IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Government offices, including immigration services, may close or operate on a limited basis ahead of the country’s presidential election on Sunday.
What does the change mean? While no official statement of closure has been made, offices may close or operate with limited hours in the days leading up to and immediately following the election. Processing for many immigration services may be delayed until next week.
BAL Analysis: Employers who need services should expect delays this week and next week because of the election. Foreign nationals may wish to avoid nonessential travel in and around Caracas until after the presidential election, especially in the event of large demonstrations or rallies.
