They were in Mauritius to participate in four-nation tournament also involving Kenya and Djibouti.

The management of Pakistan football team had applied for Indian visa through the embassy in Mauritius and were expecting the process to be completed by Saturday.

However, administrative delays resulted in delay in issuance of visas to Pakistan football team.

The Pakistan Football Federation has confirmed that visas were issued on Monday evening and the team is now looking forward to travel to India as soon as possible.

A source in PFF confirmed that the operation department is working to find best possible options to make travel arrangements.

The source confirmed that option to reschedule the much-anticipated Pakistan vs India game in SAFF Cup can be used only if Pakistan team fails to reach Bangalore by Tuesday night.

This will be 2nd visit by a Pakistani team to India in less than six months. In February 2023, Pakistan squash team travelled to Chennai to participate in Asian junior championship
