Globally, the new variant of 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.

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.
