The world’s largest passport exporter, Venezuela, has begun requiring all visitors to its airports and ports to sign in with a different language at check-in.
It also is allowing visitors to buy a $1,000 voucher that entitles them to buy or receive a passport from a designated interpreter at the airport.
But there are signs that Venezuelans are still hesitant to accept a foreign passport.
The United States Embassy in Caracas told The Wall St. Journal in an email that the embassy is “still in discussions with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs” on the visa requirements, and that it is planning to hold consultations with Venezuelan citizens, including expatriates, in the coming days.
The embassy said the ministry would “revisit the issues related to visa issues in the near future.”
