Guidance Note on International Protection Considerations for Venezuelans – Update I

Latest changes
  • New: LAND-UNHCR-2019-05 (2) Guidance Note on International Protection Considerations for Venezuelans – Update I (5/27/2019)

    New recommendations from United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) from May 2019 update and supersede the march 2018 UNHCR Guidance Note. Based on reports and reliable information in the public domain about the situation in Venezuela, UNHCR considers that for a number of profiles, international protection considerations are likely to arise under the 1951 Convention depending on the circumstances of the individual case. In view of the current situation in Venezuela, UNHCR calls on States to ensure Venezuelan nationals, stateless persons or individuals who were habitually resident in Venezuela will not be deported, expelled, or in any other way forced to return to Venezuela in accordance with international refugee and human rights law.
