The massification of the phenomenon of refugees around the world, with 68.5 million people in this condition, being 16.2 million in 2017, demonstrates that the persecution for reasons of race, social group, gender, armed conflicts and the deterioration of human rights that this freedom, equality, dignity, protection of the family and others, are being deprived of a large portion of the world population which, in addition to these factors there are health issues such as depression, post-traumatic disorders, psychotic outbreaks and others. In Brazil, it is observed the same phenomenon. The objective of this work was to present the information requests and recognition of requests for refuge in Brazil during the years 2017 and 2018. The method adopted was the bibliographic research and exploratory. The results indicate an increase of 58% of requests in 2018, on account of the problems faced by Venezuela, which saw its economy wither away with the reduction in the price of oil in the years 2008 to 2015, along with this the political problems and the rentier capital. The affected regions in Brazil are the states of Roraima and Amazonas, on account of the motto with this country, but it is quite challenging the inclusion of this population in such a way that have their rights recognized, because of the 80 thousand applications in 2018, being 77% from Venezuela, only 1% was accepted. This work serves as support for public policies that must seek alternatives to comply with the legislation in such a way that guarantees the fundamental rights to this population, allowing the freedom, equality, dignity, housing, education and right to life.  The need for guarantee of human rights, makes this study can be used by organizations so that they can integrate these people culturally and professionally.
