Athletes and officials from various participating countries, including , , and , have arrived ahead of the games scheduled for March 8–23, 2024. Despite the early arrivals, the games village is yet to officially open, leaving teams responsible for arranging their own accommodations.

A member of the LOC revealed to GNA Sports that technical members from participating countries have conducted inspections of the facilities, including accommodations, and have expressed satisfaction with the standards. However, concerns linger regarding the need for clarity on accommodation arrangements.
