Haiti - Social : Already 677 Haitians repatriated by Chile
Tuesday the 4th flight of the Chilean Air Force and the first of the year, took off from a military base near the international airport of Santiago (Chile) to Port-au-Prince, with on board 170 Haitian volunteers, registered in the humanitarian return plan, bringing to date to 677 the number of Haitians repatriated by Chile.

Rodrigo Ubilla, Chilean Under-Secretary of the Interior, said, "We are pursuing the program of voluntary return of Haitian citizens enrolled in a special register and, in accordance with the instructions of the President of the Republic, we are permanently helping to return to Haiti." Stating that 1,887 people were already registered for a voluntary return of which 1,805 Haitians, 46 Colombians, 12 Venezuelans, 9 Dominicans, 7 Ecuadorians, 5 Cubans, 1 Indonesian, 1 Peruvian and a Brazilian.

He confirmed that the next flight (5th) to Haiti is scheduled for January 30 with 173 Haitians on board, bringing to 850 the number of returnees, pointing out that this voluntary return plan was unprecedented "All countries do not consider as part of their migration policies aid for families or people who have entered the country and have not seen their dreams come true."

Recall that Haitians in Chile, who wish to return to Haiti at the expense of the Chilean Government, can register since 17 October 2018 on the website of the Department of Immigration : https://tramites.extranjeria.gob.cl/etapas/ejecutar/2984

To qualify for this program, Haitians must not have a legal situation in progress and they must sign a notarized declaration in which they undertake not to return to Chile in the next 9 years. If migrants have a spouse, partner or children, they must complete the process jointly and travel in groups.

Note that Chile is one of the countries that rejected the UN Global Compact for safe, orderly and regular migration.
