Venezuela Travel Warning
Issued by US Department of State
Apr 12, 2002
This Public Announcement is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to violence
between anti-government and pro-government protesters. It supersedes the
Public Announcement of April 8, 2002 and expires on July 12, 2002.
U.S citizens should defer travel to Venezuela until further notice. There
has been violence in Caracas between anti-government and pro-government
protesters, as well as large demonstrations and disruptions of public
services throughout the country. Although the international airport is
still functioning, roads giving access to the airport may be blocked or
closed, and the availability of airport services is subject to rapid change.
The Department reminds U.S. citizens that they should carefully monitor news
broadcasts for further developments. For further information concerning
travel to Venezuela, travelers should consult the Department of State's
