2022 Mar 22, 11:24, Kathmandu

It's been more than a year since the epidemic began, and things are finally seeing some light. However, many are still avoiding air travel because of the danger of COVID. For almost two years, the COVID-19 epidemic has been a world health emergency. Air travel has been one of the most affected areas, as airports and airlines seeked to comply with ever-tightening restrictions.

One of the most crucial factors to consider is that, as of March 2022, all passengers arriving in Nepal must have a PCR test negative result. However, if you have been fully vaccinated against COVID, you are not required to do so. This exemption applies to every sort of trip to Nepal, including both tourism and business visits.

If you have a valid vaccination certificate, travelling to Nepal is still possible despite the pandemic. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you must show proof of your vaccination.

How to Travel to Nepal despite the pandemic?

From now on, Nepalese and foreign tourists will not be required to submit a PCR report to Nepalese authorities. But, even after the second wave, and a lesser rate of COVID patients, we cannot deny its existence.

Nepal has sought to increase tourism to boost the economy since it launched Visit Nepal 2020. But owing to the damage caused by Covid, the tourism sector was badly impacted and the country's economy has been damaged severely as well.

The government of Nepal has established a number of regulations for visitors and tourists visiting Nepal, including all necessary rules. Now that the epidemic is over, we can go back to travelling.

Some of the guidelines to follow while you are travelling:

You may get a visa on arrival if you have received the full vaccination dose for at least 14 days before entering Nepal and possessing a passport from one of the nations that are accepted for visa-on-arrival.

A valid proof of vaccination with the full dose of the vaccine received at least 14 days prior to entering Nepal must be presented. If you're going mountaineering, trekking, or doing any other activity that may need permission and have a copy of the permit.

A printed copy of the online form (International Traveller Online Arrival Form) must be completed to complete access CCMC's official website.

Because safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19 are now accessible for everyone over 18 years old, the desire to flee from home may be stronger than ever.

Travelling to different destination of Nepal:

While travelling, we expose ourselves to so many people in airports, hotels, eateries, and public areas when we travel, it's always dangerous. Many of the individuals with whom we come into contact while travelling, bring infections from all over the world with them.

The danger of getting ill while travelling is particularly great during a worldwide pandemic, such as COVID-19. The consequences in low- and middle-income countries where national economies are based on a small number of services and industries, such as Nepal, are extremely concerning.

Nepal is a popular tourist destination. In 2018, tourism generated 7.9% of the country's GDP and supported over 1.05 million jobs. With the goal of creating over 1.35 million more by 2029.

In 2019, Nepal welcomed 1.19 million visitors, and the ‘Visit Nepal 2020' campaign was launched on January 1 to attract 2 million visitors, however things were stalled due to the pandemic.

Permits are being issued by Nepal for trekking and mountain climbing from autumn 2021 to spring 2022. But you should verify with your chosen travel agency on future operations.

Nepal is restricting entry based on country of origin, and prior travel. Certain airlines have reduced flight operations for both international and domestic commercial flights.

Although we are back to our normal lives, we cannot forget that the pandemic has not ended. Vaccination against COVID is highly recommended.

You'll need a mask that covers your mouth and nose while travelling by any transportation means in Nepal. If you're sick, or have been in close contact with someone who is, you should not travel.

If you haven't been fully vaccinated against COVID, you'll want to get PCR tests, before and after the trip.
