RIO DE JANEIRO (BDCi) – According to local media reports, tens of thousands of Argentinean fans have remained in Brazil, two weeks after the end of the 2014 World Cup.
While some of them sell handicrafts or juggle in the streets for cash, Brazilian officials are worried about the Argentineans relying on government social services meant for poor Brazilians.
Some say the borders may have been too relaxed during the soccer event, as Argentineans do not require a vise or a passport to enter the country, just a government ID card.
Argentine consular officials have been present to try and facilitate return transportation for those who ran out of money or whose documents were lost or stolen, but few were interested in their government’s help.
