MARTINO, Andressa Alves  and  MOREIRA, Julia Bertino. The Brazilian migration policy for Venezuelans: from the temporary residence permit to the refuge “label” (2017-2019). REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.60, pp.151-166.  Epub Dec 09, 2020. ISSN 2237-9843.

Based on Roger Zetter's theoretical-conceptual contribution about the process of labelling immigrants, this article aims to discuss the “labels” that were implemented to manage the current Venezuelan immigration to Brazil in the period from 2017 to 2019. To do so, we used documentary research and analyzed temporary residence permits (Resolução Normativa nº 126 and Portaria Interministerial nº 9) and the recognition of refugee status grounded on gross and generalized violation of human rights. We conclude that Venezuelans have transitioned between different “labels” mobilized by government bureaucratic institutions - as a temporary resident and asylum seeker to refugee - this occurred, especially, from the latest changes in Brazilian foreign policy guidelines.

Keywords : venezuelan immigration; Brazil; refuge; migratory categories.
