US visa-free policy for Saint Lucians a hoax, embassy says

2016-10-18 15_49_38-Greenshot

The United States Embassy for the Eastern Caribbean has been forced to refute reports which claimed that Saint Lucia was granted a visa waiver for entry into the United States (US).

The US Embassy had to tweet the clarification after a satirical article surfaced from several websites and went viral.

The story falsely claimed the US Department of State updated the number of qualified Visa Waiver Program (VWP) designated countries and Saint Lucia, among other Caribbean countries were included.

The US Embassy included in it’s tweet, a link HERE to allow persons to see the complete list of countries whose citizens are currently eligible to travel to the US under the VWP.

This false article has gone viral.

  1. Any Lucian to believe that bs must have not heard over a tiny tiny issue called IMPACTS which is still yet to be resolved

  2. Obviously a ...party supporter posted on that fake news page and shared all over social media to raise the issue.

    The UWP never said that there would be visa free travel, the statement was "that you won't need a visa to travel to the U.S.A.". In context (which escapes a lo of people) the conversation was about improving economic conditions on the island so that our people will stop leaving to seek better lives elsewhere. If you believe contrary to that our education system has failed you and perhaps you need a visa to go the the U.S.A.

  3. Do St. Lucians have any idea who is playing around with the countries reputation concerning visas and US? This has being going on for sometime now. I hope an investigation is launched as this is a criminal offence.
