The Zambian Embassy in Washington D.C has refuted online media reports suggesting that United States President, Donald Trump has signed an executive order to allow all Zambian nationals travel to the United States without visas.
Zambia’s Charge´ D’affaires to the USA Joseph Chilaizya says the Department of State in Washington DC has not communicated such information the Zambian Embassy.
Mr. Chilaizya stated that Zambians around the world seeking to come to the USA should contact the American Embassy in their respective countries for visa applications.
He says following the online reports, Zambians around the world have been contacting the Embassy in Washington D.C. to clarify this misleading report.
Mr. Chilaizya has since advised Zambians to be cautious with these online reports, as many are fake news.
This is according to a statement issued by First Secretary (Press and Public Relations) Embassy of the Republic of Zambia Cosmas Chileshe.
