The Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the United States alerts all Venezuelan citizens that the usurper regime of Nicolás Maduro, through the SAIME web portal and the portal http://eeuu.embajada.gob.ve/, commits scam by charging “services” for the “granting” of false appointments for the renewal of Venezuelan passports in the United States.
We remind the Venezuelan community that the criminal and corrupt dictatorship, after the administration of President Donald Trump ended relations with Maduro’s regime, a regime that dismantled the consular network in the United States, stole servers that allowed connection with Venezuela, as well as identity documents and cash from the citizens who had legitimately processed the documents required for the renewal and issuance of passports.
We ask our nationals not to fall for the scam and, in case of having made any payment, report the fraudulent transaction to your bank and send us a copy of the procedures performed to the e-mail [email protected]
The diplomatic mission of the legitimate government of Venezuela, led by Acting President Juan Guaidó, is the only one recognized by the authorities of the United States. While we overcome this crisis generated by Maduro’s corrupt regime, which has affected the rights of millions of Venezuelans, we have achieved recognition of the extension of the validity of Venezuelan passports expired for a period of five years, from their date of printed expiration, as established by Presidential Decree 006.
We urge Venezuelan citizens in the US to complete the Single Consular Registry of the Venezuelan Embassy. This is the only official mechanism to access the progressive reactivation of consular services. All Venezuelans in the United States can access through the page www.us.embajadavenezuela.org.
Our commitment is to continue working and fighting to get rid of the dictatorship, restore our freedom, our democracy and enjoy a Venezuela where all rights are for all Venezuelans.
