APIA, Samoa (September 10, 1998 - PACNEWS/Amy)---Samoan citizens now are eligible to participate in the annual immigration visa lottery to obtain permanent U.S. residency.

Bill Warren, U.S. Chargé d'Affaires in Apia, said requests for the Year 2000 Diversity Immigrant Visa Program (DV 2000) are expected to be very high, with several million people applying.

This year, the U.S. is offering 50,000 permanent resident visas.

The DV 2000 visa project targets citizens from countries that have low rates of immigration to the United States.
