About Venezuela Country

See: Visa Lottery Application Form Guide  & 45 Countries that Don’t Require a Visa for Nigerians

With its reputation for violence and political instability, many travellers opt to give Venezuela a wide berth. But those brave enough to visit this feisty South American nation will discover a country of extraordinary diversity and abundant natural beauty; a land of lofty Andean peaks, mysterious Lost World plateaus, wildlife rich rainforests, vibrant cities and idyllic Caribbean islands.

At the heart of all this lies Caracas, Venezuela’s thronging capital. A hotchpotch of hillside favelas, crumbling colonial buildings and glistening skyscrapers, the city has much to offer visitors; there’s a fine collection of museums, galleries and historic monuments, not to mention a pulsating nightlife. Even the food’s good, nowadays. But for all its appeal, most of Venezuela’s attractions lie beyond the capital city, hidden away in national parks and reserves which cover an impressive 40% of the country.

The lush tropical lowlands of Los Llanos harbour abundant wildlife, with eco-conscious hatos (ranches) offering safaris to view caiman, puma, anaconda, capybara, hundreds of birds and much more. Then there are the table-top mountains of the Guyana Highlands, whose summits loom over golden savannahs and bristle with prehistoric flora and fauna. These towering peaks spawn dramatic waterfalls, including the awesome Angel Falls, officially the world’s highest.

Those with an appetite for adventure can be sated with an excursion into the virgin rainforest of Amazonas, Venezuela’s least-visited region, where indigenous communities cling onto traditional lives in the jungle. Alternatively, head to Mérida to tackle the soaring Andean peaks or go piranha fishing in the Orinoco, South America’s second longest river, which empties into the wildlife-rich wetlands of the Orinoco Delta.

Beyond that, the clear waters of the Caribbean lap onto Venezuela’s stunning coastline, where numerous offshore islands provide ample opportunities for reef diving, partying and pandering to pleasure. Amongst them the Los Roques archipelago, which is the epitome of Caribbean island idyll and a very long way from the unsavoury headlines of the mainland.

Venezuela Health Care and Vaccinations

Title Special precautions
Tetanus Yes
Typhoid Yes
Rabies Sometimes
Yellow Fever Yes*
Malaria Sometimes
Hepatitis A Yes
Diphtheria Yes

*Yellow fever vaccination certificate required for travellers over 1 year of age arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever transmission, including Brazil.

Health Care

Treatment at public hospitals is free, though Venezuela’s public healthcare system, like much of the country, is in a state of crisis. Private facilities are of a much higher standard and comparable to the facilities you might find in Europe or the USA. The best-equipped hospitals are located in Caracas and the state capitals, although many are overrun with more patients than they can cope with. Taking out travel insurance is advisable. 24-hour pharmacies are recognizable by a red-lit sign labelled ‘turno’.

Food and Drink

Mains water, where it’s accessible, is not drinkable and should be sterilised, either through boiling or filtering. Alternatively, drink bottled water; it is the subject of price controls and rationing, which means it can be difficult to find. Milk is pasteurised and dairy products are safe for consumption. Local meat, poultry, seafood, fruit and vegetables are generally considered safe to eat. When it comes to eating out use common sense, stick to food that’s been freshly cooked, and be wary of fruit or vegetable salads where the ingredients may have been washed in mains water. The same goes for ice used in cold drinks.

Other Risks

Vaccination against hepatitis B is advised for visitors on long-term stays who have regular contact with the local population. The risk of malaria in Venezuela is in the main limited to those visiting the Amazon basin area.

Venezuela is considered to have a high risk of Zika virus transmission. The mosquito-borne illness can be spread from a pregnant woman to her unborn baby as well as through sexual contact. The World Health Organisation recommends travellers to Venezuela protect themselves from mosquito bites and suggests wearing clothes (preferably light-coloured) that cover as much of the body as possible, sleeping under mosquito nets and using repellents that contain DEET. Pregnant women are advised to postpone non-essential travel until after pregnancy and pregnant women whose sexual partners live in or travel to areas with Zika virus transmission should follow safe sexual practices or abstain from sex for the duration of their pregnancy. Women who are pregnant, at risk of getting pregnant, or planning pregnancy should seek further advice from their doctor before travelling to Venezuela.

Money and duty free for Venezuela

Currency and Money

Currency information

Bolívar Fuerte (VEF; symbol Bs.F.) = 100 céntimos. Notes are in denominations of Bs.F. 100,000, 20,000, 10,000, 5000, 2000, 1000 and 500; coin denominations are Bs.F. 500, 100, 50, 20 and 10; 50, 25, 12.5, 10, 5 and 1 céntimos.

Credit cards

MasterCard, Visa and American Express are accepted in the main cities and tourist centres. However, some outlets may have difficulty accepting foreign cards. Venezuela is a cash-dominated society and you may be better off with dollars in most instances.


Most major banks have ATMs and they’re generally available throughout major cities. ATMs have extremely low limits for cash withdrawals on international cards and queues are frequently targeted by criminals. If you’re heading to the Amazon basin, or rural areas where access to cashpoints will be limited, be sure to stockpile some cash beforehand.

Venezuela also has a serious problem with card fraud and cards being cloned. Take care when using credit or debit cards.

Travellers cheques

These used to be widely accepted, but as their usage declines, there are fewer places accepting them and the places that do, may ask you to produce a receipt of purchase. American Express is the standard; other types of traveller’s cheques may not be accepted. A commission of 3% or more is charged. To avoid additional exchange rate charges, take traveller’s cheques in US Dollars.

Banking hours

Mon-Fri 0830-1530.

Currency restrictions

Strict controls are in place on the exchange of local and foreign currency in Venezuela.

Currency exchange

Banks and casas de cambio (exchange offices) will exchange cash; some, such as Italcambio, convert traveller’s cheques as well. High-end hotels can also change money, though often at a less favourable rate. Travellers are advised to bring currency in US Dollars. It is illegal to exchange money on the black market, and it’s worth noting that if you want to change any money back into dollars, you will need to produce an official receipt of the original exchange.

Venezuela duty free


The following items may be imported into Venezuela without incurring customs duty:

• 200 cigarettes and 25 cigars.
• 2L of alcoholic drinks.
