Some 1,200 Costa Ricans experience the crisis developed in Venezuela since the beginning of April, when the clash between the government of Nicolás Maduro and his opposition increased.
Without specifying the conditions in which they live, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that
the circumstances of life are complex… The limitations on the quantity and variety of food or medicines that can be obtained in the market, or the particular security circumstances in the cities, are variable for all the residents,”
stated the Foreign Ministry.
Therefore, the Costa Rican Consulate in Venezuela “is attentive” to provide information via email, telephone and social networks.
Other Costa Ricans who have expressed their interest in living in Costa Rica, including some who have never visited the country, have been given information about the procedures that must be carried out,”
the ministry added via e-mail after consultations in this medium.
Due to the territorial extension of Venezuela, which is 17 times greater than Costa Rica, the Consulate has strengthened the use of technological tools, which has produced good results.
An updated base of e-mails is maintained through which a network of periodic submissions of information on matters of interest has been established,”
According to the most recent report, the clash between the government and the opposition has left 49 people dead and hundreds injured during demonstrations.
The Costa Rican government, the majority of legislators and the Latin American region have demonstrated against the administration of Nicolás Maduro.
