Thousands flee Venezuela for Peru before tougher travel restrictions take force

Latin America Correspondent

It’s been described as the worst refugee crisis in recent Latin American history – the majority of those fleeing Venezuela have crossed into neighbouring Colombia, and then on to Ecuador, Peru and Chile. Others have gone south to Brazil.

Concerned by the influx, these countries are imposing tighter border restrictions. Channel 4 News’ Guilllermo Galdos went to Peru where migrants will require a passport to enter – a luxury few in Venezuela can afford.
