POKHARA: A Dutch tourist, who was working as a volunteer coach for Kaski District Football Association in Pokhara, has been arrested and fined Rs 1.4 million for overstaying in Nepal, the Department of Immigration, said on Friday.

In coordination with the Immigration Office, Pokhara, Tourist Police sent the arrested Dutch national Amedeu Kando de Olivera to the Department of Immigration in Kathmandu for further investigation and action.

According to the immigration records, Olivera had entered into Nepal as a tourist before the devastating earthquake in 2015. Ever since he has been staying in Nepal without renewing his visa.

European tourist Olivera was fined Rs 1.4 million for illegally staying in the country as his visa had already expired two years ago, the Immigration Office, Pokhara, said.

“Since last year, Olivera associated himself with the Kaski District Football Association (KDFA) as a volunteer coach,” said, Milan Gurung, chairperson of KDFA.

Earlier, Tourist Police had arrested Dutch national Olivera from the Lake City on October 17. As many as 22 tourists overstaying in the country were arrested from Pokhara in the last fiscal year.

Foreigners who overstay their tourist visa more than 150 days are charged a penalty fine of US $8/day.
