With one week to go before the deadline for registration, over 200 Venezuelans braved the inclement weather in Tobago yesterday and turned up at the Caroline Building Registration Centre in Scarborough, Tobago, in an attempt to get away from the long lines at the two locations in Trinidad.
This is the first time Tobago has seen such an influx, since the registration process commenced nine days ago.Since the start of the registration process, Tobago has not seen any figures exceeding 40 migrants on a daily basis.
