Travelling to Venezuela

Timeline

Hola! I am travelling to Venezuela in May to see mi querida again. I went in February to see her for the first time in Venezuela.

Getting through Immigration the first time in Venezuela was a breeze. And I don't expect problem this time around. But as we have just started our K1 Visa application process through the California Service Center, I expect to be travelling to Venezuela quite a few times over the next year.

Does anyone have any experience entering Venezuela so many times? Should I be nervous that they will turn me around one of these times? Anyone know of any triggers that would make them turn me around?

Should I, like those seeking entry into the US, bring a letter from my work, etc... showing my intent to return the US.

Given the political situation down there, the last thing in the world I want to do is bring evidence of the K1 fiancee petition with me. She and her family are worried that the government would try to interfere if they knew she intended to immigrtae at some point in the future.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I would not bring evidence of a K-1. We have a friend who went to Venezuela and needed to get his passport renewed while he was there, and because they knew he was a permanent resident in the US, they would not return his passport to him. I believe he had to get legal assistance to get it returned.

I honestly don't think you would have any difficult, as a lot of South American countries depend on tourism from countries like the US, Britain, Germany in some way shape or form. However, better safe than sorry - if you bring proof of intent to return and they never ask for it, you're fine. If you don't and they want it, then you have a problem.

I've been to Venezuela several times in the past 18 months and have never experienced any problems. I'll be going again on May 21st for my husband's K3 interview and expect to have his visa shortly after. Enjoy your visit and good luck on your visa.
