Government to provide 'conditional' on-arrival visas

With some conditions On arrival visa reopened for tourists and no more mandatory quarantine for fully Vaccinated Tourists

In an attempt to revive the country’s economy with the tourism business, The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has officially declared the reopening of the on-arrival visa process for tourists which has been closed for the past 5 months. Due to the second phase of the COVID-19 epidemic, the government had imposed several curbs on tourism sectors, including this on arrival visa restriction process.

As per the new decision of the government, fully vaccinated tourists can now issue an arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport. Including other visa processing documents, the vaccinated tourists have to submit proof of the completion of 14 days of vaccination against COVID-19. Furthermore, they also have to submit a negative PCR report generated within 72 hours before the flight check-in. 

Besides, international travelers must carry proof of hotel booking in Nepal

Showering happiness among the tourism entrepreneurs, the government has also decided to waive the 10-day hotel quarantine rule for International tourists. Vaccinated travelers with a negative PCR report can freely opt for any of the tours or trekking in Nepal.

Travelers who want to issue a visa from the Nepali mission of the particular country, also have to carry the certification of their vaccination. For the travelers who are not vaccinated, they can carry a visa from the concerned Nepali mission in their country. Further, unvaccinated tourists are allowed to visit Nepal only through the travel agency.

The rule for unvaccinated tourists is that they have to stay in 10 hotel quarantines for 10 day. On the 11th day after the test of a negative PCR report, they can freely visit the country.
