Yoani Sanchez: ‘I’ll visit Argentina after receiving the visa’
Argentina, February 20, 2013
The Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez said that “in the coming hours, she will have a visa to enter Argentina and attributed the delays to “bureaucratic issues” in her country.
The scale will be in Buenos Aires as part of the tour that Sanchez, author of the blog ‘Generation Y’, initiated in Brazil and will continue for other countries in America and Europe, thanks to immigration reform put into effect last month, which eliminated travel restrictions for Cubans abroad.
“There are very good news,” Sanchez said this morning when asked for her visa to visit Argentina.
In that sense, in an interview with Radio Del Plata, the blogger said: “After initial delays, because the Argentine consulate in Havana is in high demand on the visa, yesterday I called the Argentine ambassador to Brazil (Luis Maria Kreckler ) and told me that there is no problem and that during the day today I’ll have my visa stamped in the passport. “
“In Havana, perhaps because bureaucratic issues, it was difficult in the time I have to organize the visa,” she said before traveling to Brasilia, where today she’ll continue with her activities.
Asked if she’ll finally come to visit Argentina, Yoani Sanchez replied: “Yes, I will go. I did not make my schedule yet, but I have the illusion that I will soon be there. “
Moreover, referring to the aim of her tour, the renowned blogger of 37 years said: “I have an academic reason and I have a professional interest, journalism, which is to write about what I see and learn of journalism to bring the experiences to Cuba.”
