The socialist government—despite severe illegal US sanctions—has promoted the Plan Vuelta a la Patria program since 2018 to facilitate the travel, at no charge, of fellow Venezuelans wishing to return home permanently. Many are fleeing xenophobia and acts of violence in countries such as Ecuador, Peru and Colombia, among others.
