Hi! I think that buying a farm in Venezuela could be an opportunity for foreighners because the land could be very cheap. But I really suggest you to find a local in whom you trust to make the negotiation. If not the seller could take advantage of you... In the same way with change of currency. Is not difficult to find buyers for US dolars, I suggest to check DAILY www.dolartoday.com where you will find an approximate of the exchange rate in the black market, remember that you may be offered a little less depending on the quantity and conditions of the sale.
Hope my answer will help you!

Not a very good idea! It can be taken away by the chavistas!

there are now several states that have forbidden the sale of property, and cars & trucks! You will also need a Venezuelan partner to buy anything unless you already have a Cedula (national ID card). Where are you thinking of buying? There are no guarantees that the property will remain yours if the gov't wants it for any reason. I have been in the country for over 10 years and would not recommend buying anything right now, there may be a civil war in the not to distant future!! WAIT!

first off you can't buy property unless you have an national ID card (Cedula) which takes a year or so to get, then you have to deal with the state and local governments as far as what you're going to grow. Then if you are successful the gov't will expropriate the property. During this time when the basics are not available in the grocery stores, I would WAIT til the gov't changes. As far as changing money goes there are swindlers around every corner you need to know someone reputable!!! Also now, you'll need a local bank account to receive your local currency, because changers don't have cash on hand and need to make bank transfers and many banks won't open an acct without a national ID card!

WAIT!!!
