Yahoo! en Español has launched Nuevo País, Nueva Vida, a new web site on Yahoo! Noticias designed to simplify the immigration experience for millions of Hispanics living in the U.S. In collaboration with Western Union, Nuevo País, Nueva Vida provides educational information about the immigration process through editorial articles, slideshows, videos, and more.
Users can find news and opinions from legal experts and Yahoo!s seasoned editors on topics such as obtaining permanent residency, requesting a tourist visa, securing healthcare and other insurance coverage, and creating a budget to live in the U.S. The site also features advice and tools on how to support and connect with family and friends back home.
We are always thinking about how to better serve the daily habits of our Hispanic users, and a collection of resources on immigration topics and tips on how to succeed in the U.S. was a natural addition to Yahoo! en Español, said Javier Garcia, General Manager of Yahoo! U.S. Hispanic. We are excited to work with Western Union and hope that, together, we will help inspire and empower people to improve their lives.
Were very excited to help launch this go-to immigration resource, said Laston Charriez, senior vice president of marketing, Americas, Western Union. It has something for everyone, including breaking news, information on new laws, a blog with useful immigration tips, videos and so much more.
