On March 11, 2019, the Department of State announced the temporary suspension of operations of U.S. Embassy Caracas and withdrawal of diplomatic personnel.  The U.S. Consular Agency in Maracaibo remains closed.

All consular services are suspended until further notice.  The Travel Advisory for Venezuela remains at a Level 4: Do Not Travel.  Visit the Venezuela Country Information page for additional information.
