More than 560,000 Venezuelans have arrived in Peru. The vast majority are entering by land through the Ecuadorian border. Over 156,000 have applied for refugee status.

While the Peruvian government has been generous, the increased arrivals require additional measures. Host communities with already limited resources and infrastructure are in need of additional support.

UNHCR has set up a permanent presence in Peru with offices in Lima, Tumbes and Tacna, to complement and strengthen government’s efforts.

HIGHLIGHTS

25 Nov 2018 description

Tumbes is the main entry point of Venezuelans crossing into Peru. In the first weeks of November, 1,250 people entered Peru. Since 23 October, the number of arrivals to Peru substantially increased as the entry deadline to apply for the Temporary Stay Permit (PTP) neared (31 October).

During the past months, Venezuelans entering Peru are doing so in more vulnerable conditions than at the beginning of the year. Many families are traveling on foot for over 15 days, in contrast to the bus trip that they could afford before.
