The wait is finally over! Travelers with a negative PCR test can get an On-Arrival-Visa at the Tribhuvan International Airport. For foreign visitors, the Nepalese government has officially resumed Visa-On-Arrival services. A PCR test for travel can sometimes be hectic, but it is still the way to go as all the travelers as well as the tour organizers must be healthy and safe from the dangerous virus.
Due of the Covid epidemic, all the services were suspended for over two years. But now the country is finally returning to normality. As the situation improved, the restart of services was also permitted, and the Nepalese government formally modified travel regulations for visitors to Nepal. According to the new protocol set by the government, fully vaccinated foreign nationals are entitled for an on-arrival visa. Likewise, fully immunized travelers do not require quarantine. A PCR test for travel in Nepal is mandatory and the travelers must present documentation of negative PCR tests obtained at least 72 hours before to boarding the trip.
To obtain a visa on arrival at the immigration entry point, travelers must present the following documents:
- Certificate of Vaccination (Travelers must be vaccinated at least 14 days before traveling to Nepal).
- Travelers must have a negative RT-PCR or similar COVID- 19 report obtained within 72 hours.
- Passport with at-least six months validity.
- A proof of your hotel booking.
- A physical copy of filled International Traveler Online Arrival Form issued by CCMC.
