Urgent: Na`Vi summon Ukrainian consul an
UPDATE #5: According to HLTV.org, the team has finally arrived to the tournament and their first matches will soon commence!
UPDATE #4: Ok, Ukrainian consul appeared and Na`Vi was granted visas after 6 hours held in "airport prison", according to Yegor "Markeloff" Markelov. The team now is on their way to the tournament venue.
UPDATE #3: A misfortune of Na`Vi continues as the team has finally arrived to Bosnia after two days of travelling. Despite a permission to take a flight to Bosnia and Herzegovina, this time Natus Vincere was stopped in Sarajevo itself by local customs. The team once again was denied an entry to the country because they lacked visas and customs officers tried to deport them back to Kiev. As no vacant seats were able for the flight, the team still remains in the airport and called for Ukrainian consul to solve the matter. At the same time Adepto BH Open organizers are already on their way to assist Na`Vi in their attendance of already going tournament... Stay with us for additional information in the following hours.
UPDATE #2: Na`Vi adventures continue as the team was denied an entry to Bosnia once again, this time in Vienna... According to Arseniy "ceh9" Trynozhenko, the team missed their flight to Sarajevo but was able to convince customs officers to get a pass by. Now Natus Vincere will have to wait yet another flight to Sarajevo which is scheduled to Friday, June 24th, 13:00 CET.
Na`Vi's first game in the groupstage round starts at 16:30 CET.
UPDATE #1: Few hours later we got to know that Na`Vi still have chances to attend the event! As we previously reported, the players have Schengen visas which allow them to stay in Bosnia and Herzegovina up to 10 days. This means that Natus Vincere has booked another flight to Vienna for 8:00 am tomorrow where they will have to wait for their night flight to Sarajevo. Our team will arrive to B&H on Friday morning and will immediately join the groupstage slaughter. Unforunately due to carrier's mistake our guys lost ton of nerves but luckily they will still attend Adepto BH!
Just few minutes ago some websites have posted information about Natus Vincere having problems with their flight to Sarajevo. Unfortunately we'd like to confirm this rumor: our team was denied a flight to Vienna (where they would change the flight to Sarajev) because they didn't have bosnian visa. Yegor "Markeloff" Markelov gave a short commentary to coverage.su:
«We always handle all visa issues via travel agency. We have valid Schengen but still it wasn't enough to take a flight to Vienna. ZeroGravity will try to receive invitations to make us visas but chances are very slim. Travel agency just wasn't aware that entry to Bosnia and Herzegovina require visa. It seems that we will miss the tournament»
At the moment Alexander "ZeroGravity" Kokhanovskyy is doing his best to solve the situation but with approximately 36 hours left for the tournament to start, the chances for Na`Vi to attend Adepto BH Open are very small...
