For the New Year, a new pearl of the tropics – and we are talking about Venezuela – planned to simplify the “covid” rules for Russian tourists. So, from December 31, according to ATOR, the new pearl of the tropics announced the simplification of entry for Russian tourists, reducing prices. In particular, the countrywill no longer require tourists to undergo PCR testing for COVID-19 upon arrival. Although the rest of the measures will remain.
At the moment, all tourists, regardless of the presence or absence of vaccination, must undergo a PCR test upon arrival at the airport. For organized tourists, according to Intourist experts, the cost of the test is $60 and is included in the ticket price. This means you don't have to pay anything on the spot. It is from this unpleasant and costly duty that they plan to save tourists.
However, Venezuela has not yet completely removed the “covid barriers”. Tourists must present either a certificate of vaccination, which must indicate that the tourist has been fully vaccinated no less than 14 and no more than 270 days before arrival, or a certificate confirming that they are fully vaccinated and received a booster dose. Those who are not vaccinated will need a negative PCR test for COVID-19 with a QR code or link taken no later than 72 hours before the flight arrives. Also, all tourists arriving in Caracas must register and fill out a health form on the pasedesalud.casalab.com.ve page.
However, as Intourist added, this does not really stop tourists – the tour operator flies to Venezuela on the blocks of seats of the Conviasa airline, and the demand is high – we had to double the quota for New Year's races. At the moment, the last seats left on the flight departing on December 25, and the December arrivals were closed at the beginning of November.
As for the reduction in prices for package tours to Venezuela, the tour operator will announce it in the second half of January, after New Year holidays, when the traditional “failure” in sales comes. Flying away for two weeks to the tropical island of Margarita will cost from 154 thousand rubles. for two.
