With everything going on since President Donald Trump took power, there was always going to be many wild stories put out there. The latest one circulating around this week is that Batswana will no longer need a visa to visit the US.
Please see below the message published on the US embassy website to address those rumours:
The U.S. Embassy has seen reports that Batswana citizens will no longer require visas for temporary travel to the United States. These reports are untrue. Batswana citizens are welcome to travel to the United States but do require a visa.
If you would like to live permanently in the U.S. you, you must obtain an Immigrant Visa (IV), a fiancé (e) visa (K visa), or Diversity Visa (DV) to seek entry into the U.S. as a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). All such applications for residents of Botswana are processed at the U.S. Consulate General in Johannesburg, South Africa.
