World T20: ‘Common domestic space’ to be created for ‘hassle-free travel’ – Nandlall


Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, SC,  has indicated that the legal framework for efficient travel in the region during the Men’s World T20 is being crafted.

Speaking on his programme, ‘Issues in the News,’ Tuesday evening, Nandlall explained that a similar framework would be created when Guyana hosted the 2007 50-Over World Cup, but on this occasion, they would have to partner with Homeland Security and US Immigration.

The United States of America is a co-host with West Indies for the  World T20 from June 1-29 with matches in New York, Dallas, Lauderhill, Guyana, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados.

Guyana will host group matches from June 2 – 8 and semi-final one on June 26 at the National Stadium, Providence.

“Work has begun in the Caribbean region to create a common domestic space while the competition is going on,” the Attorney General stated.

“This will require legislation to allow for VISA and other hassle-free travel across the region, and other special facilities will have to be incorporated in a suite of legislation that each member state will be required to enact for the T20 World”, Nandlall explained.

Earlier this month, organisers of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 recently held high-level meetings with various stakeholders as the preparations for the global sporting event intensified.

The summit’s main objective was to bring the main security, safety, medical, and health stakeholders together, focusing on sharing information, insight, experiences, best practices, and resources.
