    The Costa Rican News (TCRN) – The government of Costa Rica has introduced an immigration policy that will be implemented over the next ten years in order to control migratory flows and ensure respect for the human rights of foreigners in the country.

    The Costa Rican Vice Minister of the Interior who governs immigration issues, Freddy Montero, said while presenting the policy that it is unique instrument in the Americas that was built from the “bottom-up” with the participation of civil society.

    This instrument aims to promote joint actions between the various institutions of the country to meet the requirements of immigration issues, ensuring effective control and respect for the human rights of immigrants.

    The objectives of the policy include the simplification of immigration procedures, improving levels of migration regularization and the control of entry, stay, and departure of people in the country.

    It also aims to strengthen immigration control points, promote better working conditions and respect for labor rights of immigrants and refugees, as well as facilitating access to health services and education.

    Other points of the policy are to promote the social integration of immigrants, strengthening the fight against trafficking and smuggling of migrants and the protection of victims.

    The representative of the Ministry of Planning to the Board, Laura Fernandez, said that although the policy is ready, they still must finalize the action plan that set goals, clear objectives and funding for each institution involved over the next ten years.

    Official data for the year 2011 indicates that in Costa Rica at least 385,900 people are immigrants, representing 9% of the total population. (ACAN-EFE)
