Venezuelans Rush to Cross Peru Border to Beat Tough Migration Laws

A large number of Venezuelans have raced to cross the Peru border in an effort to beat the tough migration laws. Under new laws presented on Saturday, Venezuelans need identification and visa to enter Peru.

Officials state around 6,000 Venezuelans crossed from neighboring Ecuador alone on Thursday, multiple times daily. Somewhere in the range of four million individuals have fled Venezuela since 2015, as indicated by the United Nations.

The nation’s imploding economy has brought about high joblessness and deficiencies of food and water, and a huge number of individuals are said to be needing humanitarian aid.

Beforehand, Venezuelan natives who needed to enter Peru just required a national ID card. Latin American nations have by far most of the Venezuelan migrants. Colombia has the most at 1.3 million, trailed by Peru with 768,000, as indicated by UN figures.
