Venezuela ratifies commitment with migrants

Venezuela today ratified its commitment to guarantee identity documents and travel to those who are abroad, an official source reported.

The Ministry of People’s Power for Foreign Relations and the Administrative Service for Identification, Migration and Immigration (Saime), held a meeting to address the issue, in order to guarantee the constitutional right to identity of all Venezuelans.

The meeting was chaired by the head of diplomacy, Carlos Faría, and the general director of Saime, Gustavo Vizcaíno.

At the meeting, the officials designed a work agenda that will strengthen the process of identifying nationals in the world, according to a published note.

The text indicates that despite the recent attacks against the Saime computer system, which caused a delay in responses to applicants, the Executive will guarantee identity and travel documents to these people.

It specifies that since last August 11, this body has sent a total of 5,464 travel documents, mainly to the Caribbean, Europe and Asia and Oceania, in that order.

Recent data revealed that the Plan Vuelta a la Patria (Return to the Homeland), promoted by President Nicolás Maduro, benefited more than 29,000 Venezuelans from 22 countries in its four years.

This initiative to support migrant nationals abroad who do not have their own means to return is framed in the new Bolivarian Peace Diplomacy.

The authorities celebrate “the triumph of peace diplomacy”, with a high social and preventive content, which is materialized thanks to the work of a multidisciplinary and inter-institutional team that provides comprehensive care to those who face different contingencies and situations outside national borders.

This policy makes it possible to attend to the victims of the “immigration situational process” derived from the coercive, unilateral and illegal measures applied against Venezuela, which impact socioeconomic conditions and generate a crisis in public services, the Foreign Ministry said days ago.
