Multiple entry visas for spectators likely

“The COC discussed the possibility of visa variations for supporters entering India to watch ICC cricket World Cup 2011,” COC chairman Sharad Pawar told reporters here on Friday.

“At present only single entry visas are permitted for tourists to India but all supporters, except those from Pakistan, holding valid match tickets, are expected to be allowed multiple entry visas,” he added. Pawar expressed satisfaction at the preparation of the 2011 World Cup, which will be co-hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

“I am sure that the thousands of spectators from Sri Lanka and around the world will be extremely impressed by the new venue not just in Sri Lanka but also in India and Bangladesh. The reports we have received of the progress are extremely positive,” Pawar said.

ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat said the World Cup 2011 is expected to cost over 100 million dollars.
