The director of the National Immigration Service, Alvaro Bellolio, had words for the entry into force of the new regulation of the Migration Law. In this context, he criticized the President-elect, Gabriel Boricfor old statements on this area.
It should be noted that two weeks ago the Government removed this regulation from the Comptroller’s Office to make changes and re-enter it, being approved by the supervisory body. Today it was published in the official newspaper.

The immigration authority was in agreement with what the law proposes, but took advantage of the moment to criticize Gabriel Boric for old statements about offers to migrants.
“Do you remember that cover that said Boric offers forgiveness, the following month clandestine income doubled (…) People are waiting for forgiveness and the new authorities have given signs of that (…) A decision must be made,” said Bellolio in Radio Dune.
In addition, he also had words for the future government coalition, blaming them for encouraging migration in our country without measuring consequences.
“When the Broad Front and the Communist Party go to the TC so that there is no redirection measure for those who enter clandestinely, there is an ideological problem and it also has to do with the incentives and expectations that they have had in the last year and especially because of the statements, because they promised to resolve housing”, he added.
“Under these conditions, a migrant without a job, outbreaks of the pandemic and in a social crisis, if in Chile they promise a house and a Visa, the incentive is huge,” he said.
Travel to Cucuta
When asked about the increase in Venezuelan migrants after the President’s trip, Sebastian Pinera, to the city of Cúcuta, the director of the National Migration Service indicated that “more Venezuelans arrived before Cúcuta than after.”
The authority maintained its criticism of Approvebo Dignidad by pointing out that the incentive of houses and visas for migrants was more attractive than what Piñera proposed in Cúcuta.
New migration law regulations
The Migration Law that entered into force this day, brings with it the concept of redirection, which prohibits entry for six months to people who try to enter the country illegally.
“The regulation makes the law come into force: A new institutionality, a visa system before coming and redirection, which is when no effective entry is made and it is requested to return,” Bellolio assured.
People who entered before this regulation must make a self-report to analyze their situation, people who do not will be administratively expelled.
