Huberto Figuera, executive president of the Venezuelan Airline Association, considered that the “biosafety traveler pass”, which will be implemented by INAC starting in August, is a obstacle for travelers.
“The world is opening up to live with covid, but this measure is one more obstacle,” he said during an interview with Unión Radio.
He also assured that said requirement makes it difficult for passengers to arrive or leave a country with the least amount of paperwork possible. For what he indicated that since ALAV They hope to meet with the aeronautical sector to study this measure.
Figuera also stressed that countries “get creative” and establish measures that, in his opinion, are not possible for everyone. Furthermore, this requirement does not invalidate the PCR test, unless the passenger has the complete vaccination sequence.
“If I want to travel to Venezuela, I have to take a molecular PCR test, which is the one that is accepted,” said Figuera. Adding that “INAC is becoming the authority that can deny people entry to Venezuela.”
“It is very worrying that these measures are being taken, it is the first country that requests this travel pass,” Figuera stressed.
The Biocheck automated system or “Biosafety Traveler Pass”, launched by the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics, aims to validate the passenger vaccination scheme. Which must present it at the time of entering the country. Said requirement will come into force as of August 1, 2022.
