Team Reciprocity's Thomas 'Tommey' Trewren and Bradley 'Wuskin' Marshall have been granted P1 athletic visas to compete in North American Call of Duty tournaments.
Many international professional players, including Tommey and Wuskin, have previously had to travel on tourist visas and risk being rejected at the border when traveling for competitions.
The three remaining members of Team Reciprocity, Zach 'Zed' Denyer, Sean 'Seany' O'Connor and Denholm 'Denz' Taylor, have yet to confirm whether they have been approved for a P1 visa at this stage.
However, once all five members have been approved, the British and Australian mixed team will not need to worry about being turned away at the border.
This is a real problem as Canadian player Jevon 'Goonjar' Gooljar-Lim was turned away during the Black Ops III season, which led to Team Kaliber being relegated from the CWL Pro League.
P1 athletic visa has been approved until 2021. That’s the first step out of the way before the move to Las Vegas, now to wait for everyone else’s to be accepted and we are good to go.

Visa approval also means the team is one step closer to moving to Las Vegas for the competitive season which will be a better base for traveling to events.
The squad will move to their new home prior to the first tournament of the year, CWL Las Vegas, which takes place from December 7 to 9 with a $200,00 prize pool.
