Good news for Nepal Tourism
The Nepal government’s decision to require quarantine for tourists who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or with a 72-hour PCR report has boosted the tourism sector. The procedure submitted by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has been approved by the Council of Ministers.
The cabinet has also decided to issue an arrival visa to tourists from Tribhuvan International Airport. The government had also stopped on arrival visas along with the lockdown last year. Director-General of the Department of Tourism Rudra Singh Tamang said that a tourism environment will be created in Nepal with the government’s decision.
“It will be easier now as the government has made a decision long after the proposal was sent,” said Rudra Singh Tamang, director-general of the tourism department. Tamang also informed us that they are preparing to test the PCR sample at the airport. The government has also abolished the $ 5,000 corona insurance requirement for foreign tourists.
Since October 20, the government had made an arrangement that tourists who want to come to Nepal should come to Nepal only with a visa from the Nepali Mission in the same country on the recommendation of businessmen and bodies related to travel and tourism. Source: Nepal News
