From the Jamaica Gleaner (link here)…
The St Lucia Government says it will grant amnesty to Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nationals residing here illegally.
It said the amnesty will come into effect from January 1, 2007.
Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony said the amnesty would allow illegal Caribbean nationals, especially the large contingent of Guyanese citizens, to regularise their status once they can prove they have been residing here for more than three years.
Officials note that because many St. Lucians left here in the 1950s for Guyana to mine gold, their descendants have returned to St. Lucia taking up permanent residence.
Other Caribbean nationals including those from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica have also made St. Lucia their home.
