Kathmandu, January 9
The Department of Customs is tightening rules about what goods can be brought to Nepal from other countries without any taxes.
Chuda Raj Sapkota, head of the Customs Office at the Tribhuvan International Airport, says people should look at the customs guidelines before bringing any items to Nepal via the country’s sole international airport.
He shares that the items which are brought without following custom guidelines will be seized.
The government has also imposed customs tax on various items being brought from abroad.
The Dpartment has recently published a new list of items that will be taxed and those which will be exempted (see the infograph above).
The Department has been seizing items which do not meet their regulation.
“Everyone wants to bring various things from abroad. If the people bring items which do not violate our guidelines, they will have no problem,” says Sapkota.
