SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- July 15, 2013

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.”

“We’re 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.”

Nuevo País, Nueva Vida is available via desktop computers and mobile phones on
Yahoo! en Español (http://es-us.noticias.yahoo.com/nuevo-pais-vida/)
