In a 19 page document published on the United States of America website, Nigerians have been exempted from Participating in the Visa Lottery application 2022.
The document which was titled : ‘Instructions for the 2022 diversity immigrant visa programme (dv-2022)’ stated:
“In Africa, natives of Nigeria are not eligible for this year’s Diversity Visa programme,”
“Applicants who are selected in the program (selectees) must meet simple but strict eligibility requirements to qualify for a diversity visa. The Department of State determines selectees through a randomized computer drawing. The Department of State distributes diversity visas among six geographic regions, and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year.
“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.
“Persons born in Macau SAR and Taiwan are eligible.”
