Canada will recognize Venezuelan passports
On August 19, 2019, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), published a press release stating that Canada recognizes the decree published by the Venezuelan National Assembly on June 7, 2019, regarding the validity of expired Venezuelan passports. According to the local authorities, Venezuelan passport holders who wish to travel to or stay in Canada can now continue to use their passport if it expired less than 5 years ago or will soon expire. Venezuelans can use these passports to apply for a visitor visa, a study or work permit, or permanent residence or to extend their stay in Canada. Applicants must meet all eligibility and entry requirements to travel to and stay in Canada.
