[Correspondence] Migration of Venezuelans to Colombia

In June, 2018, the first register of irregular migrants who moved from Venezuela to Colombia was officially presented.1 The results showed that more than 800 000 migrants currently live in Colombia. Since the foundation of both countries, economic and cultural relationships favoured the free transit of people;2 however, massive migration is an unprecedented occurrence in Colombia.3 As a result of long standing social conflict, the Colombian authorities have ample experience in dealing with displaced people but close to none in relation to transnational migration.
