Travel Advisory

April 05, 2021

Entry and Exit Requirement:

As of March 10, 2022, the Department of Immigration revoked all previously issued orders establishing country-specific travel restrictions. At the port of entry, all travelers, regardless of immunization status, can get on-arrival visas. New orders and amendments to existing orders may be issued with minimal notice. Please keep an eye on this space and the local media for any updates.

Travelers traveling in Nepal by air or land must produce proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. If a certificate is not available, travelers must produce a negative COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR, NAAT, Gene Xpert) taken within 72 hours of departure from the port of embarkation. On-arrival COVID-19 testing may be required for all symptomatic tourists.

Only the health protocols of the destination country apply to travelers departing Nepal by flight. Before boarding passengers, airlines will consult and implement such protocols.

Penalties for Failure to Wear a Mask:

Failure to wear a mask outside may result in arrest and a fine, according to the Nepalese government. There hasn't been any specific information released about possible penalties.

Restrictions on movement:

Within Nepal, there are no restrictions on movement. There is a lot of public and private transportation available. Passengers, on the other hand, are required to avoid crowds and adhere to rigorous guidelines in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Penalties may be imposed if municipal orders are broken.

In the Kathmandu valley, public transportation and personal vehicles, including taxis, are authorized but must conform to rigorous COVID rules. In many places, additional restrictions are still feasible.

The government has declared that the country is now open to tourism.

Quarantine Information:

Travelers, regardless of their vaccination status, are no longer required to undergo quarantine. According to the most recent travel alert, travelers are subject to COVID-19 testing, and those who test positive for COVID-19 on arrival may be denied entrance into Nepal.

Transportation Status:

The Nepalese Civil Aviation Authority (CAAN) has prolonged the suspension of several foreign flights and implemented a restricted flight policy. All domestic flights have resumed, and rigorous COVID measures are in effect, according to CAAN. Please contact your airline to inquire about future flight availability and the possibility of rebooking your travel. Cargo flights, rescue flights, and evacuation flights will only be operated with specific permission.

Travelers from outside the country are permitted to use Tribhuvan International Airport as a transit point to a third country.

All passengers flying with Qatar Airways must undergo a PCR test at a pre-approved laboratory 48 hours prior to departure.

Within 72 hours of departure, all other airlines require a negative PCR test result.

Passengers are asked to bring an extra copy of the PCR negative test report, complete with a photograph, with them on their journey.
