Requesting a CADIVI Letter
What is a CADIVI?
CADIVI (Comision de Administracion de Divisas, or Commission for the Administration of Currency Exchange) is the the Venezuelan government body which administers currency exchange. Commercial banks and other authorized exchange agents in Venezuela are required to obtain authorization from CADIVI in order to trade Bolivares Fuertes (VEF) into U.S. dollars (USD). For more information, see www.cadivi.gob.ve . Students must provide multiple documents to CADIVI in order to benefit from a favorable exchange rate. If CADIVI approves the request, funds can be transferred at a favorable exchange rate. If CADIVI denies the request or the process is delayed, the student is responsible for finding alternative means of payment.
