EXPLAINED: Everything you need to know about applying for 2021 US Diversity Visa [VIDEO]

Published

on

Once again, up to 55,000 foreign nationals and their families from around the world will have a chance to legally immigrate to the United States and achieve the American Dream with a Green Card in hand in 2021, thanks to one of the Diversity Visa lottery Program. Although President Donald Trump is against it, that will not happen unless the law is changed…and the US is a land strictly governed by the rule of law.

The U.S. State Department, which administers the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, better known as the visa lottery, announced Thursday that it will go ahead with the lottery for 55,000 diversity visas available for Fiscal Year 2021.

In case you missed it The US government announced Thursday that the registration period for DV-2021 will begin on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019 at 12pm EDT and end on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 at 12pm EST.

The winners will be drawn from random selection and there is no cost to register.

There is a limited period of time during which you can register for the Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) Program during each fiscal year. Each year, the Department of State publishes detailed instructions for entering the DV Program. These instructions include the dates of the registration period during which you will be able to enter.

All entries must be submitted electronically on the Electronic Diversity Visa (E-DV) website at www.dvlottery.state.gov during the specified registration period. No late entries or paper entries are accepted. The law allows only one entry by or for each person during each registration period. The Department of State uses sophisticated technology to detect multiple entries. If you submit more than one entry you will be disqualified.

Some changes have been made since the last such Lottery Program. Here is all you need to know:

Detailed guidance for completing the online entry form is included in the DV Instructions.

Please view our video for an introduction to the Diversity Visa program, and step-by-step guidance to help you submit an entry. (Note: minor changes have been made to the DV-2020 entry form, but the instructions provided in the video are still valid.)

After you submit a complete entry, you will see a confirmation screen containing your name and a unique confirmation number. Print this confirmation screen for your records. It is extremely important that you retain your confirmation number. It is the only way you can check the status of your entry, and you will need it to obtain further instructions or schedule an interview for a visa if you are selected.

There is no cost to register for the DV Program. You are strongly encouraged to complete the entry form yourself, without a “Visa Consultant,” “Visa Agent,” or other facilitator who offers to help. If somebody else helps you, you should be present when your entry is prepared so that you can provide the correct answers to the questions and retain the confirmation page and your unique confirmation number.

VIDEO-Diaspora meet to address Big Four Agenda

Published

on

Opposition leader Raila Odinga, who is also the African Union High Representative for Infrastructure Development, will be among prominent leaders who will address the Diaspora convention which is taking place in Nairobi between December 17, 2019 and December 19, 2019 at the Ole Sereni Hotel.

Speaking to the Nation in Nairobi, the President of Kenya Diaspora Alliance (KDA) Shem Ochuodho said among the keynote speakers will be Mr Siddharth Chatterjee UN Resident Coordinator, Danish Ambassador to Kenya Mette Knudsen and Mr Jerome Otieno, Group MD Life, UAP Old Mutual, East Africa.

Prior to the 2017 General Elections, Mr Odinga championed diaspora issues, especially voting rights for Kenyans living abroad.

Dr Ochuodho said the theme for this year’s convention is “Diaspora: The Big Four Agenda”.

On the recently launched Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report, Dr Ochuodho said despite its many flaws, it at least promises to address contentious issues contained in the dual citizenship clause in the Constitution.

“One is that they are talking of doing away with restrictions on dual citizens holding public offices, or to be State officers. Secondly, it is also talking about finding ways in which diaspora can be infused and incentivised to invest at home,” he said.

I just turned 40…I came to the US when I was 20; What Have I Learned?

Published

on

BY JANE MUKAMI

It has been 20 years since I arrived in the U.S. from Kenyan – where did time go? I was 20 years old when I got to Atlanta with no idea how life would unfold. Now at 40 years old, What have I learned?

  1. The land of milk and honey does provide opportunities for success but nothing is handed to you…you gotta milk the cow AKA work hard for the milk and honey. My 1st job was a cashier at Wendy’s making $5.50 [500/=] an hour, but that was just the beginning #StartWhereYouAre #StartWithWhatYouHave.
  2. Success is relative and should be defined by you and not by society. My definition of success is being happy doing what I love while experiencing freedom – debt freedom, financial freedom and location freedom – ability to serve my clients/work from anywhere in the world #DefineYourSuccess.
  3. Success requires continued learning/education, breaking away from doing the same ol’ things, with the ol’ same people. Growth comes from finding new circles, friends, hiring coaches/mentors, people who inspire + push you to become who you were created to be. It’s ok to be a small fish in a big pond. It gives you room to grow into a whale #LevelUp.
  4. Life’s too short to sweat the small stuff – have fun, laugh, enjoy your journey, protect your space by decreasing negativity, drama, toxic friendships or relationships that do not serve you. Do not worry about what others think or say about you. Focus on you, be intentional about what you want and make it happen – mute all else #GoGet #NoExcuses #StayHungry #StayHumble

Atlanta has been good to me…do I qualify for the title #GeorgiaPeach Even though I don’t like sweet tea, fried chicken, pork rinds, biscuits and gravy, grits, waffles and fried chicken…I’m I the only one still very confused by the words chicken fried steak…?? 🤣🤣

Funny enough, I feel as though the past 20 years were simply a rehearsal, a warm up, a preparation of sorts – my life is just now beginning #selfactualized I’m excited….its #GoTime.  Cheers to 20 more 🥂🥂🇱🇷
