How to get the Biosecurity Traveler Pass?
The first step to follow is to enter the page https://biocheck.inac.gob.ve and complete the information requested in the form.
To obtain the Biosecurity Travel Pass, certain requirements must be presented, such as:
• Selfie-type photo (self-portrait) of the passport, identity card, or national identity document, in case of being a foreigner.
• Vaccination certificate, at least 14 days from the last dose, prior to the date of entry to Venezuela.
• If you do not have a vaccination certificate, you must present a negative result of a molecular PCR-RT test, with a maximum validity of 72 hours.
After completing the steps, the system will notify the user of the success of the operation, through a message.
Finally, to obtain the Biosafety Travel Pass, one must wait a maximum of 72 hours, during which time an electronic receipt in PDF format will arrive by email.
The email will include the electronic receipt with a QR code, the mandatory requirement that must be presented to the airline to enter Venezuela.
