Between 2014 and 2018, some 282,180 asylum claims have been lodged by Venezuelans, over 113,000 in 2017 alone. While refugee procedures are overwhelmed, 5,661 have been recognized as refugees thus far.

The majority of Venezuelans who have left their country have no regular status, and are therefore more vulnerable to any form of exploitation, abuse, violence, trafficking and discrimination.

Thousands continue leave Venezuela daily and legally enter in neighbouring countries. UNHCR is stepping up its response accordingly.

Import restrictions and hyperinflation reduce availability and access to basic goods and services.

Thousands of Venezuelans are crossing the borders daily into neighbouring countries in search of safety. Displaced by scarcity of food and medicines, but also because of violence and persecution, the growing numbers of Venezuelans fleeing their country are putting massive pressure on the region.
Over 4 million Venezuelans have fled to find safety in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Aruba, Curacao and Spain over the past 4 years. Neighbouring countries are overwhelmed and overstretched by the influx of Venezuelans.
