The government has continued the on-arrival visa facility for tourists who are fully vaccinated. The Department of Immigration issued a notice for passengers coming and leaving Nepal.

According to the department, the citizens of the countries who can get an on-arrival visa will continue to get the facility but only for the visitors who have been fully vaccinated.

If the visitor will have to submit a vaccination card and a negative PCR test within 72 hours of check-in for air flight, proof of hotel booking in Nepal, mountaineering, and trekking as well.

In this process, you have to fill out the online arrival form of the COVID Control Management Centre (CCMC). 

Antigen testing will be done at the immigration point of Nepal for those who have not been vaccinated. If tested positive, one may need to be isolated or even hospitalized. And if they are tested negative, then they would have to stay in hotel quarantine for five days.

Expenses for testing and isolation of Covid 19 and other expenses including insurance should be borne by the tourists themselves. On the other hand, Nepalis and non-resident Nepalis who are fully vaccinated will be allowed to go home if they bring a negative PCR test within 72 hours. However,  if they have any COVID symptoms, then an antigen test would be performed at the immigration point.

Vaccination and testing are not mandatory for children under 5 years of age. Although testing is mandatory for children between the ages of 5 and 18, vaccination will not be mandatory. Vaccination and corona testing have also been made mandatory for Indian nationals entering by land.
