William "Leffen" Hjelte's long-sought US visa has finally been fully processed, according to a tweet from Team SoloMid owner Andy Dinh.

The Swedish player previously said he was "probably not going" to The Big House 6, in Dearborn, Michigan after a saga of visa issues prevented him from attending a number of major tournaments ranging from Genesis 3 to EVO 2016.

With the visa finally approved, though, it is still unclear whether Leffen will be attending The Big House. The player called the situation "still uncertain" in a tweet shortly after the news broke, also thanking the community for support through the process.

Leffen has not competed in the US in over year, not since HTC Throwdown last September where he took first place over Juan "Hungrybox" Debiedma. However, the Fox main has still encountered his American competition at Canadian events, including Get On My Level 2016 where he defeated Joseph "Mang0" Marquez, Adam "Armada" Lindgren and Jason "Mew2King" Zimmerman on his path to first place.

The Big House 6, runs Oct. 7-9.
