Venezuelans can participate in US Visa lottery
Deadline for enrollment is November 5, 2011
Emigration to the United States can be a matter of luck thanks to the US Visa Program 2013 or Diversity Visa Lottery offered by the US Department of State, which gives winners the right to make an appointment to get US documentation.
According to Berenice Mariscal, an expert in the US State Department visa, the yearly program "is aimed at increasing diversity." According to this premise, only the citizens from countries whose emigration figures to the United States are below 50,000 people in the past five years are entitled to participate in the process. Therefore, Venezuelans can register.
Application began on October 2 and will end on November 5.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
