The Venezuelan Embassy in Mexico City is the official seat of Venezuela’s diplomatic mission to Mexico. It’s in the Polanco neighborhood just to the north of two of the area’s most iconic streets: Campos Eliseos and the Avenida Presidente Masaryk.
While it’s a little removed from the “Embassy Row” bordering right on Chapultepec, the Venezuelan Embassy remains one of the most important in Mexico City. Consular services are available for citizens and visa support for anyone who might need a visa to travel to the country.
Mexico and Venezuela share much common history. Venezuelan hero Simón Bolívar is still the only person twice honored on the Paseo de la Reforma. He’d even visited Mexico City himself way back in 1799. That’s decades prior to either country’s independence.
Today, Mexico ships corn, baby food, shampoo, paper, and machinery and Venezuela ships back steel making machinery, construction materials, and lots of sesame seeds. The two countries are signatories to the Association of Caribbean States, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, the Latin American Integration Association, and both the Organization of American States and the Organization of Ibero-American States. That’s in addition to cultural exchange that has only grown more important in recent years.
Mexico City has long welcomed visitors from all over Venezuela. And Venezuelan citizens are still one of Mexico City’s most important foreign populations.
Embassy Hours: Weekdays, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
