On November 2, Venezuela lifted their eight-month restrictions on international flights, enacted within the framework of radical measures to fight responsibly against COVID-19.

In last week’s statement it was announced that, as a preventive measure against the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus, the passengers coming on these flights will have to “comply with the collective social quarantine under strict supervision of the State, as well as undergo the corresponding medical evaluations.”

What remains undefined are the operations of domestic flights that have been suspended since March.
