The team of the Venezuelan embassy on an official visit to São Paulo, this Saturday will carry out a day of in-person consular services to attend to the population of Venezuelans living in the city with the collaboration of the Jesuit Service for Migrants and Refugees.
Among the consular services that will be offered are the authentication of birth certificates, marriage certificates and driver’s licenses, as well as the issuance of life certificate, consular letter and bachelor’s letter, a procedure that requires the presence of two witnesses.
The seven Venezuelan consulates in Brazil, in the hands of the regime, stopped serving Venezuelans months ago and even when they do, they charge $50 to issue documents that have no legitimacy since their officials are no longer recognized by the Brazilian government since February 2019.
The legitimate embassy began issuing documents electronically in 2020 for free, in response to numerous requests from Venezuelans who have emigrated to Brazil. In just three months, Ambassador Maria Teresa Belandria signed more than 600 documents which have, in many cases, opened up new employment opportunities for Venezuelans in their new home.
Mientras los consulados ocupados por funcionarios del régimen están cerrados, la embajada legítima realizará mañana una jornada de servicios consulares para los vzlanos en São Paulo. Tus necesidades merecen ser atendidas. ¡Seguimos trabajando! @jguaido @matebe #TuEmbajadaEnBrasil pic.twitter.com/aaWUqibEsZ
