Message for U.S. Citizens Interested in Departing Venezuela
April 14, 2020

Location: Venezuela 

We continue to explore all options to address the current travel disruptions and assist U.S. citizens in Venezuela. U.S. citizens in Venezuela who wish to depart should remain vigilant of changes in flight availability, but should also be prepared to stay in place during the cessation of international flights from Venezuela.

The Maduro regime extended the national quarantine for 30 additional days, starting on April 12.  All international travel into and out of Venezuela remains suspended. If we become aware of any flights leaving Venezuela, we will provide that information to STEP enrollees and on social media as quickly as possible. Please bear in mind that with no U.S. diplomatic personnel in Venezuela since March 2019, we may not be able to provide this information with much advance notice.

In the unlikely event that evacuation flights become available and you would like to be considered for such flights, please register your interest by filling out this form U.S. Citizens in Venezuela Repatriation as soon as possible.  If you have already submitted this form, we have your information and you do not need to fill it out again. U.S.-Venezuela dual nationals should indicate if they have a valid Venezuelan passport. 

Please continue to monitor the Virtual Embassy website and social media accounts for the latest information.
