After an arduous and intense work that took several weeks, the Ministry of Foreign Relations announced today the departure of 93 Costa Ricans from Peru, in a flight in which 18 Hondurans also travel.
The return flight has already left Lima and is expected to arrive on national soil in the afternoon.
Costa Ricans remained in Peru as a consequence of the measures to restrict transportation by land, sea and air, by COVID-19.
Foreign Minister Rodolfo Solano Quirós thanked the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Peru, Gustavo Meza-Cuadra, for the efforts and disposition of the Peruvian authorities that facilitated the return of Costa Ricans to the country. The trip started earlier, with the transfer of a group from Cuzco to Lima, where they boarded the flight to Costa Rica.
By tomorrow, another similar group of more than 100 people from Mexico is expected to arrive in San José, where efforts are now intensifying to bring them back to the country.
