Most illegal Venezuelans enter the island legally

Coast Guard_illegalsWILLEMSTAD - The flow of people from Venezuela to the ABC islands is limited. That is what the Dutch ministers of Kingdom Relations and Internal Affairs Ronald Plasterk say in a letter to the Dutch House of Representatives.

In the first six months of this year, the Coast Guard intercepted 122 migrants. But The Hague also says that most Venezuelans just come by plane on a tourist visa and then stay on the island illegally.

The authorities do not have the exact number of that group of Venezuelans.
