Refugees and migrants continue to leave Venezuela and arrive in the Caribbean with increasing protection and emergency assistance needs. Venezuelans are seeking international protection, fleeing repression and/or looking for ways to re-establish their lives abroad, as the economic and political crisis deepens, and shortages of essential goods and services continue inside Venezuela. The increased number of Venezuelans arriving in the Caribbean requires capacity-building and emergency preparedness support to host governments, and ongoing protection and assistance delivery to people of concern - directly or through partners. With the expectation that by the end of 2020 some 157,000 Venezuelans with possible international protection needs will be staying in the Caribbean, UNHCR will further strengthen its operations in particular in the Southern part of the region.

In the United States of America, additional executive orders, regulations, and policies limiting access to territory and to the asylum system were issued in 2018 and 2019. In 2020, increasing arrivals of asylum-seekers from the NCA and Venezuela are anticipated to continue, placing pressure on the Government’s and NGOs’ reception capacity. Despite a difficult protection environment, UNHCR expects to maintain positive relationships with key government counterparts, finding spaces of collaboration especially around building of regional asylum capacity. With regards to the situation at the border between the United states of America and Mexico, new opportunities for meaningful UNHCR cross-border engagement will continue to grow as UNHCR expands its operations and protection presence in Mexico.
