  • August 13, 2019

The US Embassy in Nepal has rejected national cricketer Sandip Lamichhane’s visa application to the United States. In a tweet, he said he was ‘surprised’ for being denied the visa, and called upon Hello Sarkar and Ministry of Foreign Affairs attention to the matter.


Sandeep Lamichhane, a national sensation with an emerging international career, has played in various international tournaments – he represents Delhi Capitals in Indian Premier League, Melbourne Stars in Australia’s Big Bash League. He is due to play for Barbados Tridents team in the upcoming season of Caribbean Premier League.

He had applied for the visa because there is a chance ‘the second round of CPL could be held in Florida, US’. In another tweet, he said ‘he had proper documentation’.
