A flight is being arranged for Venezuelan nationals who are interested in returning to their homeland.
A Newsday report states that the country’s authorities are “evaluating the approval of a free repatriation flight, from TT to Venezuela.”
And all interested persons should visit the Venezuelan Embassy on Victoria Avenue, Port of Spain, for an interview.
According to the report, this is all part of the “Vuelta a la Patria” (Come Home) plan that the Nicolás Maduro government put into practice in August. It is an air and land bridge for the voluntary return of all those migrants and their families who lack the means to return.
The Venezuelan Embassy is currently compiling the list of possible travellers and are waiting the confirmation of the flight by Caracas, so no date has been set.
The report, quoting a source, said “The approval of the flight is in process. It would be on a plane from the Conviasa company, which belongs to the Venezuelan state, and not through private airlines, so the tickets have no cost.”
