Also called non-resident work visa. This type of visa is issued to those persons who are going to work in Venezuela under a contract. The company or employer in Venezuela must initiate the procedures for requesting the work permit from the Ministry of Labour and the corresponding visa with the Ministry of Interior and Justice.

Non-resident work visas are valid for one year, with multiple entries and a length of stay of one year.

They can be extended inside the country by the Ministry of the Interior and Justice for an equal period, subject to confirmation of the work permit by the Ministry of Labor.
