“Starting from November 1, you will have to pay for a passport in Petro, the issuance of a new passport will cost two Petro, and one Petro will be renewed,” Rodriguez told reporters.
The cost of a new passport to Venezuelan Venezuela citizens, who are currently abroad, will cost $ 200 until November 1, and a passport extension of $ 100.

It is planned that from November 5, the internal cryptocurrency will be sold for sovereign bolivars.
The government of Venezuela on August 20 began a denomination in the country. In the course of it, five zeros were removed from the banknotes and a new currency, a sovereign bolivar, was tied to Petro.
From September 1, the minimum wage in the country was raised tenfold: up to 1.8 thousand sovereign Bolivars (180 million at the old rate) or 0.5 Petro.
