Nepal eases travel restrictions

30 Mar 2021 by Business Traveller India

The government of Nepal (Council of Ministers) has announced new travel guidelines for all the tourists visiting the country.

According to the guidelines, it is mandatory for the visitors to submit a negative PCR test report of the swab taken before 72 hours of boarding or they can also show a report of complete vaccination against Covid-19.

All incoming travellers; those with vaccination against Covid-19 or with a negative PCR report, are required to do a PCR test upon arrival in Nepal in coordination with the concerned agency or association (at their own cost). They also need to stay in a hotel until the report comes out.

They can continue with their travel plans if the report is negative. In case of a  positive report, the tourist must continue to stay in hotel quarantine at their own cost until the report reads negative.

Tourists can travel between India and Nepal under the travel bubble agreement.

As per the circular from the ministry of culture, tourism and civil aviation, “Tourists visiting Nepal through air route (airlines) can access on arrival visa from the immigration desk at Tribhuvan International Airport, in case Nepal’s visa is not available or difficult to avail in the tourist home country.

“All tourists visiting Nepal through land route can enter Nepal only after acquiring visa from their home country. ”
