Travel Alerts

Power has finally been restored across Venezuela after a major outage which has lasted more than a week.  Venezuela’s information minister said power has been completely restored, however, CNN reporters on the ground are still reporting that some outages are still occurring in parts of Caracas.

The power outage put the country in a state of turmoil with increased crime and food shortages etc. Travelers should thus continue to exercise extreme caution.  As a reminder, the U.S. State Dept. already had a Level 4 travel advisory in place before the power outages. The Level 4 advice states, “Do not travel to Venezuela due to crime, civil unrest, poor health infrastructure, and arbitrary arrest and detention of U.S. citizens.”

Airlines have restored flights but some are still offering waivers as follows:

Iberia – waivers are valid for flights through Mar. 26

TAP Air Portugal – is allowing flexible rebooking while current conditions continue but new travel must be complete by Mar. 31.

Please contact your Adelman travel consultant for additional information.
