    Nigeria is the only African nation not invited to participate this year, as per the guidelines of the 2023 USA Diversity Visa lottery program.

    Citizens of the following countries are not eligible to apply for DV-2023

    • Bangladesh
    • Brazil
    • Canada
    • China
    • Colombia
    • Dominican Republic
    • El Salvador
    • Haiti
    • Honduras
    • India
    • Jamaica
    • Mexico
    • Nigeria
    • Pakistan
    • Philippines
    • South Korea
    • United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories
    • Venezuela
    • Vietnam
    • Taiwan

    The reason is because more than 50,000 of their citizens emigrated to the United States in the preceding five years.

    The citizens of eligible countries can apply for the Diversity Visa Lottery here.

    What do you think about this? Is the reason for exempted countries valid? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

    Well, the exemption seems like a way to ensure fair treatment. Also, those countries mentioned have a high population and emigration rate, so they move to the US anyways.

      You’re right about that. I also think it’s fair.
