An important group of extra-continental migrants entered Costa Rica between Sunday and Monday through Paso Canoas.
There were 43 migrants from Nepal, 21 from Eritrea, three from Sri Lanka, eight from Congo and five from Angola.
The health status of each of these people is being checked.
Costa Rica suffered a migratory crisis in late 2015 and throughout 2016, first with the Cubans and then with Haitians and Africans who caused the government to mobilize a large number of staff to the border and also set up shelters, some of which continue working.
The migratory flow has been constant, but controlled, with 50 people per day, according to the figures of the Executive Power.
These 80 migrants received a transit visa for 25 days. Then they have to leave the country.
