The Peruvian government has announced it would include 134 million soles for the ‘protection’ of three million Peruvians living abroad, in the 2013 budget.

Andean Parliament member Hildebrando Tapia said the funds would increase the resources available to Peruvians abroad.

The additional funds, he said, would also help provide legal advice to expats, and would increase their stability, Peru21 reported.

According to a recent survey carried out by Spain’s Social Affairs Council, over 40 percent of Peruvians living in Madrid want to return to Peru.

In the last quarter of 2011, more than 1,500 Peruvians left Spain, after an economic crisis that has left about 1 out of every 4 Spanish citizens unemployed.

Last July Tapia had urged the Andean Parliament to aid expats with their return to Peru.

"A worthy plan for return and for social reintegration must be created. They must be helped to settle into the workplace […],” Tapia said, according to Andina.
