The entire world has been hit by the long-running COVID19 pandemic. Especially in Nepal, we've faced the first, the second, and now the third phase of the COVID pandemic. As a result, decisions have been made regarding the new travel guideline and regulations in Nepal for all foreigners, Nepalese and nonresidential Nepalese with the collaboration of the Home of Affairs, Covid Crisis Management, and other concerned authorities. Globally, the new variant omicron has spread in different parts of the country and it starts to hit Nepal as well. To avoid this variant in Nepal, the government has just issued new travel protocols for the people who are traveling from and to Nepal from different countries. 

The government of Nepal has issued the following order to manage the movement of Nepali and foreigners coming to Nepal from different parts of the globe without adversely affecting the prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of covid infection. 

This decision from the cabinet has made traveling to Nepal convenient for tourists all around the globe. If you are fully vaccinated against the COVID 19 and if you have a negative PCR test then you don’t have to stay in seven days of mandatory quarantine and you will get a visa on arrival in Nepal. So, anyone who has already taken two doses of the COVID19 vaccine can directly come to Nepal for any kind of travel and trekking purpose. They can directly resume their travel activity after arriving in Nepal. But there are a few countries where you are not allowed to enter Nepal. 

( South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Iswatini, Mozambique, Malawi, Hong Kong) as the first part of embarkation or transit or with a travel history are not allowed to enter inside Nepal. 

New travel guidelines for Nepal 2022 for vaccinated tourists are:

  • Negative PCR test of COVID19 test issued within 72 hours from the time of swab collection.
  • Copy of mountaineering/trekking permits or related permits if any. 
  • Proof of hotel reservation in Nepal. 
  • Print copy of International Travel Online Arrival Form obtained after online registration in ccmc.gov.np

Foreigners without complete vaccination of COVID19 must obtain a visa from the Nepali diplomatic missions abroad and be allowed to enter Nepal only through the agencies. In such a case, you must have all the documents like a vaccinated tourist along with 10days hotel quarantine is mandatory. If they get tested negative, only in such a case you can resume your travel and trekking activity in Nepal
