The Chilean Government recognizes the importance of Haitian workers to their economy. They are encouraging more immigration of Haitian citizens with the establishment of a family reunification program that has been in place since July 2, 2018.
How does it works?
The application process begins in Chile where the Haitian citizen living and working there must write a certified letter requesting family reunification. Then, the applicant in Chile needs to contact the office of the International Organization for Migration (IOM in Haiti) to follow up.
Here is how to contact IOM in Haiti:

Mezanmi, Ayisyen se yon ti pep ki pale anpil oui. Depi lotrejou, anpil Ayisyen ap kouri bri di Premye minis Ayisyen-an, Laurent Lamothe, pa Ayisyen; min plito se yon Chilyen
One thing I know about my people is that we Haitian talk about everything and anything. Sometime, we even talk about things that do not exist.
The last commotion has to do with the nationality of the Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe. Now there is a rumor letting people know that he does not have Haitian nationality. Some people are suggesting that he is of Chilean nationality instead
This is new in Haitian politic. A seating Senator went in front of the Parliament of another country to complaint about his own executive branch of government. Senator Simon Dieuseul Desras went before the Parliament of Chile to complaint about Michel Martelly.
Senator Simon Dieuseul Desras Ale en Chili Pou li mande Ed ak Matador Sipeb Sa Yo bay pou Matelly-a
Talking about sovereignty. It does not exist anymore
" Si martelly Gin Blan Pa-li, Pouki sa Senate Paka Gin blan pa li Tou"
History of Haitian migration is pretty old. While millions cross the borders to become permanent residents of other countries, there are millions others who ride the same ferry but only to return after some time. Millions of Haitian people migrate and settle in Bahamas, Montreal in Canada, Cancun and Mexico City in Mexico, Cuba, United States and Dominican Republic. Other countries like French Guiana, French Antilles, France, Senegal, Cote d'Ivoire, Chile, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos and Jamaica also have vast numbers of Haitian diaspora.
As of date, it is estimated that around 1.2 million Haitian people live in U.S. with proper documents while there are many others that have entered U.S. borders illegally. Canada is reported to have 200,000 Haitians while Dominican Republic is estimated to have 2 million Haitians. Bahamas accounts for 80,000 Haitians while the reported figure for France is 90,000.
A massive 8.8 earthquake struck Chile in the early morning hours on Saturday. Close to 100 times more powerful than the Haitian earthquake.
On January 12, 2010 at 16:53 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred in Haiti. Televangelist Pat Robertson said immediately after the Haiti earthquake that earthquake-ravaged Haiti has been "cursed" by a "pact to the devil."
"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," he said on Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club." "They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French. True story. And so, the devil said, okay it's a deal."
