Haiti - FLASH : The new US entry program causes a rush on passport applications in Haiti
The Biden administration's new program that offers 30,000 humanitarian permits each month to Venezuelans, Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians, allowing them to legally enter the United States for up to two years on a case-by-case basis, with a sponsorship (supporter) announced last week https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38566-haiti-flash-new-us-entry-program-for-haitian-migrants-conditions-and-steps-to-follow.html caused a rush on Monday to the immigration office in Lalue and to the Directorate General of Taxes (DGI) at Avenue Christophe in order to complete the formalities to produce their passport application in the hope of integrating this new program...

The security officers of the Immigration and Emigration Service in Lalue were unable to manage the hundreds of people present on the two sidewalks of the two lanes of traffic who jostled in front of the institution yellow envelope in hand, sometimes brutally to enter... Inside in the heat of hell the number of applicants was also very important, the queues being for the most part jammed by the excess of applicants…

The National Police of Haiti had to intervene to restore order...

Common point of all these applicants, they want to leave Haiti and try their luck in this new conditional residence permit program and hope to find one or more supporters in the United States, a mandatory condition to make possible their registration for this program https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38566-haiti-flash-new-us-entry-program-for-haitian-migrants-conditions-and-steps-to-follow.html

At the DGI one could witness similar scenes where the crowd pressed and kept growing to pay the fees required for a passport stamp or a tax number.
