Costa Rica has been alert to the constant migration of Africans, Cubans and Haitians who want to enter the country illegally.
According to government data, 150 people arrive in the country every day.
The Ministry of the Interior and Police informed that just in August, the Department of Immigration has rejected the entry of 239 Cubans, who were returned to Panama.
Most of them entered through Paso Canoas border post and Sabalito.
Cuban people should have a visa to enter the country and those who do not meet the relevant requirements won’t be able to be in our the territory. By doing this, we are promoting a safe migration,
declared in a press release Gisela Yockchen, director-general of the Department of Immigration.
