Working in Venezuela

Employment Information

Venezuela’s average working hours are 40 hours per week, however overtime opportunities are available. Most employees take 2 days of rest per week.

Employees in Venezuela are entitled to 15 days of paid holiday following a year of continuous service, this increases by one additional day for each year of service thereafter. There is no official guidance on sick leave, however employees can take leave for as many days as is prescribed by their doctor. The social security system will reimburse sick pay for any leave exceeding four days.

New mothers are entitled to 6 weeks maternity leave before the birth of the child, and 20 weeks after. Fathers are also entitled to 14 days of continuous leave following the birth of the child. Parents receive a two-year prohibition of dismissal following the birth of a child.

Employers and employees in Venezuela must both contribute to the country’s social security system. The nation’s income tax rate is progressive and varies from 0 to 34% depending on an employee’s earnings.

For expatriates, a working visa application must be submitted before starting work in Venezuela.

Before relocating, it is highly recommended to be advised by labor experts. Currently, and due to inflation, salaries are low (compared to other nations in South America), however they have been rising steadily over recent years.

This allows companies to establish themselves at low costs and to take advantage of opportunities for the medium and long term, as well as to use telecommuting to attract highly trained personnel.

Cultural Information

Venezuela’s culture is defined by its welcoming and friendly nature. The dominant religious group is Catholic, and Spanish is the official language. The nation has a moderate but growing level of English-speaking proficiency, particularly in areas which receive more tourism.

Venezuela’s diverse cuisine is one to be admired, including delights such as the pabellón criollo, el asado negro, stuffed arepas and empañadas, and delicious hallacas.

Impacts from COVID-19

Venezuela implemented a range of preventative measures to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of 2022, the restrictions have mostly been lifted and the country has started moving back towards normality. Remote and teleworking practices have continued to remain in certain sectors, and this area is expected to grow over years to come.


Please be advised that all candidates selected for a position in Venezuela will undergo a comprehensive due diligence process in compliance with current international banking regulations.
