UK resumes sending visas to Venezuela | latest Europe | DW

The British Embassy in Caracas reported this Saturday (30/10/2021) that from 1 November it will resume visa issuance for Venezuelan visitors to European countries, after removing Venezuela from the UK’s red list for coronavirus, given that it is no longer a risk area.

“Venezuela has been removed from the UK’s red list of travel restrictions, which is why the UK Department of Visas and Immigration (UKVI) will start issuing visitor visas in the country again from 11/1/21”, the Embassy reported on its Twitter account.

The publication asks the Venezuelan people to take into account “that the volume of requests received is very high,” so that it may take more time to process the requests sent.

On 7 October, the UK announced that this red list had been reduced to just seven countries, of which Venezuela remained included, to be removed three weeks later.

The measure implies that only British citizens and people with a UK residence permit can enter the country from Venezuela, and they are also required to be quarantined for ten days at a government-designated hotel upon arrival.

From November 1, travelers arriving in the UK from Venezuela will have to undergo a single coronavirus test upon arrival on British soil, if they are vaccinated. (efef)
