Nepal to removed quarantine and resumed issuing on-arrival visas for all vaccinated foreign travellers

Nepal on 23 September, threw away the 7-day quarantine requirement and resumed issuing on-arrival visas to all vaccinated foreign travellers in a bid to bring its virus-ravaged tourism industry back to life.

Travellers should have received their last dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 full days prior to entering Nepal. 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.
Although, travellers who have secured a visa at Nepal’s diplomatic missions abroad have to submit a negative Covid-19 report and fill up the form and submit it at the immigration point. If they don’t have Covid-19 symptoms after their arrival in Nepal, they will be allowed to go to their destination.

“We have approved the removal of the quarantine requirement for all vaccinated travellers arriving in Nepal from all international destinations and updated the travel procedures effective from Thursday, September 23,” Taranath Adhikari, spokesperson for the Tourism Ministry, told the Post. “The measures are expected to boost the country’s tourism industry.”

Before boarding a flight to Nepal, all vaccinated travellers will have to present a negative Covid-19 test result taken 72 hours prior to the departure, and fill up the international travellers’ online form at and have a printed copy to apply for an on-arrival visa at the airport, according to the travel protocol published by the Tourism Ministry on Thursday.

The government has also opened land entry points for all tourists, including Indian travellers. According to the new rules, if the immigration points do not have facilities to conduct antigen tests, they need to do it at the hotel.
