Punctuality in Venezuela
“Better to be late than never” is common saying in Venezuela when it comes to punctuality. Being early or on time can even be viewed as rude. It’s recommended that you arrive later than the requested time when invited to someone’s home or else you may seem too eager or even greedy.
Be punctual for business meetings, but be prepared to wait for your Venezuelan counterparts as the pace of business is relaxed, easy-going and informal. Delays are common.
