Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.
Aiming to assist U.S. citizens in Venezuela, the U.S. Embassy in Caracas compiled lists of lawyers, medical facilities and accredited public translators in Venezuela.
These lists are not meant to be complete, as there are many competent professionals in the community. Many of these professionals speak English. Inclusion on this list does not indicate exceptional competence but rather a lack of negative commentary. It does not represent either a guarantee of competence or endorsement by the Department of State.
Acceptable medical and dental care is available in Caracas but varies in other areas, especially in rural zones. U.S. medical insurance is not always valid outside the United States. The Medicaid-Medicare program does not provide payment for services outside the United States. In some cases, medical insurance with specific overseas and medical evacuation coverage has proved useful. Travelers are strongly encouraged to purchase travel insurance in case of an emergency. For information on health risks, travelers can review the Centers for Disease Control’s website for travelers.
