TR-L 90-day visa application issuance has been suspended until further notice due to an internal audit at the immigration office (Servicio Administrativo de Identificación Migración y Extranjería) (SAIME), which processes this type of visa. At this time, there is no estimated date for when issuance will resume. Other visa applications are not affected.


Background

The TR-L visa is a short-term work visa issued to foreign workers who remain on foreign payroll after approval of a visa authorization application.

What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

Foreign nationals with pending TR-L 90-day visas should send their immigration professional a scanned copy of their flight itinerary to Venezuela so that co-counsel can request a special exception for the visa to be issued. This determination will be made at the discretion of the immigration officer.
