The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the UK on 12 November to begin his three-day visit, during which he is expected to address the British Parliament alongside David Cameron and have lunch with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Modi will also be addressing 60,000 people at Wembley Stadium on 13 November, as thousands of British-Indians have come together to welcome India's prime minister with a cultural show.

However, the welcome reception has been plagued by ticketing issues a few days ahead of the event. Many have posted on social media raising the alarm over the fact that, despite having received their confirmation email for the event, they are yet to receive their tickets from Wembley Stadium. Messages were being posted as recently as Wednesday (11 November).

Wembley Stadium said that those who are yet to receive their tickets should email their seat booking code and seat numbers to them. However, it remained unclear whether the issue would be resolved prior to the event. A spokesperson for Wembley Stadium urged those who haven't received their tickets to get in touch with them as soon as possible as "time is running out" for them to reprint tickets.

Some complained that they had been unable to get a response from the UK Welcomes Modi team about the ticket delays. Aman Choudhary posted on Facebook: "I'm still waiting for my tickets, which were registered over three weeks ago. I've contacted UKWelcomesModi.org on Facebook, Twitter and through email but no one has replied so far."

UK Welcomes Modi posted on their Twitter page on 12 November echoing Wembley Stadium's request to get in touch with the Stadium if people are yet to receive their tickets. IBTimes UK is awaiting a response from the group about what people should do in the case of not receiving their tickets before the big day.

Meanwhile, Transport for London (TfL) has warned attendees that road closures are in place on the A406 North Circular, which is likely to cause "severe delays" on the roads around Wembley Stadium. The public are urged to use public transport to ensure arriving before the doors close at 3pm.

The event is expected to be the biggest welcome reception that any Indian Prime Minister has experienced outside of India, with a stellar line-up of performers including:

• Arunima Dance Academy
