Nigeria only African country barred from 2022 US visa lottery

Nigerians have been barred from participating in the United States’ Visa lottery in 2022.

This was contained in a document obtained from the US’ website on Thursday.

The 19-page document was titled ‘Instructions for the 2022 diversity immigrant visa program (dv-2022)’.

“In Africa, natives of Nigeria are not eligible for this year’s Diversity Visa program,” the document stated.

It stated that Nigeria was barred because more than 50,000 of its citizens immigrated to the United States in the previous five years.
