The National Immigration Agency (NIA) has denied a claim that it has been slow to complete security checks ahead of the Universiade Games.
The 2017 Universiade, or world college games, will kick off in Taipei on August 19.
In a radio interview Friday, Taipei City Councilor Wang Shih-chien reportedly said that the NIA had yet to review information provided by 1,845 foreign athletes. That’s18% of the total expected to arrive for the games. Wang said that because of this, these athletes are still unable to get visas. [FULL STORY]
