The National Sports Council has warned that all registered national associations with the council must get a traveling clearance before they undertake any visa application to attend international sports programmes or events.

Mamudou Max Jallow, executive secretary, in a press release, said all registered National Sports Associations with the National Sports Council “are hereby reminded that travelling clearance must be sought from the National Sports Council officer”.

This, he added, must be done before submitting visa applications to the embassies.

He called for maximum cooperation in this venture.
