Information for workers returning home to Guatemala

Unfortunately the airport in Guatemala continues to remain closed to commercial flights and will likely remain closed until the end of summer or longer. The only way for Guatemalan workers to return home is with a charter flight.

FERME, WALI’s counterpart in Quebec, has arranged a flight from Montreal to Guatemala which will depart on August 27, and has agreed to offer some seats to B.C. workers. The estimated cost for this charter flight will be $400 CAD and includes one-piece of luggage (23kg). Employers will also need to cover the flight cost from Vancouver to Montreal through Mi Tierra Holiday, as we need to process special documentation for each worker from the Government of Guatemala prior to departure.
