The migration flux in the border region of Valle Nuevo, which is limited to El Salvador, has increased, according to the Instituto Guatemalteco de Migración (IGM), since the end of the Christmas holiday.
In response to this situation, the IGM has put in place a contingency plan in various frontier cities across the country to guarantee a safe and effective migration control for tourists wishing to enter the national territory.
In order to accomplish this goal, personnel in frontline positions have been strengthened with appropriate training, and the information system’s uninterrupted operation has been ensured. In addition, technical personnel are available to ensure the correct operation of the system. In light of this, the IGM has sent a team to strengthen the country’s migration delegations.
