The Visas and Immigration section at the Embassy of Canada in Venezuela shut down on January 29, 2013.

Based on a press release from the Canadian government, the action is part of a plan to streamline related operations.

Canada's consulates in Detroit and Seattle closed as well.

Ongoing applications for visas or provisional residence permits previously filed at the Caracas office will proceed as usual at the Canadian office located in Mexico.

New visa applicants should apply online. Their applications will be addressed by the Canadian office in Mexico.
