In order to assist Caribbean Nationals in South Florida wishing to apply, the Belize Association of Florida and the Caribbean Bar Association are sponsoring an information session on Sunday, November 19 at 2:00 pm.

The lottery offers people from certain countries a chance to be selected for Lawful Permanent Residence in the United States, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.

Nationals of the following countries may apply: Antigua & Barbuda; Barbados; Belize; Cuba; Dominica; Grenada; Guyana; St. Kitts & Nevis; St. Lucia; St. Vincent & the Grenadines; Suriname; & Trinidad & Tobago.
