Cutting one's nails and hair after one's qurbaani animal is slaughtered in another country

Q: A person refrains from cutting his nails/hair due to performing qurbani.

He follows Saudi for Eid (20th of July) whilst his wakeel doing the qurbani for him does so on Eid day in India (21st of July).

Does he therefore need to spend his Eid with long nails etc until the wakeel has slaughtered his animal the next day? If so, he also has no way of finding out what time of the day on the 21st the animal will be slaughtered, so how does he know what time of the day to cut the nails/hair?

A: The hadeeth says that he should trim his nails and moustache after the slaughtering.

I don't think this is a problem any longer. Communication is so rapid that in a moment you can find out these details.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
