Venezuela stops sending of remittances to Colombia

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

The Venezuelan government suspended for an indefinite period the sending of family remittances to people living in Colombia.

The prohibition against sending money outside Venezuela to relatives in Colombia will remain in effect "until the mechanism and the new conditions applicable for that end are put in place," a Venezuelan government announcement said.

The measure comes four days after a meeting between the foreign ministers of Venezuela and Colombia, Elias Jaua and Maria Angela Holguin, respectively, which culminated with the signing of a series of accords to fight smuggling and other illicit activities.
