With the inauguration of the binational access, Venezuela and Colombia consummated the “total opening” of their border. The measure contemplates the transit of vehicles of all kinds, something that has not happened since 2015.
Commercial operations are supervised, on the Venezuelan side, by 18 government institutions, which guarantee that the procedures comply with the regulations of each nation, as reported this Sunday by the governor of Táchira, Freddy Bernal.
According to a note published on the website of Colombian Migration on December 30, 2022, Venezuelan private vehicles that want to enter Colombian territory must prove the property title or document from the Venezuelan authority that proves ownership; the SOAT or equivalent insurance policy, with the same protection and coverage characteristics; the identification plates of the country of origin and be in optimal mechanical and safety conditions.
