Minister of Sports Kirsty Coventry says they are now positive the country will host Algeria in the Afcon qualifiers on home soil.
All stadiums in the country were banned from hosting international games due to their poor state.
Renovations are now being carried at Barbourfields and National Sports Stadium ahead of next inspection scheduled for any time before the home leg.
According Star FM journalist Steve Vickers, Coventry said the current developments put the country in a better position to pass the inspection.
