How many Venezuelans have returned to their country since Nicolas Maduro said he would help them?
According to the head of Migrations, there are Venezuelans who returned to their country under the plan “Back to the homeland” arranged by Nicolás Maduro.
In order for Venezuelan citizens to return to their country, President Nicolas Maduro launched the new repatriation plan “Back to the Fatherland”. However, the expected impact did not emerge.
According to the head of the National Superintendence of Migrations, Eduardo Sevilla to the Andean Agency, said that only 0.05% of the total of the 437,000 who are in the country have returned to Venezuela.
He also commented that the program announced a few weeks ago has not had the welcome with which the president of Venezuela communicated, because so far only 190 Venezuelans have returned to their country.
“In a single day they enter six times more than all the citizens who have repatriated to date (…) we should have no less than 45 flights a week from Lima to Caracas, in order to match the number of those who wish to leave versus that of those who want to enter, “said Sevilla Echevarría.
Meanwhile, he said that thousands of Venezuelan citizens are coming to Migration offices to request their Temporary Permit of Permanence (PTP) and work legally in the country.
The head of the National Superintendence of Migration also explained the recent boost that has had the immigration regulation of Venezuelan citizens in Peru.
To date, 94,000 Venezuelan citizens have the PTP, 110,000 have already made the process and are close to obtaining it, in addition 130,000 have appointments to manage that permit.
“They are people who exist with first and last name, who seek to voluntarily regularize their situation in Peru,” said Eduardo Sevilla.
