The official explained that so far in 2017 there are also indications of "a trend of that immigration of Cuban returnees, some who have been away for many years, and foreigners who decide to establish their residence in Cuba."

Of all ages

He added that among those resettled in the country there are people of all ages and sexes, with a preponderance over the age of 50, and most of them settled in Havana.
