Venue change for WT20 makes it difficult for Pakistani fans to get visa
Kolkata: The Pakistani fans will have to face lot of difficulty in getting visa for WT20 match to be played against India due to last minute change in venue from Dharamsala to Kolkata.
Around 200 Pakistani fans were expected to arrive at Dharamsala but hardly 7 to 8 will be able to make it to Kolkata. The procedure of obtaining Indian visa is quite cumbersome for Pakistani passport holders as photocopy of tickets is required and there are only 8 days left for the match to begin therefore it won’t be easy getting a visa.
On the other end sources from the Indian government say that they are willing to give multi-city visas to Pakistani fans but they have to possess match tickets for confirmation. It may be noted that ‘Green Shirts’ participation is subject to the government’s approval.
