With the games just three weeks away, hundreds of thousands of tickets for the Sochi Olympics are still unsold.

There are a number of factors that could be discouraging foreign visitors for the games.

Those include concerns about security, the expensive travel costs and the difficulty in obtaining visas.

Potential visitors could also be turned off by the controversy over Russia's law banning "gay" propaganda.

According to the Associated Press, about 300,000 tickets are still available.
