In the most recent years, there has been a massive Venezuelan emigration to Santo Domingo city in Ecuador. This phenomenon has affected the local economy as well as the society of the city. This paper aims to study the economic impact of Venezuelan emigration to the city of Santo Domingo since a Neutrosophic Cognitive Map (NCM) approach. The advantage of using NCMs is that the causal relationships between the variables that influence the phenomenon under study are established and ranked in order of their importance. This allows determining which are the elements related to the Venezuelan migration to the Ecuadorian city of Santo Domingo that most impact the city economically, and if this impact is positive or negative for citizens and migrants. Finally, decision-makers will be provided with valuable information to take the necessary measures, where those favorable trends are reinforced and the unfavorable ones are reversed, always that humanitarian policies were dictated.
