Brits planning to take flights to India for the forthcoming Cricket World Cup are being offered travel advice

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the England and Wales Cricket Board have joined forces to help ensure that travellers heading to India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka for the sporting event are well-informed.

Starting on February 19th, the tournament is set to prove popular with many cricket fans but the FCO is advising travellers to make sure they are up-to-date with vaccinations and have taken the correct malaria tablets before jetting off.

In addition, the office is also reminding people to make sure they carry photo identification at all times and have the right multi-visas in place if they plan to travel around to watch matches.

Consular affairs minister Jeremy Browne said: “Following an exciting winter of cricket in Australia, we want British supporters to enjoy a trouble-free time at the Cricket World Cup in south Asia.”

Meanwhile, the PTI recently reported that India has seen a surge in visitors ahead of the World Cup as fans start to arrive for the opening ceremony.
