    Now what happens when a person do not have a computer, should that person be denied the right of applying for a visa?

        What a foolish comment, some of you need to shut your mouth if you do not understand what is going on. What money do you believe the United States are making from that. The immigration and naturalization services of America does not want the penny, and one cent you people have.

        More than thirty years ago when I applied for a visa to travel to the US., I lived in Antigua, after the interview, the counselor took my Passport to Barbados, and promised he would recommend a visa was issued to me, it did not cost me one Dominica red cent when it was issued.

        I do not know if they are charging anything now, but if they do it serves you people right. As for the one concern with Antigua. Three times in my years of living the United States opened Embassies in Antigua, each time they had to close them. I know why; however I am not talking, but we know how corrupt a place is Antigua!
