Progress starts repatriating residents

The repatriation of residents of the island will start shortly. Initially, efforts were made to receive the first repatriates from the Netherlands on April 14th, however, this is not possible due to logistical difficulties. No concrete date has yet been confirmed for a replacement flight. Although we are working hard to realize the flight in the coming days. There are many factors that influence this matter. The possibilities are currently being explored by the Task Force in charge of implementing the repatriation and will be submitted to the EBT.


As indicated earlier, the first tranche of returnees will consist of people who have a vital occupation. Those people will be informed personally by telephone these days that they will be on this first flight. When more is certain about the flight date and details, these will also be informed personally.
