Anybody know the reason for this? BY ?
Because the real name of the lottery is the "Diversity Immigrant Visa Program" - obviously, they've got enough Anglo-Saxon / Welsh Celts in the US and are looking for more ethnically diverse background.
Incidentally its not English and Welsh who are singled out but citizens of Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Peru, Poland, Russia, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam.
Taken from the application form that can be found here.
So its OK for Anglo Saxon/Celtic Frogs and Paddies but not us.
