Tourist Visa latest news 21th March 2021
Tribhuvan International Airport is the only international airport in Nepal. Immigration Office, TIA (Tribhuvan International Airport) under the Department of Immigration has been facilitating tourists flying to Nepal by providing visas on Arrival. The ‘On Arrival’ visa procedure is very quick and simple. You can expect some queues during peak Tourist season.

Nepal has removed quarantine requirements for visitors who have got both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, a move aimed at boosting pandemic-depressed travel and tourism business.

Tourism Minister Bhanubhakta Dhakal told the Post on Friday that the decision to remove quarantine requirements for such foreign tourists was taken by Thursday’s Cabinet meeting.

“The new guideline to visit Nepal will be implemented soon,” said Dhakal.

Last week, the Tourism Ministry had proposed removing quarantine requirements for travelers who have received both doses of the vaccine and resume the on-arrival visa at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport.

It is, however, not clear whether the Cabinet has approved the ministry’s plan to resume issuing on-arrival visas at the airport.

Taranath Adhikari, the spokesperson for the Tourism Ministry, said that they were yet to receive a copy of the Cabinet decision.

“We will make the details public once we receive the copy of the decision,” Adhikari told the Post. “As per the proposal, tourists coming to Nepal have to submit documentation or cards as proof that they have been vaccinated.
