First Cuban migrant flight to leave Costa Rica next week

First Cuban migrant flight to leave Costa Rica next week

SAN JOSE (Reuters) – The first flight for Cuban migrants stranded in
Costa Rica will leave on Tuesday, the Central American country’s foreign
minister said on Wednesday.

A group of around 180 people will be able to leave on a flight to El
Salvador on Tuesday evening, they will then have ground transportation
to the Guatemala-Mexico border, Manuel Gonzalez, Costa Rica’s foreign
minister said.

Subsequent flights from Costa Rica will depend on the success of this one.

The flow of migrants from Cuba has surged as the process of a detente
between Washington and Havana stirs fears that preferential U.S. asylum
rights for Cubans may soon end.

Costa Rica’s government stopped issuing transit visas to Cubans in
December as Nicaragua, which is a close ally of Cuba, shut its borders
to them in November.

Since then, the number of Cuban migrants stuck in limbo inside Costa
Rica’s northern border with Nicaragua has grown steadily. An estimated
8,000 Cubans are now stuck there.
