LIVING IN VENEZUELA

The cost of living in Venezuela

If you are relocating to Venezuela from the USA, UK or Australia for example, the cost of living in Venezuela will seem relatively low. However, as you can see from the jump in rental prices for larger apartments, you may be paying more for larger apartments in gated communities, so this, and good insurance is certainly something to consider in your costs of living in Venezuela.

The job market in Venezuela

Due to the ongoing economic crisis, the job market in Venezuela has severely decreased. You may find it difficult to find a job in Venezuela if you don’t already have something lined up in security and military services, the oil industry or NGO’s, as many international companies have decided to move out of the country.


Schools in Venezuela

If you are moving to Venezuela with children, International schools for expats in Venezuela can be found mostly in Caracas. The Central University of Venezuela is one of the oldest universities in the Americas, and also holds programs for international students. The school system in Venezuela is broken up into these categories:

Elementary
Age: 6-11
Compulsory: Yes
Middle School
Age: 12-14
Compulsory: Yes
Secondary
Age: 15-16
Compulsory: Yes

Healthcare in Venezuela

If you are moving to Venezuela from places like the UK, you will, unfortunately, find that healthcare in Venezuela is very poor due to lack of government funding. For this reason, it is essential that expats have private health insurance to access the better-quality healthcare in Venezuela.


Driving in Venezuela

When you move to Venezuela, it is recommended but not mandatory to have an international driving permit. If you plan on driving in Venezuela, make sure you bring your local driver’s license and carry your passport with you as you will pass military checkpoints on Venezuelan roads. You may find that in major cities, the traffic can be chaotic but on the plus side, petrol in Venezuela is extremely cheap. However, it is in short supply in some areas, so it is always advisable to fill up when you can.

Eurosender’s urgent document delivery will send your urgent vehicle documents express to and from Venezuela. You can book right now on our booking channel, and your documents will arrive in as soon as 24-48 hours worldwide.
