The Canadian government on Monday reached an agreement to allow Venezuelans residing in Canada to stay in the country even if their passports have expired, as the government will recognize Venezuela’s passports for up to five years after they expire.

With millions of Venezuelans pouring out of the country, questions of identification and verification of documents face immigrants and host governments alike, and the Venezuelan consulates have left many citizens in a stalemate, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

In Canada, some Venezuelans who came to the country with legal study visas found themselves unable to continue their studies or graduation because they could not update their required documents, including passports, while others with permanent residency suffered disruption of their citizenship procedures due to the suspension of their documents.

Canada’s Immigration Department said the decision basically recognizes the resolution passed on June 7 by the opposition-dominated Venezuelan National Assembly, which extends the validity of expired travel documents and passports.

Venezuela is in a severe political crisis, with Western society refusing to recognize Nicolas Maduro as president, while recognizing opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president.
