Madrid Spain.- The United States Government called on Cubans who want to enroll in the 2024 Diversity Visa Program to be alert to possible scams.
“Be careful with fraud,” said the United States Embassy in Cuba this Tuesday in a Tweet, where he also highlighted that the presentation of the registration is free.
In previous years, dozens of false pages have appeared offering to fill out applications with the promise that they will win one of the permanent visas in exchange for an amount of money. For this reason, the consular headquarters recalled that the only way to register is through the website http://dvprogram.state.gov.
(1/2) The deadline to enroll in the 2024 Diversity Visa Program is open until 11/8. The only way to sign up is through the website https://t.co/Kpxd7PSATm. There is no fee to submit your registration to the program, beware of scams.
