On Thursday, the Nepal government held a meeting with the cabinet of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation in presence of the Nepal Tourism Board to amend foreign tourists’ entry protocols. The meeting ended with amending some protocols to make traveling to Nepal convenient for travelers. According to the new criteria, the Nepal government has wiped out the quarantine rule for international travelers. Tourists who have been vaccinated against covid will be able to participate in tourist activities after entering Nepal. They don’t have to stay in quarantine.
This recent decision has made traveling to Nepal very easy for tourists all over the world. With removing the mandatory seven-day quarantine rule, the GON has also removed the Re-PPR test after arriving in Nepal for vaccinated travelers.
Therefore, anyone who has already taken two doses of vaccination against COVID can now travel to Nepal without bring a negative PCR test report and having to stay in quarantine. They can directly resume their journey after arriving in Nepal.
Meanwhile, non-vaccinated travelers will need to bring a negative PCR test that is no older than 72 hours from their first point of departure to Nepal. And after arriving in Nepal, they have to re-take the PCR test at their own expense. Those reports negative result may continue their journey subsequently. In case of a positive report, they will have to halt their journey until they show a negative report.
The Covid-19 pandemic turned 2020 into a total disaster for Nepal’s tourism industry. However, the year 2021 is starting on a hopeful note. We hope with this new regulation, and most tourists won’t hesitate to visit the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
