KATHMANDU, MARCH 25
The Government of Nepal has issued new guidelines for arriving tourists in an attempt to check the further spread of the COVID-19 infection amid fears of a second wave of the highly contagious virus.
Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoTCA) had proposed to issue fresh guidelines for arriving tourists in the country which was approved by the Council of Ministers under which the tourists who wish to come to Nepal are required to present a negative PCR report taken 72 hours prior to boarding or a confirmation report of completion of the vaccine dosage.
According to the newly issued guideline, following the arrival of the tourists in Nepal, they are expected to remain in self-paid hotel-quarantines until the receipt of confirmation of a negative PCR report taken in Nepal.
Similarly, the Indian tourists entering Nepal via air are requested to abide by the 'Nepal-India Travel Bubble Agreement.'
Earlier, travel, tourism and mountaineering related business owners had complained about the delay that had been made from the authorities to issue guidelines for arriving tourists in Nepal, which had resulted in confusion among the tourists leading to the cancellation of their arrival, costing business owners.
