Minister without portfolio in the Economic Growth and Job Creation Ministry, Daryl Vaz, has confirmed that his United States visa has been revoked.
In a statement this morning, Mr. Vaz says he received correspondence from the US embassy in Kingston, which stated that subsequent to his visa issuance, information came to light that he may be ineligible for a visa.
Mr. Vaz states that he advised the Prime Minister of the issue and has initiated through the formal procedures and protocols, the process of seeking clarification to determine his eligibility to be issued a US visa.
He says as a public figure he is obligated to keep the public updated on the outcome of the process/appeal of the revocation which has been formally lodged.
In 2008, Mr. Vaz renounced his US citizenship following the issuance of a ruling in the dual citizenship case which was brought against him.
Mr. Vaz says he is committed to pursuing the matter concerning the revocation of his US visa with the aim of a positive result.
