Petitioning United States Department of State, US Embassy New Delhi

Johnston, Rhode Island
On February 24th, 2017, the Tibet Women’s Soccer Team were denied visas to travel to Texas for the Dallas Cup soccer tournament.

Their visa applications, including non-refundable fees and travel expenses of approximately $5,000 (half of the teams yearly budget), were denied by the US Embassy in New Delhi, India.

According to the team, they were told that they “had no good reason” to travel to the United States.

The Dallas Cup begins April 9th, 2017. The United States Department of State has the ability to overturn this decision.
