Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.

That is true, but it has nothing to do with the political situation or government restrictions directly. Embassy staffing is currently very low, and therefore the Venezuelan Embassy website tells first-time applicants not to pay the application fee or to try and make an appointment as they are not able to provide appointments for first time visitors.

You can read the website information here.

If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to assist.Otherwise, kindly remember to leave me a positive rating by clicking on the stars, so that I am credited for my time and information today. Thank you!

Is there anything that can be done??
Immigration Lawyer: RobertJDFL, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Unfortunately, it does not appear that way -only the Embassy can issue the tourist Visa. The government gives no indication on their website either as to when this staffing issue may be resolved -whether it is a month, 6 months, etc. Your friend may want to call the Embassy there directly and see if they can give them any idea as to when first time applicants may be able to get appointments again.
