Venezuelan migrants wait in line to get vaccinated at the Ecuadorian Peruvian border service center, before continuing their journey, in the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru June 14. Under the new rules imposed on June 15, migrants must have passports and visas before coming to Peru - closing a door to many Venezuelans who cannot afford the fees needed to acquire them.

However, asylum seekers are not required to have passports under international law, providing poor Venezuelans with a way around the changes. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins

Just two years ago, Peru had introduced new migratory laws to accommodate Venezuelans. It doled out hundreds of thousands of special residency cards so they could work legally, go to school and access public health care.

But the tide has since turned, amid growing fears fanned by media reports and politicians that Venezuelan migrants are driving down wages and fueling crime. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins
