Over 700 Venezuelan refugees, who currently reside in TT, will be able to return home later this month on a repatriation trip organised by the Venezuelan Embassy.
These, according to the Embassy, are all Venezuelans who have asked for help to return to their country.
Many of those who want to go home are sick or unemployed here.
In a Newsday report, staff at the Embassy stated that they have already begun contacting previously registered would-be passengers.
Officials said passengers are being called in order of registration and priority and they are being notified via groups of 50 to 70 people per day to come to the Venezuelan embassy on Victoria Avenue, Port of Spain at a specific time and thus comply with the social distancing protocols for covid19.
They noted that no one is to go to the embassy if they have not been called.
The next repatriation trip, which will be via a Venezuelan ferry, is carded for mid-July and it is set to transport 700 Venezuelans home. The trip will be free.
As of Monday, more than 750 people had registered.
