NASSAU| At approximately 12:59pm today, twenty-five (25) males, nine (9) females and two (2) minors were repatriated from New Providence to Havana, Cuba. The group was escorted by a joint law enforcement team comprised of Immigration Officers and Royal Bahamas Defence Force Marines.
The Department’s deportation team led this escort onboard a Bahamasair charter flight, with all COVID-19 protocols strictly observed as the health, welfare, and safety of our officers, law enforcement counterparts, and migrants remain the highest priority in this COVID-19 environment.
The Department of Immigration expresses gratitude to the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Health & Wellness, as well as the Cuban Embassy for their usual and full cooperation.
