Tourists have to undergo PCR test and stay in mandatory hotel quarantine
KATHMANDU: The government has issued ‘Tourist Arrival Management Measures 2077’. The COVID-19 precautions have been issued after the cabinet meeting approved the criteria to manage the movement of tourists without any adverse effects on the control and prevention of the infection.
According to this, tourists who have been vaccinated against COVID and with a PCR test report have to get a PCR test mandatorily done and stay in a hotel quarantine until they get the results of the PCR test at their own expense in coordination with the concerned agency or organization.
If the test result is positive, tourists will have to stay in the hotel quarantine at their own expense following standard health criteria. Tourists who have a negative result of the test can go trekking or mountaineering or participate in related tourism activities through the concerned organization or agency.
However, special arrangements have been made for Indian tourists. Arrangements will be made for Indian tourists coming to Nepal by air in accordance with the Nepal-India Travel Bubble Agreement, those arriving by land will have to submit the documents as per Section 7 at the immigration point of the Nepal-India border and fully comply with the health safety standards approved by the government.
According to the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, all the criteria and orders issued earlier have been revoked with the new arrangement.
