The hotel industry in the country has expressed its pleasure to the government's decision of on-arrival visas for international tourists.

Issuing a press statement on the eve of the World Tourism Day on Sunday, the Hotel Association of Nepal (HAN) has praised the government's scheme to give on-arrival visas to tourists, which the HAN said, would encourage the country's already paralysed tourism industry.

The HAN has committed to resuming all services fully after the government decided to reopen the international borders and cancellation of stay in the quarantine facility for the tourists.

With the government's decision, the fully inoculated tourists won't have to stay in quarantine.

Similarly, the business community has urged the government to take a prompt move to delist Nepal from the 'red zone' at the international level as more than 40 percent of Nepalis have already received the first and second doses of vaccine against COVID-19.

The HAN has also asked the government to revive the country's tourism activities by providing a one-month-long visa for free to the international tourists and implement the 10-day tour package to the officials announced by the government.
