The Khumbu Pasang Lhamu rural municipality of the Solukhumbu district says it requires either a Covid-19 vaccination certificate or a PCR report that proves the traveller tested negative for the coronavirus for anyone coming to the Lukla Airport on a flight.

The rural municipality’s Chief Administrative Officer Sujan Kumar Budhathoki has recently issued a circular to all airline companies flying to Lukla, informing them of the rule.

Budhathoki says the vaccine certificate shall verify the traveller has received all vaccine doses required.

Meanwhile, 98 per cent of the citizens in the rural municipality have already received full vaccination, informs Budhathoki.

Thousands of tourists, foreigners, in particular, travel to this place in the autumn for trekking as Everest lies in this region.
