Venezuela's Foreign Ministry reported on Monday that over 200 citizens returned to the country on a flight from Chile as part of the Return to the Homeland Plan.
According to Venezuelan authorities, 216 Venezuelans arrived Monday to the Maiquetía International Airport in the Northern state of La Guaira. Moreover, another 120 returned from Argentina on Sunday night. The Foreign Ministry detailed that these Venezuelans "were stranded and in a vulnerable situation" as a result of the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
