Plan Vuelta a la Patria adds 276 returnees from the Dominican Republic
From the Dominican Republic arrived on Saturday a flight with 90 nationals who requested their return to the nation through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria.
The repatriates were received at the Maiquetía Simón Bolívar International Airport, in the Vargas state, by the president of the Venezuelan Consortium of Aeronautical Industries and Air Services (Conviasa), Ramón Velásquez Araguayan.
Velásquez reported on Saturday that a total of 12,750 Venezuelans have returned to the country through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria and that 41.6% of returnees have entered Venezuelan territory by air.
The Plan Vuelta a la Patria aims to support Venezuelans who emigrated, but who after encountering an adverse reality in other nations and being victims of xenophobic actions now wish to return to Venezuela, with the premise of studying, working for peace and the socio-economic prosperity of the nation.
This program includes three phases: the registration in the program, the logistics operation, the transfer to Venezuela and the insertion in the social protection system carried out by the National Government.
