Covid-19 Protocols Updated

Almost three years after the COVID19 pandemic, a decision has been made recently regarding visas for Tourists, Nepalese, Nonresidential Nepalese, and other personnel on 12th January 2022 in coordination with the Ministry of Home Affairs. Tourists from all countries except certain countries are regulated as in previous times.
After the recent rise in Covid cases around the world, there has been a certain change in protocols for tourists arriving in Nepal via different nations. Globally, the new variant of Omicron has been spreading in different parts of the world, to avoid the spreading of the virus and to continue living in normalcy there are certain changes in protocols for Visa. 
The decision has been made in order to make the travel of tourists as convenient and hassle-free as possible. If you are fully vaccinated and have a negative RT-PCR report before 72 hours, you will be able to arrive in Nepal successfully however, if your transit is in some of the countries explicitly mentioned by the Department of Immigration (mentioned below) you won’t be entered to Nepal.
