Nepal government to provide ‘conditional’ on-arrival visas to the tourist.
The Nepalese government has decided to reinstate visa-on-arrival services for visitors to the country. Visa services were temporarily halted on May 20 because to the former government’s Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. The government issued an order based on the Infectious Diseases Act of 2020 to offer on-arrival visas to fully vaccinated tourists (from countries that allow for on-arrival visas). Such passengers must present a document stating that 14 days have passed since their final Covid-19 vaccination injection, as well as a negative PCR report obtained within 72 hours of checking in for the flight.
Likewise, a legitimate permit in case of mountaineering, trekking or other similar activities, proof of hotel booking, printed document of International Travelers Online Arrival Form (filled through the site www.ccmc.gov.np) will also be sought by the authorities. The visas are to be provided at the checkpoint of the travelers’ entry.
