Travel Infomation Description

Traffic Safety and Road Conditions: Avoid driving in Venezuela. If you do drive, drive defensively as most drivers do not obey rules. Child car seats and seatbelts are not required and are seldom available in rental cars and taxis. Some Caracas municipalities have outlawed the use of hand held cell phones while driving.

  • Do not drive at night outside the major cities. Road damage is not clearly marked. Traffic jams are common within Caracas during most of the day and are frequently exploited by criminals.
  • Armed motorcycle gangs operate in traffic jams. Armed robberies by motorcyclists have increased. Comply with demands as victims may be killed for not complying.
  • Stops at National Guard and local police checkpoints are mandatory. Follow all National Guard instructions and be prepared to show vehicle and insurance papers and passports. Vehicles may be searched.
  • Do not use buses, even though they are plentiful and inexpensive, due to the high levels of criminal activity.

Please refer to our Road Safety page for more information.

Aviation Safety Oversight: As of May 1, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a notice prohibiting all flight operations in the territory and airspace of Venezuela at altitudes below FL 260 by all U.S. air carriers and commercial operators. The FAA previously assessed the government of Venezuela?s Civil Aviation Authority as being in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards for oversight of Venezuela?s air carrier operations, however the May 1 notice was released based on the current situation, and takes precedence. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

On May 15, the U.S. Department of Transportation issued an order suspending immediately all nonstop flights between the United States and Venezuela, after the Department of Homeland Security concluded that conditions in Venezuela threaten the safety and security of passengers, aircraft, and crew traveling to or from that country. See: 2019-5-5 Order on www.regulations.gov

Maritime Travel: Incidents of piracy off the coast of Venezuela remain a concern. Yachters should note that anchoring off shore is not considered safe. Marinas, including those in Puerto la Cruz and Margarita Island (Porlamar), provide only minimal security, and U.S. citizens should exercise a heightened level of caution in Venezuelan waters.

Mariners planning travel to Venezuela should also check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts. Information may also be posted to the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, and the NGA broadcast warnings website ; select ?broadcast warnings?).
