Recently news about the start of Canada visa lottery 2017/2018, similar to the USA visa lottery, captivated the whole Internet. Mr Lajos Arendas, the Canadian Deputy High Commissioner in Lagos, on Wednesday said that the news is nothing more but a widespread rumour.
"This is false information. In fact, the U.S. used to have, and perhaps still do, but Canada does not have a visa lottery programme.
As far as I know, it has never existed in Canada. At least, certainly not in my 24-year career. It looks like some people are spreading rumours, and these could be linked to a possible scam.
The one thing you could tell the public is that you contacted me and I firmly stated that there is no such thing as a Canadian Visa Lottery,’’ he said.
Articles, published online ensured that citizens from 16 countries, including Nigeria, would be able to apply as of March 1, 2017. Beware, because it is UNTRUE! The Canadian government has not made any public notification about starting such a lottery, so this news appeared phony. Even a false list of the countries, citizens of which could apply to win the visa lottery, including Nigeria, was created. The visa application requirements, the list of the countries, the dates and the instructions, everything was made up. Probably all this was created as an another scam, so be careful and do not order any services of any company, group of individuals or any person, that promise to assist you with the application to the fake visa lottery.
