Dominican cruise passengers refused permission to disembark
A group of Dominicans who arrived in Antigua as tourists on the Zenith cruise ship from Pullmantur on Monday 26 December 2016 were prevented from entering the country, as the island’s Migration authorities said that other Dominicans had stayed there illegally following disembarkation on previous occasions.
Former senator Santiago Batista, who is in Antigua, said that the cruise had stopped at St. Martin, St. Lucia and Barbados but that when they arrived in Antigua, the Dominican passengers were prevented from disembarking.
Batista also called on Dominican Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas Maldonado to go to the assistance of several Dominicans who are stranded in Antigua.
