COVID-19: Commercial air travel ban extension announced

16 Sep 20

VENEZUELA

IMPACT – MEDIUM

Air travel in Venezuela will continue to be restricted until at least Oct. 12. Only flights for humanitarian purposes are allowed at this time.

Key Points:

  • Several nations are carrying out humanitarian flight to deliver medical goods, essential supplies and to repatriate foreign nationals.
  • Foreign nationals in Venezuela trying to return to their home countries should contact their embassy or consulate for information on repatriation flights.
  • Venezuela remains under lockdown and the border with Colombia remains closed.

Background: Commercial air travel has been shut down since March. Consular services are also strictly limited because of COVID-19 and diplomatic relations.

Analysis & Comments:
Most travel to Venezuela is not permitted at this time and will remain suspended until at least Oct. 12. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
