flights.

The U.S. government urges you to take advantage of any available flights should they become available in the future.  The U.S. government cannot guarantee future flights.  U.S. citizens in Venezuela should take steps now to prepare for an indefinite stay in Venezuela.

We encourage all U.S. citizens who are interested in a repatriation flight, if flights become available, to register their interest via the form at http://rebrand.ly/VNZRepat/ as soon as possible.  If you submitted your data in this form previously, you do not need to resubmit it – we still have your information and will contact you if a flight becomes available. Each traveler must fill out a separate form – one form per passenger, even if traveling as a family.

Please do not call the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá to place your name on the list for future repatriation flights unless you have no other way to access the webpage to complete the form.  Please do not call the Embassy to ask if we received your information; if you clicked submit, we received your information.

If you submitted your data previously but are no longer interested in being repatriated from Venezuela, please let us know immediately at ColombiaEvac@state.gov or by calling +57-1-275-2000.

Please continue to monitor the Virtual Embassy website and social media accounts (@USEmbassyVE) for any updates. Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program at step.state.gov to receive email updates.
