Nepal on Thursday threw away the seven-day quarantine requirement and resumed issuing on-arrival visas to all vaccinated foreign travelers in a bid to bring its virus-ravaged tourism industry back to life.Visitors should have received their last dose of Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 full days prior to entering Nepal.
Before boarding a flight to Nepal, all vaccinated travelers will have to present a negative Covid-19 test result taken 72 hours prior to the departure, and fill up the international travelers’ online form at www.ccmc.gov.np and have a printed copy to apply for on-arrival visa at the airport, according to the travel protocol published by the Tourism Ministry on Thursday.
If they test positive, they will be sent to an isolation centre or hospital recommended by the Health Ministry. According to the new rules, if there is no antigen testing facility at the airport or immigration point, foreigners have to undergo the test at the hotel. They will be allowed to leave the hotel if the test comes back negative.
Those who are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated will not get on-arrival visas. They have to get their entry permits from Nepali diplomatic missions, and also spend 10 days in quarantine in government-listed hotels.
“Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated tourists have to mandatorily quarantine themselves at the hotel for 10 days at their own expense. On the 11th day, if they test negative, they are free to travel,” according to the new rule.
All expenses for testing for Covid-19, isolation and insurance should be borne by the travellers themselves. Travel and trekking agencies are responsible for enforcing all conditions set by the new rule.Hotels will be responsible for implementing quarantine and isolation.
If visitors don't abide by the rules, the hotel should inform the police or other agencies concerned, according to the rule.
