The U.S. Embassy in Caracas advises all U.S. citizens living, working and traveling in Venezuela that Venezuela’s Presidential Inauguration, scheduled for this Thursday, January 10, 2013, has been postponed because of the current state of health of President Hugo Chavez. Given the uncertainty surrounding this situation, U.S. citizens residing or traveling in Venezuela should exercise caution during the next few days and until further notice. The U. S. Embassy encourages citizens to avoid political gatherings and demonstrations, and to exercise caution within the vicinity of such activities. U.S. citizens should monitor local media sources and the Embassy’s website for new developments, and for news of any planned gatherings.
Please consult http://caracas.usembassy.gov/emergency-preparedness.html and review the “Emergency Preparedness” information list in the text. Items on hand should include a flashlight and extra batteries, cash for emergency purchases, prescription medications, and a charged cellular telephone.
Monitor local news and practice good personal security measures. If your school or employer has a security or emergency preparedness plan, please be sure to familiarize yourself with its content and otherwise have a plan in place to ensure you and your family’s safety. If there are changes to the assessment of the overall situation, the Embassy will post updated information in messages to American citizens.
U.S. citizens living in Venezuela are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy through the State Department’s travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov, and to obtain updated information on travel and security within Venezuela.
