This web-based platform called “Suramérica Abierta” is aimed at ensuring that migrants, governments and key actors in the region access reliable and timely information on human mobility, and health measures.
“Suramérica Abierta” shares comprehensive information on the measures implemented, including border restrictions, quarantine requirements, and COVID-19 testing for migrants and travelers in the region. By providing critical information from reliable sources, the web platform and mobile application seek to combat misinformation and facilitate migration and mobility in the region.
This regional project was developed during the Pro Tempore Presidency of the Argentine Republic of the MERCOSUR Specialized Migration Forum and the South American Conference on Migration, and has the support of the United Nations International Organization for Migration.
The initiative shows the positive results that the synergy between MERCOSUR and the CSM can have, to favor a safe, orderly and regular migration with the hope that we will soon recover the Open South America that we always live.
