Haiti - FLASH : Nearly 105,000 Haitians arrived in Chile in 2017
Of the total number of Haitians who arrived in Chile in 2017, 4,669 left, or 362 more than in 2016 according to the data made available.
312 Haitians were returned after their arrival, unable to prove their tourist status, a significant decrease in forced returns, while they were 718 in 2016.
Bernardino Cárdenas, head of the prefecture of the international airport of PDI, reminds that every Haitian arriving must answer several questions "We ask them how much money he brings, how long he intends to stay, if he has a return ticket or if he has a relative in Chile..."
Because of the huge increase in this Haitian migration, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile intends to ensure better control of the entry of Haitian nationals who claim to be tourists when they arrive in the country while they have the intention to stay and work illegally in Chile recalling that if their intention is to work in Chile, there is a visa to that effect.
