Humanitarian situation and needs:
Venezuela faces a major political, economic and social crisis, with hyperinflation, acute scarcity of food, medicine and other basic goods and one of the world’s highest murder rates. During widespread protests against Maduro’s government, dozens of opposition demonstrators have been killed. The July 2017 election of an all-powerful Constituent Assembly closed down almost all remaining democratic spaces, sparking widespread condemnation in the region and around the world. In recent years, almost 2.3 million people left Venezuela to live, mostly, in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, and Chile. In the short term, migration places significant pressures on the provision of services, institutions, labor markets and the social dynamics of the receiving areas, affecting most the vulnerable populations in both the migrant and local communities.
Colombia hosts the largest number of Venezuelan migrants (1.2 million), 750 000 on the first nine month of 2018. Amongst them, 24% are nationals who are returning to their home country. Between 70,000 and 80,000 Venezuelan citizens cross the border with Colombia every day. While most return to their country the same day, others stay in Colombia. On 2 August, 442,000 Venezuelans were granted a Special Stay Permit (PEP) providing them legal status for two years.
In absolute terms, Bogotá is the city with the largest number of migrants. However, in relative terms, the border areas (Norte de Santander, Arauca and Guajira) are the most affected, with the migrants representing between 2.5% and 5% of the population. These regions have development lags, which limits their ability to absorb migrants.
In early February, the Colombian government tightened entry restrictions and security along the border with Venezuela, deploying an additional 3,000 security personnel, and temporarily halted the processing of new border mobility cards. Increased traffic along illegal border crossing routes has been reported since entry restrictions changed. Armed groups control many illegal crossing points, which leads to protection concerns for people using these crossings.
New policies implemented by other Latin American countries will likely worsen the situation in Colombia. Since 18 August, Ecuadorian authorities demand that all Venezuelans must hold a valid passport to enter the country. The same measure was to be implemented from 25 August in Peru. Other countries, such as Panama, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador, had already started to implement a special visa policy for Venezuelans. Colombian authorities are concerned that these new policies will lead to an increase in human trafficking, tensions with host communities, and general insecurity.
