Global Esports Valorant players in visa limbo ahead of VCT Pacific
Global Esports founder Rushindra Sinha updated fans about his team’s visa status and revealed that the Indian players on the roster were in limbo ahead of the start of the VCT Pacific League.
Global Esports may have trouble fielding its full roster for the first part of the VCT Pacific League as the organization’s founder revealed on Twitter that the Indian players on the roster were in visa limbo.
Sinha said that all of the non-Indian players on the GE roster are in Seoul with their visas and are ready to compete in the VCT league. But, Ganesh ‘SkRossi’ Gangadhar and Abhirup ‘Lightningfast’ Choudhury, the team’s two India representatives, were waiting on getting their passports back so they can fly to South Korea to compete.
Sinha said there is no timetable for the process, so the players could have their passports back by next week, or next month.
“There’s nothing left for us to do, everything has already been submitted a while ago, now we just wait for our passports to come back soon,” Sinha said.
SkRossi confirmed the news via Twitter, saying that he will miss the first game of the season for Global Esports.

Global Esports might have to play VCT Pacific down two players
Global Esports are set to face off on the first day of VCT Pacific competition on March 25 against T1. While the roster will be without two of its players, the team will be able to field a competitive squad.
Global Esports have a seven-man roster with players from North America, South Korea, Oceania and India on it. Even if the team is without SkRossi and Lightningfast for an extended period, they should still be able to fight for a top spot in the league.
SkRossi and Sinha updated the community on March 23 that their passpots have been acquired and that they are set to fly to South Korea on Monday. SkRossi and Lightningfast will still miss the first match, but will be able to join the team for the rest of the split.
The India-based esports organization was last seen at VCT LOCK//IN where it lost to Team Vitality in the first round of the tournament.
