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.
