Venezuelan migrants in Brazil
In recent months, the number of Venezuelan migrants trying to enter the United States through its southern border has increased rapidly. Over the last eleven months, US authorities had more than 199,500 encounters with Venezuelans at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Later on, many Venezuelan migrants also tried to enter Brazil through its northern border. The government in Brazil relocated over 114,000 people, or about a quarter of the Venezuelans who have come to the country since 2018, to the south.
According to the United Nations, over 800,000 Venezuelans have come to Brazil in recent years. They have received medical attention, food, and new opportunities in the country.
When the migrants crossed the northern border of Brazil, they received overnight accommodation, food, protection, and hygiene services.
Brazil is a first choice for many Venezuelans because of the country’s five-year-old program that offers eligible migrants work permits and free flights. In recent months, Brazil sent thousands of Venezuelan migrants to the country’s rich southern states.
