Zambians still need Visas to enter US-US Embassy

General News Zambians still need Visas to enter US-US Embassy

The U.S. Embassy in Zambia says reports that Zambians will no longer require Visas to enter the US are incorrect.

In a brief statement, the Embassy says it is aware of false news reports stating that Zambian nationals can now travel to the United States without a visa.

It added that at this time, Zambia is not part of the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which administers the VWP in consultation with the U.S. Department of State, has not announced any new VWP entrants,” it said.

The Visa Waiver Program administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in consultation with the State Department, permits citizens of 38 countries to travel to the United States for business or tourism for stays of up to 90 days without a visa.

In return, those 38 countries must permit U.S. citizens and nationals to travel to their countries for a similar length of time without a visa for business or tourism purposes.

Travelers in the following categories are no longer eligible to travel or be admitted to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program.

  1. Zambia needs to be given special status because we have the only President in the world chosen by God we also have a national prayer day. To Trump and the American government please consider Zambia for free visa waiver we shall reciprocate by giving Trump an honorary citizenship.

  2. I new it was not true. I was going to be surprised if it would have turned true. Zambia is one country with poor passport system. Zambia has also very poor boarder control where foreigners from neighboring countries such as Congo DR and Somalia can easily enter.

    As much as I’m a Zambian I would not support this.

    Moreover, why do Zambians behave like Nigerians in wanting to go to America? America is not economical Heaven in case there those who thought like so. Why do you admire America so much instead of developing your own Country? That’s why you allow people like Trump to call your country as a Sheethole. Be wise in choosing your leaders so you can develop like America. Zambia has everything except good leadership. You can’t develop a country with Pathetic Failure (PF) in office…
