Venezuela

FAQ

Is Venezuela a safe place to travel?
In recent years, crime rates have risen to alarming levels in Caracas. High unemployment rates and increasing poverty have combined with less police enforcement to create conditions that make even locals very uncomfortable. Walking alone at night is not considered safe anywhere and some places, such as the city centre, are considered dangerous even during the day. However this is not the case in most of Venezuela, and it should not put you off visiting the rest of the country.

It is advised to take out travel insurance to cover any medical expenses or loss of belongings. And also to carry a photocopy of your passport and insurance policy in a separate bag.

Is the water safe to drink?
It is best NOT to drink the tap water in Venezuela. Bottled water is fairly cheap and readily available. If your stomach is particularly sensitive use bottled water to brush your teeth as well. Also order drinks without ice (sin hielo).

Do I need vaccinations to travel in Venezuela?
It is recommended that all travellers visit their family doctor or a travel clinic 4-6 weeks before travel, to receive up to date information on vaccinations. Vaccinations for Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Yellow Fever are always recommended. Vaccinations for Hepatitis B, Diphtheria, Tuberculosis and Rabies are sometimes recommended, depending on the type of travelling you intend to do.

What is the time zone in Venezuela?
The time zone in Venezuela is GMT minus 4 hours.
