Protocol for Fully Vaccinated Travelers

If you are fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic, you no longer require a negative Covid test report to fly to Nepal. But make sure that you submit a full vaccination certificate against the COVID-19 pandemic. This rule applies to all travelers entering from both air and land routes. 

Protocol for Non-Vaccinated Travelers 

Travelers who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and who failed to submit the vaccination certificate will have to submit the certificate of negative COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR, True NAAT, and Gene Xpert) within 72 hours of starting the journey. Similarly, travelers who have negative COVID test reports are no longer required to stay in quarantine. 

Resumption of Visa-On-Arrival in Nepal 

From today, the on-arrival visa has resumed for all travelers with fully vaccinated, vaccinated, and persons with COVID-19 test negative reports. Once you submit all the necessary documents to the airport or land entry point, you can get the visa on arrival easily.
