Nigeria Is The Only African Country Barred From 2022 US Visa Lottery

Nigeria has been barred from the US visa lottery application for 2022, a document obtained from the US Government website showed.

In a 19-page document published on the website, Nigeria is the only African country barred from the visa lottery.

“For DV-2022, persons born in the following countries are not eligible to apply, because more than, 50,000 natives of these countries immigrated to the United States in the previous five years: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (including Hong Kong SAR), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam,” the document read. “Persons born in Macau SAR and Taiwan are eligible.”

Although natives of other African countries are allowed to apply, the document explained that “persons born in the areas administered prior to June 1967 by Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt are chargeable, respectively, to Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt,” it said.

“Persons born in the Gaza Strip are chargeable to Egypt; persons born in the West Bank are chargeable to Jordan; persons born in the Golan Heights are chargeable to Syria.”

In the document captioned “Instructions for the 2022 diversity immigrant visa program (dv-2022),” applicants must meet certain guidelines to be eligible for the visa lottery.

“The Department of State determines selectees through a randomized computer drawing,” the statement added.

“The Department of State distributes diversity visas among six geographic regions, and no single country may receive more than seven per cent of the available DVs in any one year.”

You are not any different from your so called leaders, the youths of yesterday are the leaders today, the youths today are the leaders of tomorrow, you can never run away from yourself, Christ best said it, a bad tree can never yield good fruits.

What do you expect when things are getting worse by the day. Insecurity everywhere despite the huge sum budgeted every year on security.The United States openly declared Bokoharam insurgency as State-sponsored terrorism, what they are implying is that people in government have hand in it. Instead of them to cry out for help, they labelled them "bandits". It's such a pity how low we have gone as a nation.

If Nigerians don't wake up and demand an end to this madness of nepotism, corruption, insecurity etc., even Togo, Benin Republic will ban Nigerians from entering their country.

Homeboiy:
Nigeria has been on ban since the last 4 yrs because Nigeria has reached the 50000 visa lottery of USA

It’s not about the bad government of Buhari
it's about bad governance because if things were ok here, Nigeria won't have been reaching the green card quota consistently over the last 15 to 20 years. Evil government back to back to back is the problem, including Buhari regime


ProfAmaben:
Let them ban us, no problem. If the great grandparents of the United States citizens ran away from their country, America won't be great today.

We die here!
