The 72nd Miss Universe pageant, Miss Universe 2023, is almost around the corner. On November 18, this prominent worldwide beauty contest will take place in El Salvador’s José Adolfo Pineda Arena. However, it appears that viewers will not be able to see Qi Jia, the Chinese representative, competing in the beauty pageant. A story of suffering and resilience has surfaced among the sparkle and glamour of the Miss Universe 2023 contest. Due to visa processing difficulties, China’s delegate, Qi Jia, wasn’t able to take part in this year’s event. While Qi Jia made it to El Salvador, where the pageant is being held, she missed more than a week of pre-event events due to the visa delay. The Miss Universe China official page released the update on Instagram. The Miss Universe competition regions will take place from November 15 to November 18. The organising committee as well as the champion, Ms. Jia Qi, initiated visa procedures as soon as her coronation was made public and actively got ready for the world finals, but due to the tardiness of issuance, she travelled to El Salvador shortly as the visa was issued and he lost over a week’s worth of activities, making him unable to participate in this year’s international event.”
Despite the tragic turn of events, the Chinese delegation confirmed that Qi Jia, a former athlete, will be able to compete in the 73rd Miss Universe competition next year. The delegation emphasised that Qi Jia will continue with her complete training in order to demonstrate her abilities. For the first time in history, El Salvador will be hosting the beauty pageant.

Karla Inelisse Guilf Acevedo of Puerto Rico was among them, and she and her fellow finalists enthralled the crowd with their performances.
