Latest Updates Regarding the Visa Resumption in Nepal

No quarantine, visa on arrival! 

Almost two years of the COVID19 pandemic, there is good news for travelers around the globe as the cabinet meeting held on the 23rd of September 2021 along with the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Civil Aviation Nepal has decided to remove the seven days mandatory quarantine and they also resume the visa on arrival for the fully vaccinated tourists. 

Nepal was badly hit in the first, second, and almost third phases of the COVID19 pandemic but gradually the cases are decreasing amidst the vaccination campaigns that are running rapidly around the nation. The decision from the cabinet seems perfect at the beginning of the autumn season. Nepal has been eagerly waiting to welcome foreigners for the last two years and the time has come now finally to explore and renunciate yourself in the beauty of nature, mountains, and rich culture and festivals of Nepal. 

The decision from the cabinet has made traveling to Nepal convenient for all the foreigners around the globe. If you are fully vaccinated and have a negative COVID19 test, then you can come to Nepal and get an arrival visa. After removing the seven days mandatory quarantine for foreigners, it will be easier to get the Nepal visa for travel and tourism-related works. They can directly resume their activity after arriving in Nepal. 

New Travel Protocol for Nepal entry for vaccinated tourists:

  • Proof of completion of 14 days vaccination certificate/barcode against COVID19. 
  • Get a negative PCR test issued within 72 hours before the departure of Nepal. 
  • Invitation letter/Permission for mountaineering and trekking activities. 
  • Proof of the hotel booking in Nepal for the entire Nepal stay. 
  • Get CCMC form (international traveler online arrival form)

New Travel Protocol for Nepal entry for non-vaccinated tourists: 

  • Antigen test will be conducted at the airport immigration entry point. If they get a positive antigen test, foreign nationals must stay in hotel quarantine for days at their own expense. Only after testing negative can they resume their travel-related activity. 
  • While testing COVID19 or living in isolation and other expenses including insurance shall be borne by the tourists themselves. 
  • All the foreign nationals traveling to Nepal should be tested for COVID19 immediately if they showed any signs and symptoms and must stay in self-isolation if the test report comes positive. 

At last, we hope the new protocol for Nepal travel will absolutely inspire travel lovers and people who were desperately waiting to come to Nepal. Nepal is open and people here are eagerly waiting for foreigners to welcome them once again in this beautiful country of the Himalayas.
