St Vincent and the Grenadines nationals, who were ordered by a court order to leave Anguilla, will be allowed to stay on the island until activity at the La Soufrière volcano settles.
In an address to the nation today, Premier Ellis Webster revealed that Vincentians with legal status in the country will also be allowed to bring their relatives to Anguilla.
“I reaffirmed the commitment of the Government and people of Anguilla to assist in any way possible during this unprecedented time,” Webster said.
“We are and will forever be our brothers and sisters keeper.”
He urged Vincentians to contact the Home Affairs Ministry for further details.
The premier also revealed that a team is working to find accommodation for evacuees, determine quotas and develop protocols for the safe transfer of Vincentians to Anguilla.
