Hey Y’all Kuulpeeps, who have been planning on immigrating to America via the US Diversity Visa Lottery system, you better get your head in the game and apply now!
Yes, this year’s application process may well be the very last time Ghanaians and others across the world will get the opportunity to apply for the American Visa Lottery.
President Donald Trump has begun the process to cancel this programme after the terrorist attack in New York on Tuesday.
It turns out that the person accused of carrying out such monstrous acts immigrated into the US with the US Diversity Visa Lottery and now Trump is hell burnt on cancelling this programme.
Sayfullo Saipov, ploughed a rented pick-up truck into people on a pedestrian and bike path in New York. He came to the US from Uzbekistan in 2010.
The Diversity Visa Lottery is a program that distributes around 50,000 visas to countries with a low rate of immigration to the US.
“I am today, starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program. “I am going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this program,” Trump said.
In 2015, the most recent year for which data is available, Ghana, with 1.73 million people, accounted for the highest number of applicants for the US diversity visa program also known as “green card lottery”.
If you want to apply for the US Visa Lottery, this is where to do that.
The deadline is November, 22.
