Kathmandu, September 23
Here is good news for the travellers: Nepal has resumed issuing on-arrival visas after a gap of months owing to the measures introduced to control the Covid-19 pandemic.
The government says citizens of the countries approved on-arrival visas travelling to Nepal can obtain the visas on arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport and other entry points if the applicant has completed all doses of Covid-19 vaccination at least 14 days before the arrival.
The travellers are also required to show evidence that they have tested negative for coronavirus in a test conducted at most 72 hours before the arrival and they have already booked a hotel in Nepal.
Meanwhile, if anyone wants to obtain visas from Nepali embassies abroad, they also have to complete the vaccination before that.
Those who are yet to complete the vaccination can also enter the country, but they have to apply for visas via travel agents before their arrival. Upon arrival, they will have to quarantine themselves for 10 days before coming out on travel.
